Ten international artists work together to address problems of a post-Brexit world. Top on the agenda: How will the lonely, isolated British people get their stuff? Britain will stand alone, surviving on warm beer, cabbage and dry biscuits (like the good old days). What will they be willing to sacrifice for the sweet taste of foreign carbonated drinks? 


Taking on the theme of CONSUMPTION, artists will explore what it means to mentally consume ideas, how humans consume the world, and the ethics of consumption. Come feed on artworks that will EAT, DRINK, BREATHE, USE, ABUSE, WATCH, INGEST, DEVOUR, and GOBBLE UP your attention. 


Opening night on the 22nd will feature performances and live music.

The concept to put on a show of paintings simply for the medium of the material is so old fashioned it’s practically antique stated Laura Cummings in a Guardian Article in 2013. So in that vain of thinking we bring you the new fashion…… 

Paint! What is the state of Contemporary painting today? Well these four Artists from Chelsea College of Art put on a diverse range of styles and ways of making to explore exactly this issue. When asked Is Painting dead? Yawn stated Charles Saatchi in 2009. Ten years later and that statement still rings true. What a stupid question to ask…. ! 

Chelsea College of Art is World renowned for producing some of the biggest names in Contemporary Painting today and these four students are well on their way too. 

Some 100 years earlier a rather well known painter stated “Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the artists soul”  Vincent Van Goth

Paint in its very simplest form is pigment and a binder but once transformed by the Artist it becomes something else something magical inexplicable and a source of wonderment. It is as Van Goth said the Artists soul. 

Each of the artists in this exhibition have something unique to say a different perspective on painting, its medium, its message and its soul…… 

Paul Chisholm has said of his paintings that its a process which allows his soul to explore and express his deepest fears and emotions. His current series “ Clowning around the jokes on us? explores exactly this issue. 

Shefali Asija goes on to say Science fills me with awe and captures my imagination and gives me a  philosophical view of life and with my painting i explore its ability to capture these qualities to engage viewer  curiuosioty and to get them to think about the nature of existence. 

Lelia Byron’s perspective is I paint stories of people and places both real and imagined. Everything in this world has a story: objects, people, and places. I am a lover of stories and a storyteller myself. I paint individuals, but I also see my work as an exploration of the universality of human dreams, needs, struggles, and joys.

Youngchen says As a painter, do i express openness? When a painter agonises over how to select an object and express it, the object is not the object of reality. It is an object that everyone knows but the object in my painting is the subject of my own thinking at that moment of expression. 

So all in all Painting as a medium and as a message encapsulates the whole of the human spirit. Painting is very much alive !!! 

White Conduit Projects opened in Central London location at 1 White Conduit Street N1 in November 2014. It is showcasing Japanese artists and designers alongside British and international artists in a programme of innovative exhibitions across a variety of media.

Arts for Education @ House of Vans

Blue Dot Generation presents ‘The Arts for Education’ at House of Vans. A 4-day immersive event of art, photography, performances, documentaries, panel discussions, sport, fashion, workshops and music, aimed at educating us all on the damage we are doing to the oceans.

About

This event is an opportunity for old, young, green and non-green audiences to engage and  and their own connection to the planet through creative education. BDG is a sustainability platform promoting the use of the arts for education. By engaging local communities and inspiring international audiences it will transform the relationship between humans and the blue planet. Blue Dot Generation brings together artists, scientists and entrepreneurs who are exploring solutions to the problems our planet is facing. Science and art are both human efforts to understand, explore and describe the world around us, to communicate and share a vision of the world in different ways. Blue Dot Generation aims to harness these powers to educate and engage communities and inspire a change in how we treat the planet.

Our venue, House of Vans, is where “Of  the Wall” lives.

Located in Chicago, Illinois and Waterloo, London, as well as pop-ups around the world, House of Vans is home to the creativity that moves us.
In the vaults under London’s busiest station, Blue Dot Generation will bring the ocean to the city. Driven by their passion to make a difference, Blue Dot will change people’s habits by helping them visualise the seriousness of the challenges all living things are facing. Although London is far from the sea, this immersive event will transform the relationship between humans and the oceans.
