More about Subism, incase you didn’t know:
Founded in 2006 by artist and designer Stuart Boyd, the organisation has come along way from its humble roots in Derby where is began Subism Live with what were referred to as ‘Arty Parties’. Stuart explains: “Since then, Subism Live has brought together some truly world class artists who have contributed to Subism and then benefitted from subsequent association. This exhibition is the culmination of the past four years of hard work and original direction and we hope the public will agree, we’ve come a long way and have a great deal to be proud of”. As well as live events, Subism operates a design agency, Subism Create, and produces large scale murals and commissions. It has also launched its own range of high quality artists’ markers and paints branded as Sub Ink.
Subism has been linked to some impressive projects as of late which include: Managing a book launch for Attic, the world renowned design agency and producing Memories; a collection of work from 144 artists in support of Maggie’s Cancer Charity.
Artists involved in the Subism Live collective range from illustrators and designers, to street and graffiti artists and attendees of Curating Spaces 2010 can expect to see an impressive variety of original styles, textures and colours.
