Sweet and Sound

One of the perks of working in Chapter One is the high volume of cool people that come in and say hi. Todays awesome visitor was Shane who runs Sweet and Sound, something that had been going off on my radar for a while now...and so i want to use this blog to show you guys the good work Sweet and Sound is doing...

Now in London it seems that everyweek there is a new blog or magazine (who said print was dead?) intent on plunging the nail into Vices coffin...however amongst all the hordes, only the strong will survive...and Sweet and Sound is as strong as they come.

With a slant heavy on content, and a simple (almost too simple for some) design, the focus of this is, in my words...good shit! good articles, good photography...what more do you want?

Sweet and sound also organises parties, have their own tv channel and has some great things in the consider yourself warned! but more importantly, i feel with Sweet and Sound, they are another reason why London is slowly coming alive again...

Sweet and sound is an online site but with a printed magazine...and we have some copies in the gallery for £3...and they will be going online on monday in the shop

Earlier i posted the gallery flyer for our next exhibition OUR ENDS...and after some surfing i found two of the artists (Michael Willis & Linsey Gooden) have created an alternative image - equally as awesome...follow their twitter or their blog

REBEL zine

Today Samuel Francois kindly sent us some rare deadstock copies of a 2008 group show catalogue he was in called 'REBEL'.
The theme of the work in 'REBEL' is unsurprisingly based around the concept of rebellion and the characteristics of being a rebel.
Featuring Aurélien Arbet, Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Claire Decet, Jérémie Egry, Morgan Fortems, Samuel François, Joe83, Olivier Kosta-Théfaine, Stefan Marx, David Meier, Justin Morin, Nano4814, Patrick Perrin, Gregory Wagenheim.

Edition of 300
ISBN : 978-2-9531409-1-0

We have 5 copies in the shop, and this publication was hard to find when it was just this is perhaps you very last chance to grab a copy!!!

Images are starting to come in for our next show OUR ENDS...and below is a sneek peek at Michael Willis & Linsey Goodens contribution...a collection of new images printed on mirrored paper...OUR ENDS...coming soon!

Raymond Teitsma

I first met the awesome Raymond Teitsma last year when i was in Poland for a group show and he was giving GENESIS artist Merijn Hos a lift in his and his girls awesome van. In the back of the van was some of his framed works and this turned it into a mobile gallery. He had driven from the Netherlands and was heading south to Greece and not only was i in love with the idea of an European artistic easy rider-esque journey but i was instantly blown away by his work....Bold, colorful, playful, warped...instant great pop art with a punk twist - minimal childlike/naive/scary faces show scenes of brutality highlighting the evil and violence rather than softening them...i was hooked! Today i came into the gallery and he had sent some zines for the shop..and these zines are so good (below are some images)...needless to say - a must have!
Get them here!
