London Live: Daniel Crews-Chub’s ‘The Consequences of Play’

A new series of epic paintings by Daniel Crews-Chub have gone on display in Wellington Arch’s Quadriga Gallery.

 

The work is inspired by the capital’s Wellington Arch, Apsley House and Peter Paul Rubens’ painting the Consequences of War.

 

The six works called ‘The Consequences of Play’ reinterpret the original painting, which depicted Europe in the aftermath of the Thirty Years War.

 

Daniel has been explaining more to Alicia.

 

The exhibition is on until the 12 March 2022 Quadriga Gallery in Wellington Arch and is a partnership between Vigo Gallery and English Heritage.

BBC CHANNEL 4 NEWS: Zak Ove tackling slavery through Caribbean sculpture - Jon Snow (30.03.2017)

For the first time in its history the British Museum is putting on permanent display the work of a Caribbean sculptor in its African collection.

Zak Ove – drawing heavily on his own Trinidadian Irish heritage, has tackled the story of slavery by viewing it through the traditional Island Carnival, an exuberant annual parade that weaves together the story of slavery, rebellion and eventual liberation.

Leonardo Drew in 'Investigation' Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 7 October 24, 2014

Leonardo Drew, whose art career began as a child in inner city Bridgeport, Connecticut, transforms new materials—through processes of decay, oxidization, and exposure to weather—in his sculptures.

Never content with work that comes easily, Drew reaches daily beyond his comfort zone, charting a course of experimentation with his materials and processes and letting the work find its own way.

Sculptor Leonardo Drew on being “the crack addict of art”

Artist Leonardo Drew started out drawing superheroes. Over the past 30 years, he's become a highly acclaimed sculptor with work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Tate in London. Anthony Mason spoke with him about his new exhibitions and why he gave up drawing to build sculptors.

FIORUCCI X LAKWENA

Fiorucci presents a very special collaboration with artist Lakwena. Based in London, Lakwena employs bright colour and bold text to create paintings which, often appearing in public spaces in the form of murals, can be understood to be 'escape routes, afrofuturistic portals to utopia'. Fiorucci and Lakwena connect through their relationship with music, for as Fiorucci draws on disco, Lakwena draws on gospel, a musical culture that similarly centres around ideas of connectedness, spirituality and joy. The collection melds Fiorucci's visual language with that of Lakwena, combining bright colours, bold patterns, reworked logos and original motifs. The collection features all-over print denim jackets and jeans, shirts and velvet flares, along with printed Lycra tops emblazoned with Fiorucci's iconic Angels. The collaboration is presented via a short film starring Soul Sound gospel choir who, diverse in age and size, encapsulate this idea of coming together and deliver an uplifting message of connectedness and joy – perhaps in a time when we need it the most. The collection will be available online and in-store from November '21.
