ZOO – An Animal Kingdom in London Curated by Mr Gresty


Mr Gresty is at it again. He’s only gone and created another exciting artist brief for an upcoming art exhibition, called ZOO, at the Hanbury Arms in Islington, London. He’s invited us back, God only knows why, and we are happy to be exhibiting work next to some super talented and sexy artists, illustrators and designers.

I love the fact that Gresty’s briefs are so open to interpretation and you really do get a great mix of styles and executions. I would love to see him taking over a gallery (hint hint) as sometimes work in a pub is hard to get to and the focus is not on the work but rather on the ambience and the drink, not that I mind the drinking bit, and not one of of those poncey galleries with so many white walls that you feel blind and poor by the time you leave. Or better yet I reckon he should create a pub-themed concept gallery for his next show. No pressure! I’m not complaining by the way just shooting the shit.

We wanted to mix it up by submitting a skull. Because we’ve never done one before so we wanted to get out of our comfort zone. Okay, I’m allowed one bad joke a day. So we are creating a Macaw Skull with a lively background and it’s a beast as well – 50x70cm. You can see the process shots here if you want and once we have completed the artwork we will definitely be sharing it.

Visit the event page here and tell Facebook you are there like a bear. It’s a great little pub and they do great pizza’s and Doug and I will be there so win-win. See you there?
