Food Inspired Paper Art by Sarah Dennis

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As well as publishing a number of children’s books, producing bespoke commissions and exhibiting artwork for galleries, a major influence over this year’s work has been food! This is largely because Sarah’s brother (the chef) and father (the foodie) have teamed up and opened their very first restaurant. Sarah has helped by produced the logos, graphic designs and menu covers. But most excitingly she has also completed a beautiful collection of food inspired papercut artwork, which now features on the walls of the restaurant. Sarah believes that cooking, food and art are very much entwined and this project has opened a whole new world of artistic possibilities. She has relished the opportunity to influence a space with her paper artwork, drawing influence from the creativity of her brother’s cooking and the magic and colour of incredible ingredients.

Pop Artoons

TEODORU_FLYER-2

The works presented are from the Art Print Project called Pop Artoons and the Pop Artoons Exhibition that will take place in Mai at Gallery Olschinsky.

The main goal of the Project was to create a series of art prints, that will be attractive for adults as well as for children. The Project is divided in three bodies of works, Dead Wood, Skull Toons and the name giver Pop Artoons.

The Dead Wood and the Pop Artoons works are based on character drawings and are my characters and designs. For the Skull Toons artworks, I decided to use a kind of hybrid between, classic cartoon characters and my cartoon skull design.

This Is Not A Toy

The exhibition explores the conceptual toy as an art and design object as well as a contemporary cultural signifier. On view until May 19, “This Is Not A Toy” transforms the museum into a candy-colored dream world, displaying both forms such as quirky tiny figures and massive freestanding sculptures. Guest curated by Pharrell Williams, which includes works by Takashi Murakami & KAWS, amongst others.

ILLUSKATE TABLES (KICKSTARTER)

droog79-table450

As the name maybe suggests, the “Illuskate” table is the coming together of illustration and skateboarding in a unique limited edition piece of art-furniture.

3D Designer Stuart Melrose has collaborated with four up & coming artists to produce this unique table based on skateboard production technology of bent maple and laminated graphics. The artists Droog79, Kev Munday, DirtyThirty and Burn 353 have each produced a range of designs for the tables which will be available in two sizes and a limited edition of just 300 each.

The prototypes and first batch have already been made and sold and now we are using Kickstarter to crowd-fund the production of a larger second batch of both size tables.

You can back the project for as little as one pound and ypu start getting rewards from just 2 quid. These include some brilliant artist paper toys, a limited edition collaboration print, exclusive t-shirts and of course the beautiful tables themselves.

Please help out this grass-roots, international collaboration project!
