Portrait of Shakespeare, London
 
Coinciding with the 400 years since the death of Shakepeare, Jimmy C has painted a portrait of Shakespeare at Bankside in London close to the Rose and Globe theatres where Shakespeare put on many of his plays in London. Shakespeare  lived nearby next to the Blackfriars Bridge and it was during this era that he wrote many of his great plays, including Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth , King Lear and The Tempest. His brother is buried close by in the Southwark Cathedral. The project was supported by Network Rail.

Atomic Rhythm Portrait
Spray paint on canvas, 125x125cm 
 
 
 

Atomised will include a new body of work by the artist painted in his signature aerosol pointillist style. The show explores notions of how the human subject is connected to the material world both at an atomic and macrocosmic level. The circle and the sphere form the central motifs in his work. The show will also feature an interactive real-time self-generating portrait, where visitors to the show can see themselves transformed into the style of a Jimmy C painting.

The real-time portraits are being created in collaboration with digital software artist Stuart Cupit, who has developed a custom application, which uses a Kinect 2 sensor to capture the contours of the subject's face. In real-time, the software uses a complex algorithm to calculate where to place thousands of spray paint dots, reproducing Jimmy's painting style in a fluid, interactive and immersive new piece.

Cosmic Heart window display for Liberty London 
  
 

Liberty Art Fabrics and street artist James Cochran aka Jimmy C have teamed up to create Cosmic Hearts, a colourful, celestial design depicting energised hearts painted in Jimmy C's signature aerosol pointillist style, floating in a dark and mysterious cosmos. 

Central to the design is the heart motif from which individual atoms or spheres of energy seem to burst into the cosmos. Speaking on the design Jimmy C said:

'The heart has become integral to my art in the past year. When I started to paint the hearts on the street I used the term 'street heart' to describe the action and form of a symbol that could communicate a positive message. The collaboration with Liberty is a wonderful way to bring the message and colours of the heart to a new level'. 

To mark the launch of Cosmic Hearts, Jimmy C will be recreating his iconic 'street heart' in the window of Liberty from 1pm on tuesday 16 September.  

Available on tana lawn in three vibrant colourways: pink, lilac and orange, Cosmic Hearts is available exclusively at Liberty and Liberty.co.uk from Tuesday 16 September.

The Riot Series
 
Pure Evil Gallery, 108 Leonard st, London
Oct 10 - 27, 2013   
 

 
 

These paintings were originally inspired by the London riots in 2011. As riot police gathered outside my studio door and helicopters circled overhead, the electrical energy that I felt in the air was translated directly into my canvases. This resulted in a style that I call the 'scribble paintings', made up of layers of energetic lines of coloured spray paint, incorporating images from the riots.

Since the Arab Spring in 2010, riots have continued around the world, and I thought it was the relevant time to show these paintings. A common thread that can be seen in these riots is the individual's resistance and intolerance of government systems or regimes, and of being forced into marginalised economic conditions. These paintings are observations of social unrest and acts of individual defiance.

OLYMPIC FEVER HITS LONDON'S STREET ART SCENE

Usain Bolt immortalised by renowned street artist akaJimmyC

 

 

 

Renowned street/studio artist James Cochran (aka Jimmy C) has created a large scale street-style portrait of Jamaican Olympic hopeful and sports icon, Usain Bolt, on the wall of an East London car park. The portrait is being created in a distinctive 'scribble style' developed by the artist to reflect the inherent energy and vibrancy of Bolt's personality, as well as visually communicate a sense of speed.

Chosen as a sportsman who reflects the multicultural mix of the local residents, as well as one who crosses sporting boundaries, the East-London based artist has several other large scale works in the same area. He has been painting on the street for 20 years, with walls in cities all over the world bearing his signature style.
