Shout it out.

A beautifully constructed art and design website for Irish designers/artists.

Michael Whelan writes:

 “I  have launched an Irish art & design website called Yeller.ie…I think a lot of your readers would be into the stuff we’ll be posting.
We intend on bringing Ireland’s creative community together in one place, not only the artists and contributors, but the readers, galleries, venues and events around the city. As the site grows, Yeller will also act as a platform for the other sides of Dublin’s culture, as well as being an outlet for journalism and satire. From this, we can deliver a site that is both informative as well as entertaining…”





ALL art is quite useless according to Oscar Wilde.

Danleo, Denise Nestor, Maser/Leah Burke (Homebird), Will St. Ledger, will be flogging their wares masters of their arts.

Where? The Copper House Gallery on Thursday, May 1st.

Dee Reddy writes:

“Marriage Equality’s vision is of an Ireland in which same sex couples, our families and our children enjoy equality. The contributing artists, the event sponsors and No Fixed Abode share this vision and hope that through this exhibition we can raise funds for Marriage Equality to continue their amazing work ahead of the referendum on same-sex marriage in 2015.”

Any excuse.

From April 1st until next Monday (April 14th) French artist Abraham Poincheval has been living inside the hollowed out carcass of a bear in the main salon of the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris.

Having kitted out the tiny enclosure with everything he needs to survive, including food, water, activities and a toilet, his goal is to test his physical limits and increase his understanding of animal nature during hibernation.

Visitors are encouraged to interact with Poincheval and there’s also a live feed.



Beauty: a masterclass in subtle digital animation directed by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro who sez:

A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated, (from the renaissance to the symbolism of the late 1800s, through Mannerism, Pastoralism, Romanticism and Neo-classicism) with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance.



The trailer for Sign Painters by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon who, in 2010:

…travelled the United States, documenting the remaining practitioners of this near lost art, but also covering a resurgence of interest in the trade, from both the public and the people holding the purse strings.
Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features the stories of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States. The documentary and book profiles sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco’s New Bohemia Signs and New York’s Colossal Media’s Sky High Murals.

The film also features work from Dublin’s great sign-painter, Kevin Freeney.

Screening at Dublin’s Sugar Club on December 5th from 8pm.

Youtuber SafetyHammer (animators Doug Bayne, Ben Baker and Trudy Cooper) sez:

The Elegant Gentleman’s guide to Knife Fighting is an Australian sketch show- they came to me and said “you love Terry Gilliam, right?”
Yes. Yes I do. I made them a bunch of animated bumpers, these are some of my favourites.
