PAINTINGS | DIGITAL ART | PRINTS | PHREAK MUSIC | AR | OBJECTS
A multidisciplinary creative studio producing original paintings, organic conceptual digital art, music/sound, prints, installations, and occasional one-off design pieces.
ORIGINAL MUSIC ART PAINTINGS
“Don’t you wonder sometimes…about Sound and Vision?”
MUSIC GRAFFITI is - at first examination - a series of textured music-inspired paintings, with each painting represents the interpretation and transformation of a musical idea or thought into a visual concept.
However, the paintings are also the genesis node of a feedback creation loop that encompasses sound & vision, music & art, original PHREAK MUSIC, physical/digital dimensions and augmented reality.
ORGANIC CONCEPTUAL DIGITAL ART
THE NO$TALGIA SHOW
“The idea concerns the fact that this country wants nostalgia. They want to go back as far as they can - even if it's only as far as last week.”
- GIL SCOTT HERON - B-Movie
‘The NO$TALGIA SHOW’ is a long-term series of physical and digital artworks examining Transience, Obsolescence, Transformation, Retro-Utopianism and the Nostalgia/NO$TALGIA phenomenon.
The conceptual thread of 'The NO$TALGIA SHOW' is that the emergence of nostalgia as a fully commoditised cultural phenomenon has ripple effects that reverberate - both subjectively & objectively - through culture, society and politics.
Artworks include installation, digital art, audiovisual video collage and augmented reality giclée prints.
MUSIC GRAFFITI | DIGITAL REMIX
“It’s all sound, it’s all vision, it’s filling your head full of music and sound…”
— Peter Wagg, Producer, ‘Max Headroom’.
The MUSIC GRAFFITI paintings are the ‘genesis node’ within a long-term creative project called FEEDBACK LOOPS that explores transformation between the sensory spaces of Sound & Vision, Music & Art…while traversing back and forth between physical and digital forms.
FEEDBACK LOOPS artworks include the 'FRACTAL / FRACTURED GROOVE’ digital art MP4’s ‘PHREAK MUSIC’ soundscapes, audiovisual collages, and augmented reality installations.
These transformations are then reworked back into the physical pieces by adding them as a multisensory dynamic AR (augmented reality) layer that is accessible through the Artivive smartphone app when viewing the original paintings and any reproductions.
