Offset57 x Real Nice Collective Present 'Flagship # 1' @ Brewdog Aberdeen!

The lovely folks at Offset57 have teamed up with local illustration collective Real Nice Collective and Brewdog to bring you an evening of live painting, prints and beer! Over the course of the evening artist's Katie Shiach and Mike Hughes consumed vast quantities of alcohol to help them power on and complete the rather stunning mural you see below.

Curated by Nicola from Offest57 the event also saw prints being sold by various Offset57 contributors, taking the Offset pop up shop to a new level! Its cool to see another live mural being created and to see the support for such events from Brewdog, bringing cool people together in a cool space to create something cool? The previous mural night curated by WLD WLVS was also a big hit and as this is 'Flagship #1' I can only assume there will be more to follow! I just hope I'm not sitting on a train as I was for this one, I would even bring along some records to help spur the artists on and inspire them, everybody loves Marvin…

Candy for the Eyes & Ears 21! Ciredz & Lusine!

Been a while since I posted some recommended listening and viewing so here's a couple of things which have definitely give me a good vibe. First up the public murals of Ciredz. Blending colours and shapes to create 3D works which are quite simple in appearance but seem to hint at bigger things. I saw Ciredz working away while I was in London in February and it was great to see the tip of a roller bobbing up and down as he filled out the waveforms over the green plinth (see final image). You can find out more about Ciredz here.

A good friend played me this album, a few years ago now but its one that I always find myself coming back to. A Certain Distance by Lusine is a perfect example of electronic music with a soul, akin to Boards of Canada but with a lighter melodic vibe. Mixing laid back tunes with some amazing vocals from Vilja Larjosto helps make A Certain Distance a record that breaches boundaries, its dance music, its pop music and its ambient at the same time. Perfect for si…
