London Arts Board

I have always been interested in how galleries promote emerging artists. I was recently introduced to the London Arts board. The London Arts Board is a dis-used municipal notice board on the corner of Peckham Road and Vestry Road, Camberwell. It is now a gallery dedicated to giving emerging artists the chance to have a solo exhibition in London.

I think the idea of brining an art gallery outside so people are able to engage with it on their commute into work of visit to London is absolutely brilliant. Some people can feel a bit intimidated by going into a gallery but this is a great solution as is it something people can interactive with as part of their everyday life.

Each month an emerging artist gets the chance to showcase their work in a solo exhibition. On the blog this is documented. All the work on display varies from collages to paintings. A recent piece, Ram Raider (Fugitive) a Mixed Media Collage by John Bunker caught my eye because of how he had combined media.

The artist's work appealed to me because of how he has captured a sense of the urban environment in London. It is in keeping with the busy atmosphere of the city which has been depicted by the bright colours.

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
