Getting up in the school loos

Its easy to complain and harder to fix complaints. In this time of public spending cuts the friction between supply and demand of society and its infrastructure are at crisis. In the end i suppose, the message is if you want it done then fix it yourself. So we did, the loos for years 5 + 6 were in poor order and the parents teachers and care-taking staff all pitched in to repaint and spruce them up. A long day for the one coat crew and the kind help of Zadok from dead leg and Plastic bones.


Royal Academy Auction

On the 22nd of March the exquisite corpse canvas was auctioned at the At the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London, as part of the Royal Academy’s schools Annual Dinner & auction. There is a video here of the works displayed at Sotherby’s New Bond Street London. The evening was a big success with the work making £1275 for the Academy’s fund raiser. Thanks again to Club Monaco, Browns and the Mighty booth for making the whole thing allot fun.

Exquisite Corpse

exquisite_corpse

Unique canvas 105cm x 75cm
The work was created using photographs taken in the modified Mighty Booth
at the Royal Academy of Art on the 19th of February 2011 for the Club
Monaco UK launch.
These photographs were cut and pasted, in a manor based loosely on the
Exquisite corpse technique invented by Surrealists, at the beginning
of the 20th century. The work will be auctioned at Sotherby’s on the 22nd of March, the proceeds going to the Royal Academy of Art.

Cordy House

Well started at last painting Cordy House its a bloody big wall and we have a monster scissor lift and a hell of alot of paint so looks like its happening. Should be finished by the weekend ish.

Heres a picture of the team a painting, thanks to Addict for the dope clothes! I am sure they will keep us warm during the week. The team are Best ever, Dead leg, Dotmasters.

Munchen tunnel

Landed in Munchen this afternoon, went to the ghostyard paint shop where they raided their own personal stash for some shades they didn’t have on the shelves and went to visit where i am painting tomorrow.

Its a cool cycle tunnel by the river isar the tunnel has been curated by loomit and its looking great, Its a stroke of luck to get into this cool spot! Most of the artists have painted their walls with only loomit and myself left to paint. Theirs snow on the ground and its bloody cold, but tomorrow looks set to be a day of foot stamping and hand clapping spraying….cant wait. More photos to follow.

Mug

The Robin Hood Tax folk are putting on the pressure with a new campaign for the start of university’s new term. Mugs and postcards with Dotmasters graphics are at this very minute being collected around the UK by drunken freshers. Thank god one of the items is unusable as roach hopefully making it to the end of the first week.

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/14084957]

Friends of The dotmasters, Ubermorgen and James Powderly release this must have collection of USA torture classics straight from the forgotten holes where they keep all the forgotten victims.

TIME LIFE announces the release of the TORTURE CLASSICS COLLECTION. Torture Music is the kind of music that’s perfect for sitting in the Afghan or Iraqi Desert, sharing a prisoner for a night, or relaxing in a military barack or a CIA black site in some godforsaken country on a lazy afternoon. It’s music that just makes you feel free and drives others crazy. But, the artists included in the TORTURE CLASSICS COLLECTION have taken the Torture Music sound and given it a psychotic and everlasting quality. This Torture Music compilation includes 60 songs, tons of images, uncensored videos, pdfs and extra bonus material. The Ultiimate Collection DOWNLOAD-DVD inlcudes both The White Site Album and The Black Site Album.
