A new book from Northern Irish creative Oliver Jeffers is hitting the shelves at Gestalten.com. Oliver is now world-famous for his illustrated children’s books; Lost and Found and the New York Times bestseller Stuck. I’ve also noticed some of his handy work in the new kinder ad below. This new publication focuses on his other projects outside the world of children’s illustration. It includes personal and collaborative pieces and installations. You can buy the book through the link below and see a previous post on Oliver Jeffers’ work here and animation with Mac Premo here.
New work from Irish Artist Conor Harrington. These 3 paintings were done in conjunction with the 13th Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
“In a way, I’ve always thought Belfast was the last place I could paint. They have such a strong tradition of sectarian murals depicting political and historical scenes from both an Irish Nationalist and British Loyalist agenda and although my work has vastly different intentions, my imagery could be perceived as being closer to 1 side of that political divide.”
A superb documentary looking at a selection of the very vibrant Irish DIY Music scene over the last decade and a little further by Community Of Independents. With insightful interviews from the bands, the record shops, the promoters and record labels; along with live performances from ASIWYFA, Adebisi Shank, The Redneck Manifesto, The Jimmy Cake, Hands Up Who Wants To Die, Halves and a good few more.
Large scale paintings from Belfast based Artist Colin Davidson. Colin will be having a solo show entitled ‘Transmission’ at the Oliver Sears Gallery, Dublin. The Exhibition starts Friday 23rd of March and runs until the 20th of April 2012.
