Glasto Chic

At the appproach of Glastonbury Festival and the promise of unusually good weather Anna Higgie has her paint brush in hand and is making a mural of it! You can see her artwork at the West Holts bar near the West Holst stage. Big reppin'!

London Zoo!

ELLO, ELLO, ELLO what have we here? Some rather cheeky chappies from charming folk illustrator Margaux Carpentier for London Zoo - be sure to spot her murals there too. She has such an individual style that sets her apart from other folk illustrators, crossing the boundaries of painting into the lands of graphic vectors - we can't get enough of these cute guys. Thanks Margaux, you've cheered us right up.

Tequila

TEQUILA TEGUILA! Mural artist Ricardo Cavolo was commissioned by reputable tequila brand Jose Cuervo to create four vibrant illustrations for their 222nd anniversary limited edition bottles. We haven't got a hard copy of this product but we can provide the salt and lime if anyone else does?

Zesty

The wonderful folky tones of Aitch span far and wide, decorating packaging in bespoke florals and winding vines, covering billboards with cheerful characters and playful patterns. There's been a lot cooking for Aitch behing closed doors that we can soon reveal (hold tight). Meanwhile to keep your appetites satisfied we're sending you some juicy vine oranges. Sumptuous and satisfying - full of zest and great for colds. Just beware of the sneaky snake...

Get With The Times

Lynnie Zulu paints an interesting picture for the Sunday Review cover of the NY Times highlighting the benefits of diversity. Here's a taste of the insightful article to put this in context:

 

"What President Trump doesn't seem to have considered is that diversity doesn't just sound nice, it has tangible value. Social scientists find that homogeneous groups like his cabinet can be less creative and insightful than diverse ones."

 

Here's to diversity and progress! Thanks Lynnie.

Folk Magic

Earthy yet exuberant, folky yet fantastical Margaux Carpentier is a delicious contrast of visual flavours. Inspired with a wild imagination and posessing serious talent with a brush- she's our January treat to you all. Margaux has been in our sight line for a while and we're very happy and very proud to say she is now an official CIA artist.

Tour of Britain

A Bath mural by the artist behind Radiohead's album covers has been updated to celebrate this year's Tour of Britain cycle race.

Stanley Donwood's mural on Walcot Street now features a menacing peloton of cyclists fiercely racing through a previously empty woodland path. The prolific Simon Spilsbury was spotted in Bath adding the riders to the large black and white mural last week, VERY NICE!
