saving fundas at seaCalling all land lubbers! A new exhibition coming to London will give you some insight into the lives of people who work at sea.

The Lifeboat: Courage On Our Coasts’ exhibition is a  touring exhibition of photographs taken by one of RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew members, Nigel Millard and features striking photographs which capture the important work of the RNLI- the charity that saves lives at sea.

The exhibition features some of the most striking photographs from the collection and runs in London from 27 January until 10 March. The free-of charge, open air exhibition will be available 24/7 in all weather conditions- just like the life-saving service provided by the RNLI. An accompanying book containing more than 400 iconic images taken by Millard over two years, was released on 30 September 2013. The Lifeboat: Courage On Our Coasts book is written and edited by Huw Lewis-Jones, with the foreword by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, with the RNLI receiving royalties from each book sold.

British graphic artist Patrick Thomas with be exhibiting at the Hang Up Gallery from 1 Feb – 16th March 2014. 

Silkscreened bold heart ideograms combined with found imagery and collage will be a recurring motif throughout the exhibition, which is timed to coincide with Valentines Day.

100 BPM will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in London since 2008 and first time that this collection will be shown publicly.

The majority of works on show will be limited editions and unique pieces created using free-form screen printing and collage, a technique which the artist has been investigating over the past 18 months in Berlin and Barcelona. This work explores the area between the unique artwork and the edition. A selection of prints will be perforated with a laser cutter to simulate arrow shots. Several will have real arrows embedded into the gallery walls.

If you’re looking for some great art to liven up your walls don’t miss this!

Lanky Girl Attends Zaha Hadid Design Gallery Launch Party

Zaha Hadid recently launched a new gallery showcasing her furniture and designs on Goswell Road in Islington. Her opening also coincided with Clerkenwell Design Week. I’ve always been a fan of Zaha Hadid’s work especially her design for the Olympic  aquatic centre.   The party itself was good fun, I mingled with design types and trendy looking architects and Zaha herself made an appearence (I was too shy to ask for a photo). If you are a fan of her work and find yourself in the area I suggest you go and visit as the gallery is now open to the public. Here are some of the things you can expect to see.
