Exhibition Date – 14th November 2008 – 4th January 2009
PAUL NORMANSELL, designer of The KILLERS new album cover ‘Day & Age’ launches his new pieces at London’s newest contemporary art gallery – The Gallery At 94 with It’s Art… Bitch! . Alongside internationally acclaimed duo DORMICE© and newcomer MIKAEL ALACOQUE this November show promises to be the hot place to be this winter.
The Gallery At 94 follows up its launch show with It’s Art… Bitch! a high impact exhibition that sees fashion, culture and art collide in truly innovative and shocking ways. It’s Art… Bitch! features painter Paul Normansell, artistic duo DORMICE© and sculptor Mikael Alacoqué, who will display their exceptional pieces in order to showcase just what the elite rising stars of today have to offer the contemporary art scene.
Paul Normansell’s eclectic body of work experiments with colour and illusion. Combining fashion and pop art influence, his enterprising collections include portraits of Agyness Deyn and Kate Moss. Selected by American rock band The Killers, to create the artwork for their new album ‘Day & Age’ will be released November 25th. Paul has also included album protraits of the band members themselves.
Fusing their dynamic creativity, Heinrich Nicolaus and Sawan Yawnghwe form the artistic duo DORMICE© . Born in Munich and Burma respectively, they live and work in Tuscany and their compelling use of colour and form has been inspiring collectors such as Leonardo DiCaprio over the last decade.
Bursting onto the sculpture scene with an injection of colour and hilarity, Mikael Alacoqué’s gloriously kitsch pieces exhibit the very worst of low culture. From skull-faced Terriers with ice cream cone horns to umbilical-corded babies exploding from Can-can dancing Hitler soldiers, no cultural icon is safe from this provocative sculptor.
It’s Art… Bitch! brings together the explosive talents of these hot artists at The Gallery At 94’s exciting second show, running from 14th November to 4h January 2009.
