art: the Clayton brothers, for something truly unique.

18 Jun

Their CV states that the brothers draw inspiration from their immediate environment, incorporating local businesses, neighborhood regulars, and snippets of overheard conversations as subjects for their paintings. We’re not sure what sort of conversations happen in California but we sure wish we were party to them, cos that must be one hell of a conversation . . .

art: Ian Davenport brightens up our walk home.

7 Apr

We can often be found taking a casual stroll away from the offices at AP. and dow to Tate Modern on London’s South Bank and one of the highlights on the way is the spectacular work by Ian Davenport in an otherwise grimey and unloved underpass – which got us thinking, just where else might we find his work.  Well look no further because the great striped one (yup, that’s our little nickname for him!) is quite prolific when it comes to painting the world in perfectly uniform bands of vertical colour.

Though what we missed out on from our London experience was the way on much of these works he leaves the stripes to puddle and muddle together at the bottom – now thats special! Enjoy.
