Since the start of #lockdown in 2020 I’ve been running a virtual drawing class. After almost 30 months I’m taking a break. This was my last demonstration piece inspired by taking multiple perspectives otherwise known as cubism. I have loved these classes - they were a life saver for many. I’ll be back in September for a new run. #virtualartclasses #zoomartclasses #artclasses #becreative #cubism

This album brings together just some of the amazingly talented artists who’ve joined me on this adventure.

The Last Supper (RA copy) "The Royal Academy of Arts and Google teamed up on a high-resolution scan of a copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper painted by his students. Even though the top part of the original is not depicted, this copy is said to be “the most accurate record of the original” and since the actual mural by Leonardo is in poor shape, this copy is perhaps the best way to see what Leonardo intended. This version was made around the same time as Leonardo made his original. It’s oil paint on canvas, whereas Leonardo’s was painted in tempera and oil on a dry wall — an unusual use of materials — so his has flaked and deteriorated badly. It probably didn’t help that Napoleon used the room where the original hung as a stable during his invasion of Milan."
Hi, I am interested in the drink & draw sessions at Carlton Club, but wondering if they are for people with some experience of drawing, or can complete novices join too? Also, do you do the sessions in blocks, or as a drop in? Thanks!

Did you catch Shiraz Bayjoo’s expressive film in Empire Cinemas at #ArtNight2019? Bayjoo worked with the young people of Mission Grove Primary School to create a story interrogating the myriad experiences of trans-migratory groups today, bringing together their understandings of displacement, loss and courage. Bayjoo asked the children to consider their rights as young people alongside their own experiences of courage and overcoming adversity, placing these against his own experience of flight and resistance from Mauritius. The commission included sculptural costumes inspired and worn by the children and a performance devised in collaboration with Mauritian dramaturg David Furlong. Co-commissioned by Art Night and Iniva - Institute of International Visual Arts, the work with young people has been facilitated through Iniva Creative Learning, which encourages emotional literacy. With thanks to ArtSocial for supporting the workshops, and Kodak Photos by Rachel Cherry #ArtNightLDN is supported by Phillips and is part of Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019
Check out what's happening at Electrik this week... Tonight: Lord Chester Thursday: ArtSocial Matt Worden Exhibition Launch Friday: Magic Island Saturday: Lee Andrews
#ArtNight2019 artist Shiraz Bayjoo often uses photographs and artefacts from public and personal archives in his practice, culminating in a multidisciplinary practice of video, painting, photography and sculpture. Shiraz Bayjoo’s project for #ArtNight2019 will explore real and fictional figures from Mauritian, Madagascan, and British colonial histories. Made in collaboration with young people from Mission Grove Primary School in Walthamstow and filmed on 16mm, the work will be shown at Empire Cinema, Walthamstow. The work is a collaboration with Iniva - Institute of International Visual Arts and supported by ArtSocial. With thanks to Kodak. Pictured: Shiraz Bayjoo, ‘Ile De France’ (2015) HD video still, courtesy of the artist #artnightldn is supported by Phillips & is part of Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019
At #ArtNight2019, Walthamstow’s Empire Cinemas will be the venue for a work by Shiraz Bayjoo, an artist whose practice explores Mauritian cultural identity and that of the wider Indian Ocean region. Bayjoo will film a new work on 16mm in collaboration with young people from Mission Grove Primary School in Walthamstow. This project is a co-commission by Iniva - Institute of International Visual Arts and Art Night. Supported by ArtSocial and with thanks to Kodak. #artnightldn is supported by Phillips & is part of Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019
