Project: The Flamingo Arts Project
Flamingo, one of Creature’s absolute favourite magazines for illustration, arts and music, is launching it’s first group illustration show at Betty’s Coffee, Kingsland Road, on Friday 26th August. Nine super-talented illustrators, all past contributors to the magazine, have been chosen for their shamelessly bold, graphic style.
The Flamingo Arts Project is a brand new venture, aiming to showcase work by the best emerging artists, and to promote illustration within the wider arts community through an eclectic programme of workshops, exhibitions and discussions. Friday’s show is set to be the first of many, so watch this space!
With commissions from the likes of YCN, inkygoodness and House of Holland under their belts, this is the first time this dynamic group of illustrators will be exhibiting their own self-initiated work to the public. So who are they? Maggie Li, Hattie Stewart, Hayley Warnham, Joey Dean, Donya Todd, Jo Cheung, Jen Bailey, Shaun Lynch, and last but certainly not least, Emma Brown.
Everyone’s invited to the Private View on Thursday 25th August from 6pm for a beer, a chat with the artists, and of course a preview of the original artwork on show. Don’t be shy, apparently they’re all very nice! If you want to pop along, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’ll find Betty’s Coffee, Dalston’s newest independent coffee house and gallery space, at 510b Kingsland Road, London. The exhibition runs from 26th August until 17th September 2011.
