For now my life seems to be absorbed with spreadsheets, dissertations and craft supplies, which all sounds fairly humdrum and boring, and yeah some of it is, but all are means to an end. With that in mind, I'd quite like it if between now and the foreseeable end that I took a wee break. What's a skinto student to do?
Naturally I've got my eyes set on Recoat Galleries latest exhibition - Power Power II - a solo exhibition of London based illustrator Maya Wild. Maya works in pencils, paint and collage and the exhibition features portraits mainly of musicians and the exhibition includes drawings of M.I.A, Patti Smith, Die Antwoord, Prince, Grace Jones, Dizzee Rascal and more.
Maya has designed for the likes ofDazed & Confused, Nylon Magazine, EMI, Adidas and The Rolling Stones, so with a client base like that you know her work is going to be all kinds of special. The exhibition looks fucking amazing and will be running at Recoat Gallery till the 8th April. While the portraits of the likes of Grace Jones and Prince are dreamy as anything, the bright geometrical prints are what gets my heart a peeter pattering. Of course they come on a tshirt.At £28 a pop....get on my body. I'd like one of each please.
Recoat is open Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-6pm and can be found at 323 North Woodside Road.
