For the email we’re referring to, we’re certainly glad we did the latter – heralding as it does the opening of a new exhibition from the Astro Black Collective.
The cosmically-monikered bunch of artists, animators, writers and sound designers claim to represent ‘galactic funk and extraterrestrial geometry’, and will be showing the results of these inpsirations in a month-long show at Printhouse Gallery in Dalston, east London.
Among those aligning the planets of their creative forces in the collective are illustrator Emily Evans, JoMo, Victoria Topping and Amy Rhian. The show will display individual pieces on the gallery walls, as well as a collaborative mural on the lovely Dalston Roof Park that sits above the Printhouse.
Evans says, ‘The Collective came about as a result of all knowing each other through music, and our love of record artwork.
‘After regularly bumping into each other at music events and admiring each others work from a-far we decided we would start a collective that revolves around our interests in music , outer space and illustration.’
All the work in the show has been created in the last year, for what the collective promises will be a ‘show stopper of an exhibition that takes you on a wild ride through the celestial plains!’
