Last Saturday night I spent a wonderful evening inside a greenhouse in Dalston, as Costa Blanca Maritime supper club was launched by host Javier Leal. The setting for this supper club was more intimate than others I have attended, with a total of 15 people (approximately) coming along. The smaller crowd meant that each of the 8 courses could be loving prepared and presented; each was delicious, with my favourite being the stewed pork cheeks with dried apricots and red wine. The evening wrapped up around midnight and I was so incredibly full that I decided the hour walk home would do me the world of good, which it did.

During one of my second year Art History lectures, my teacher handed me a folded piece of paper with an artist name written inside. My task was to research this artist and write my mid-year paper on their life and work. By chance, I received the name of Pop Art legend, Roy Lichtenstein and although unfamiliar with him at the time, he was to become a favourite of mine.
An exhibition of his work is currently on show at the Tate Modern, titled ‘Lichtenstein: A Retrospective‘ and runs until the 27 May. The video also shown above demonstrates more of Lichtenstein’s working method, his life and influences, which includes an appearance from fellow Pop Artist, Andy Warhol.Read More
The band have teamed up with Danish director Andreas Koefoed documenting their new album Piramida. I imagine this to be the ultimate creative expedition; travelling to a remote Russian mining town, recording all sorts of wonderful sounds and turning them into a beautiful album. Jealous.
Captain and I went to see The Piramida Concert last October at the Barbican. It was one of the best experiential shows I’ve seen in a while. The dreamy sounds were brought to life with The Northern Sinfonia, and Hvass&Hannibal created a lovely graphic stage set and projection reel which probably deserves a post of its own.
The Ghost of Piramida is showing later this month in London, I’m looking forward to reliving the concert and getting a whole new appreciation for the songs on the album.Read More
Variable are a NY based film studio that produce emotionally charged clips that leave you clicking the replay button. In the case of the above project ‘Holi‘, its intended purpose is to help viewers engage with and take notice of the beauty in life and culture. This particular piece focuses on capturing slow moving scenes from the annual Hindu festival ‘Holi’ in celebration of the coming of Spring.
Another favourite from their film reel is ‘A Reflection‘. This pieces is shot in Poland, where the Variable team happened to meet local street busker, Władysław Tomczyk. Conviced his story was worth capturing, the team extended their trip by three days, resulting in the above clip. Władysław story is one of love and hope.Read More
