Everything Has Been Done Before: Art by Acrylicize Collective

Studio 7 Shoreditch is an extension of the acrylicize collective's neighbouring studios; an award winning collective of artists, designers and craftsmen, disrupting both the traditional art world model and accepted notions of branding. By playing in the space between Art and Design we tell the unique stories of our global clients, creating bespoke artworks that champion our concept of ‘Art as Identity’.

A team made up of 25 individual members, all with a background in the arts, will be creating their own works around the concept 'Everything Has Been Done Before' and exhibiting in this one-night special, accompanied by live music and drinks.

The concept is inspired by a conversation the artist's often have in the studio addressing the purity of an idea against the backdrop of unlimited information - having a thought then finding something similar already exists out there. 

Does this make the idea less relevant? Should that prevent someone from doing that idea?How many great ideas have not got off the ground because of this? Is the fact that people make similar work actually a movement? Would it have been different before the internet age? If so, has the internet fucked everything up`/ What is the cultural significance of all of this?

acrylicize think these are important questions that are very relevant to their practice, industry and the culture as a whole.

The Creative Power of the Mind 1

Following the successful launch event, join us for the first instalment of The Creative Power of the Mind - a series of events featuring a selection of creatives from artists, writers and musicians, to experts in creativity and those who make a living selling creative ideas. Each will be hosted by resiliance coach, Elizabeth Lovius.

Everyone is creative - whether they believe it or not.

Our first speaker of the series is John Scott who has worked in the creative industry for 16 years, 8 of which as a design director delivering retail and branding projects for some of the worlds top brands. Around 2013, however, he had noticed that the effortless and instinctive way that ideas would come to him in the early part of his career were rarer and increasingly sporadic. How and when he would find himself in a creative flow became more unpredictable. John began to look for ways to have his mind be more consistently creatively productive. At this talk we will be discussing the nature of the creative mind. Is it something we do or is it something much more natural?

John Scott a former Creative Director, is now a coach and Founder of iamJohnScott and co-creator of A Curious World.

Join Elizabeth and John to explore:

- How does the creative mind work?
- What are the blocks and limits to creativity?
- Are good ideas rationed and where do they come from?
- Can anyone be creative?
- How can you unlock your creative potential?

Faces of the Community: Launch

Join us for the launch event of 'Faces of the Community' at Principal Place, 115 Worship Street - RSVP to amber@acrylicize.com

ABOUT THE PIECE

From the 24th to the 28th of July, six UK artists will energetically paint 16 large-scale portraits ‘plein air’ across Principle Place’s brand new piazza. The new Brookfield development offers a thriving public space, set to stage an exciting programme of events and community driven activities.

Faces of the Community expresses the unique vibrancy of Shoreditch as seen through the faces of its residents. Taking inspiration from Victorian silhouettes made popular in the 19th century, these contemporary portraits capture the energy, diversity and colours of Shoreditch.
 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Mr Cenz

Mr Cenz has been scribbling on surfaces since 1988 when he first discovered hip- hop culture and graffiti art. Working from portrait and fashion photographs, he creates abstracted and mysterious compositions. Fusing photorealism, illustration and graffiti, his distinctive style layers intricate and flowing letterforms, shapes and line work in a uniquely rhythmic way that can be seen all over London.

Stephen Chappell

Stephen Chappell is a self-taught artist. His work bridges a gap between ne art and street art, playfully moving across styles and medium. His latest body of work focuses on portraiture and gurative designs, layered and distorted to create a sense of depth and texture. Chappell enjoys working on a large scale, often on found and reclaimed materials.

Isabella Timothy

Most comfortable at large scale for its notable impact, Timothy makes
use of colour, composition and texture. Fascinated by the contrast and inconsistencies between self perception and perception by others, self-taught Timothy continuously returns to self-portraiture. Her work seeks to capture the vitality and emotions of the people around her in their natural environments and situations.

Brook Tate

Brook Tate primarily works in oils, with a focus on portraiture and the human subject. She aims to capture the feelings and emotions of her models and depict the stories behind their faces. A self-taught UK based painter, she is attracted to creating bold and powerful work that is highly influenced by traditional painting techniques.

Rosie Crawley

Crawley’s practice responds to an individual’s personal experience of trauma. Using fragmented imagery, she often leaves parts of her canvas blank representing the distance she believes people feel when looking at the pain of others.

Carne Griffiths

Working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy and vodka, Griffiths’ fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line. His images explore human, geometric and oral forms, abstracting images and situations encountered in daily life. His work has a dreamlike quality that invites the viewer to escape into an inner realm.
