Sanja Sakicis currently taking part in the Virgin Media Shorts competition. The film features a prototype currently being produced by Sanja. It is a unique take on a conventional tea set and explores the sexual energy and rarely acknowledged semiotics enjoyed by a man and woman over afternoon tea.

Earlier this month saw a pop up exhibition featuring Shiv and put together by Tilt Collective.The theme was Black and White and this was the second of their exhibitions in which Shiv has taken part. The event took place from the 1st to the 4th July at the Red Gallery on Rivington Street and included BP Mickey by Shiv. 

Jay Jay Burridges solo show "When Superstars Ruled The World" at the Lazarides Gallery in LA from the 12th to 27th August held at an 8000 square foot prime space in the heart of Beverly Hills. The content of the show is a closely guarded secret but we can reveal it will include breakdancing dinosaurs. Jay Jay has brought dinosaurs back to life and twisted them to fit in to our modern lives with an exceptional outcome. His re invention of these classic beasts will definitely make the headlines and become the most talked about show of the year. 


Calligrams features four painters whose work explores contemporary paths of minimalist abstraction. The exhibition brings together UK artists Jane Bustin and 
Estelle Thompson with American painters, Kevin Finklea and Matt Magee. 
Calligrams poses questions about the challenge involved in reinventing non-representational genres. The artists work within traditional parameters of colour, form and support, yet each in individual ways extends them. 
The exhibition runs until 24th July Eagle Gallery, 159 Farringdon Road EC1R. 



David Cranswick will be running a five day workshop from 6th to 10th September entitled The Alchemy Of Paint. Working with the semi precious rocks Malachite, Azurite Cinnabar and Chrysocolla, as well as certain plant colours (Madder roots, Brazil wood and Persian berry), students will discover first hand the miraculous processes by which these raw materials are ground, washed purified and; in some cases, heated and precipitated, and slowly transformed into luminous jewel like pigments.
