Claudio Ethos hails from Sao Paolo, Brazil and his artistic history starts from very humble beginnings. From painting in the classic Brazilian style of Pichacao, to his current surrealist self, Ethos continues to push the creative envelope. His choice of using just stark black and white in his work brings his work to a more dramatic level, where the 'distraction' of colours cannot be employed.
I had arranged to meet Lucas Price the day before his solo show opening at Black Rat Press Gallery. The great thing about this interview was the fact that it didn't feel like an interview at all. It was more like meeting an old friend to give them support on an artistic endeavour. Sometimes, this can be the best situation for a bit of Q & A, as the answers you often tend to get are a lot more honest and heartfelt.
I love how Lucas is able to produce works that stylistically, are worlds apart from each other, yet all created by the same hand.
Mixing melodic folk with banging electro... 2 completely different genres? Such a combination is likely to have already been somewhere in the recent music scenes where anything goes, but surprisingly, I haven’t heard music like this before. Beautiful acoustic guitar melodies and pleasant vocals on prominent songwriting interwoven with dynamic electro beats... all sounds rather new. James Yuill has established his own unique view of the world, which he describes as the happy marriage between the electronic and the organic worlds.
Sarah Pulvertaft's work and working processes have evolved over the years. She began at the fashion end of the spectrum, designing two collections of jewellery a year and exhibiting at London Fashion Week and exporting to the US and Japan. She now works also at the other end of the spectrum creating pieces that are exploratory and evolve more gradually.
