Inspired by semiotics and symbolism, Renaissance paintings and the surreal landscape workings of artists like Hieronymus Bosch, this new body of work promises to demonstrate “a deeper development of the artist’s visual vocabulary.”

Migrate Art announces ‘Scorched Earth’

The participating artists have created new works using paint pigmented with ash collected by Migrate Art from land scorched by these fires.

disCONNECT – A ‘locked-down’ artist takeover

This was meant to be one great art party where urban artists would have been invited to take over the walls of a London townhouse prior to renovation. Then COVID-19 hit and disCONNECT turned into something even more exciting.

While the London based artists were able to install their works in situ – David Bray moved into one of the bedrooms which has become one of the most poignant responses to experiencing isolation – most of the international contributions had to be coordinated remotely.
