Previews: ‘Rewire’ @ Gamma Transport Division (Edinburgh)

Art and music have long enjoyed a reciprocal relationship. Take the album cover for example. For years, musicians have found or commissioned visual artists to portray an aesthetic that resonates with the contents of the sleeve resulting in a complete aural and visual package. Gamma Proforma’s forthcoming exhibition and project Rewire flip reverses this process with a collection of artworks produced by visual artists forming the inspiration for a series of sonic interpretations of the artworks by musicians. A perfect fit for Gamma Proforma who […]

Streets: SHEONE – Zion Street Project (Africa)

SHEONE has been a busy little bee since his Paris collabo with Nick Walker. Traveling down to West Africa, the legendary writer worked on the ZION STREET PROJECT created by Wide Open Walls. SHEONE hit up 14 different villages in Gambia and beautified the structures that housed the residents living in the Ballabu Conservation Area. We look forward to seeing more as this project’s momentum continues to grow. Until then, check out the beautiful abstractions in the wild after the jump. Photography by Larry Makasutu.
