Jeremyville creates and posts one Community Service Announcement a day from his New York studio - sweet, insightful thoughts about the important things in life. The childlike illustrations and innocent but universal statements can't help but make you smile and reflect.
Stay up to date on his facebook page, purchase limited edition prints and peruse other projects on his website.
In amongst the mountains of tat inspired by the upcoming royal nuptials it's nice to see something with a little taste. Behold! is a bold circus style screenprint by James Brown in the union jack colours of red, white and blue. Available from Keep Calm Gallery.
A friend sent me a link to this new 'Clean Art' project currently adding a little life to the dirty walls of Hastings town. Created by applying a stencil then pressure washing over it in a kind of reverse graffiti, these stylised geometric moths (all native to the area) are left behind. Take a look at The Hastings Moth Project by zeroh in more detail here.
My favourite exhibit - Make Your Mark by YOLO. Dozens of pencils hung suspended from the ceiling by helium filled black balloons. Visitors were encouraged to pick one and draw upon the undulating gridded paper below:
[pullquote author="YOLO"]The pencil is used as a metaphor for a person's life. One pencil. One life.
Surreal yet serenely blissful, the floating pencils represent lives detached, potential unrealised and dreams suspended. Our exhibit explores the tension of indecisions that lure us from leaving a trace on life’s canvas. All of us have a legacy to leave on the canvas of life, let us make a mark. You only live once. Make it count.[/pullquote]
Nice to come across a new venue filled with so many inspiring exhibits.
