Audio-Visual: Peter Crawley

Not one to rest on his laurels for long, stitch God Peter Crawley has created this fabulous new self-initiated project entitled 'Audio-Visual.' The inspiration for his latest project was born through his fascination of the different song-waves created by particular songs. There are always specific parts of songs, a big crescendo or a drum crash or fade, for example, that are ingrained in so many people he thought it would be interesting to record these moments. Songs like 'Satisfaction' by the Rolling Stones were not necessarily that striking visually due to a generally even and full sound-wave, whereas many of Dylan's acoustic songs have huge peaks and troughs.
After a careful song selection Pete set about capturing the visual information from a series of well-known sixties songs with intriguing results.

Both prints and originals are for sale, for more info just email!

JBR New Signing: Magnani

Magnani currently resides in Lima, Peru but is just as much at home in Madrid or Italy. Having this tri-nationality affords him a diverse exposure to three different cultures. His ability to illustrate such stylish imagery, focusing on detail, typography and composition enables him to use colour sparingly, with maximum impact. With this and a passion for the aesthetic qualities of mechanical details, coupled with an admirable flair for fashion figures, his work is widely admired across the world.
