We are in the final stages of completing a massive project collaboration with Cutty Sark Whisky.
They asked four of the RareKind Artists (Jimi Crayon, Alfa, Celine Choo and Garry Milne) to create a mural depicting the brand's London to Shanghai connections and the brand's young, fresh new look. We carried out the live work a few days ago on the roof top at Cordy House, East London. Here are some of the work in progress images.
Final images and film to follow.
Cutty Sark also kindly provided us with whisky, ginger ale, limes and green tea to celebrate at the end of the two day shoot. Delicious!
Brighton based Internet company, Propellernet recently relocated to lovely new and inspirational offices.
A 30-foot graffiti mural, depicting the journey from Brighton to London was commissioned by Propellernet and designed and carried out by David Samuel, RareKind.
The mural was filmed and edited by Greg Brand, and is featured on the Propellernet website.
We recently hooked up with our good friends at Dephect Clothing to assist with their stunning poster exhibition. The show, 'On Paper', was a culmination of 10 years of Dephect clothing graphics, translated on a limited edition run of litho prints.
Prints, and full range of Dephect clothing available from Dephect.com
Internet company Propellernet asked RareKind to create a mural for their new offices representing a futuristic train journey from London to Brighton. David Samuel worked on the project and this is the 10 meter long finished piece.
Well worth clicking for a larger view!
RareKind were approached some months ago by DJ Hero to create 3 global campaign graffiti walls for the launch of the new game, currently taking the world by storm. One in London, South Africa and Athens.
Pictured, the London wall by David Samuel painted in East London. Amazing!
A very lovely couple asked us to create them a family crest canvas to celebrate their wedding. The idea behind the canvas being that it represented all the elements of their relationship and what they and their children were into at the time of the wedding.
The infinitely talented Alfa was chosen for the project and the results speak for themselves.
A really lovely project to work on!
Following the massively successful May 09 launch of the new RareKind Gallery, the UK’s only 100% genuine graffiti art gallery; we are proud to present the first ever solo show by the award winning artist, Bill London.
Arguably one of the UK’s most skilled graffiti artists with a career spanning ten years, Bill London has consistently raised the bar for London Graffiti. His skill, subtlety and innovative subject matter have buyers champing at the bit to get their hands on his illusive canvases.
Influenced by an eclectic mix of architectural line, bold colour, traditional tattoo and oriental art, Bill London applies the cloak and dagger elements of purist graffiti ‘Wild Style’ (camouflaged lettering and words through intricate manipulation) with delicate aesthetic elements and layering to create hypnotic final pieces, which can be appreciated on infinite levels.
Alongside these wild-style canvases, the ‘They Seek Him Here’ show also includes a series of 3 illustrative, concept pieces, exploring themes on Britain’s dark, alluring urban and social landscape; and as part of the exhibition, an entire wall of the 1,000ft gallery has been covered with small canvasses overlaid with a graffiti mural, which will then be divided up as small artworks.
The exhibition runs from Friday 10th July until Friday 31st July 2009.
