DRAW at StolenSpace


DRAW is a must-see exhibition featuring original drawings by 300 artists in the tattoo, literature, design, illustration, animation, skateboard, music, urban and contemporary art worlds. The show is a tribute to the often-underrated but fundamental building-block of visual and graphic art: the drawing.

Artists whose works are in the show include: Moby, Barry McGee, HR Giger, EINE, Clive Barker, Gibby Haynes, D* Face, Ron English, Kat Von D, Tim Biskup, Ben Cho, Mark Gonzales, Derek Hess, Rich Jacobs, KAWS, Neck Face, Rick Griffin, Hank Williams III, Kerry King, WK Interact, Aurel Schmidt, Louis Molloy and Phil Kyle of London Ink, Doze Green, Chris Johanson and Dalek. 25 artists from the UK are debuting works. Their pieces will continue as part of the Draw exhibit as it continues from London, on a six-country world tour that includes showings in Tokyo, Berlin, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

DRAW is the largest contemporary drawing exhibition to emerge out of New York City. The exhibit debuted in October of 2006 at Fuse Gallery to phenomenal response from audience and press alike. It had an equally impressive showing during the SXSW 2007 Music and Interactive-Film Festival in Austin,Texas.

DRAW is now making its much anticipated trip across the Atlantic. The 300 piece collection will open in London at StolenSpace gallery from 6th to 23rd March 2008.

DRAW is curated by Erik Foss and Curse Mackey with guest curators by Jamie O’Shea, Tim Barber, Jacaeber Kastor, Damian Weinkrantz,Les Barany, Brendan Fowler, Mike Aho, Sto, Victoria Perez and D* Face.

DRAW at StolenSpace is made possible by true support from Vice UK, Vans, Slam City Skates, MyToons, Action Arts Agency and Sosho.

NOTORIOUS, the screen version...


” NOTORIOUS, the screen version about the life of rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G., will begin on March 24, 2008 in and around the five boroughs of New York. The film stars multiple award winner Angela Bassett as Christopher’s mother Voletta Wallace, Derek Luke as Sean Combs, Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur and introducing Jamal [Gravy] Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G. …George Tillman Jr. is set to direct…

“Finding Big was a task in itself and I’m honored that so many young men came out to audition for the role,” said Voletta Wallace. “However, it was Jamal’s charming personality, warm spirit, wonderful sense of humor and beautiful smile that won my heart. He is a talented and charismatic actor and I am excited that he will bring Christopher’s character to the big screen.”

The film also stars up and coming actors Antonique Smith, Naturi Naughton, Dennis White and Julia Pace Mitchell.”

New Build!


I've been thinking of building a new bike for some time. Think I'm going to make a start soon. The picture above is the kind of thing I want to put together, created over at pedalmafia.com. The only things set in stone are the Bianchi Pista Concept Frame (2008) and the white Aerospoke. Everything else I'm going to source as I go along. Should be fun! I'm going to post up any components I find, so check back to keep up to date.
