‘LOADING’ exhibition at the Resistance Gallery 02/08/12

July 24, 2012

An art exhibition will take place at the Resistance Gallery in Bethnal Green, London, on 2 August to raise money for the NAS. The evening will be held by artist and graphic designer, Matthew Doyle of the Raw Meat brand. The “Loading” exhibition is an evening of art dedicated to, and inspired by, video games from the 1970s to present day. Doyle’s own work will be featured along with over 50 other artists; two of whom will be painting live.    

Doyle said: “After unleashing my inner nerd and love for video games, and combining it with my appreciation of the art world, it was inevitable that Loading would be the next Raw Meat exhibition.  

“I decided to hold the event in aid of The National Autistic Society as I’ve seen firsthand the impact autism has on people’s lives. It’s a great to be able to mix business with pleasure and feel like you’re making a difference.”    

In 2010, Doyle was involved in a serious motorbike accident, which left him bed-bound for eight months. In the bed opposite him was an inspirational boy with autism; so much so that as soon as Doyle was back on his feet, he started volunteering at a school for children with autism.

Venue: Resistance Gallery, 265 Poyser Street, Bethnal Green, London, E2 9RF
Date: Thursday 2nd August
Time: 8.00pm

MARK LYKEN TASTER

April 26, 2012

Lyken is a Visual Artist & Musician based in Glasgow, Scotland.  He was among the first to write Graffiti in Scotland in the 80s & transition to Gallery work. His paintings toy with scale and time, worlds within worlds, chemical universes at a microscopic level. His music reflects this same detail, decayed sounds and transmissions shimmer in space, a melodic sea of scientific musical patterns that chime with that certain universal emotion.

Growing up, his family moved between Scotland & South Africa, never remaining in one place for longer than a year or two. This resulted in quick adaption to new situations, people and opportunities. He drew endlessly as a child and recorded mock radio shows on his Grandad’s reel-to-reel. At sixteen he asked for a drum machine rather than driving lessons for his birthday.

A restless curiosity means he continues to record, travel & exhibit, applying his abstract style to different surfaces & mediums.  His Debut album “Bit Rot” is out now on Gamma Proforma.

He still can’t drive.

Which means he’ll be getting the train down to Bristol next week in preperation for his new solo show opening at Art-el of Friday 4th May.

Here’s a little taster of what is to come.
