BLEW PIRANHA ARTISTS STAGE SECOND LONDON SHOW
'BIG PAINTINGS' - Pop culture, Johnny Cash, Betty Boo
and road movies
Ashby de la Zouch-born artist Will Crawshaw is holding
his second London show in the space of a year, with
co-artist Luke Bevan, who together formed Blew Piranha,
a multi-disciplinary arts company, to promote their
combined creative talents.
Following the success of their Spring Show entitled
'Colourfield Culture', their second show 'Big Paintings'
is being staged in The Vault at The Foundry public house
in London's EC2 district. The show runs from Tuesday
18 November to Sunday 30 November. There is a 'Non Private
View' on the evening of Saturday 29 November.
The Foundry is a popular venue for artists and musicians,
and generously offers the facility for artists to display
work that has not been previously shown to the public.
The latest exhibition will feature new works from both
artists including a series of 'man in black' studies
of Johnny Cash; singer Gram Parsons; Betty Boo and Jack
Kerouac as well as a number of paintings inspired by
the idea of the 'road movies'.
Will and Luke met on the same art, design and media
course at Portsmouth University where they created their
first collaborative painting. They have been working
together on projects for the past six years, exchanging
ideas and images and working within the same theoretical
fields, each from their own individual aesthetic starting
