T-Shirts at The Fashion and Textile Museum

The current show at the Fashion and Textile Museum, Bermondsey,  London, is all about the t-shirt, and it is really good.  This museum regularly has unmissable expos for anyone interested in textiles, or fashion, or both!  Or print making. You have to pay to see this excellent show.  The museum also has classes, and talks such as: Refuge Britain: Designers at work,  Thursday 22 February 2018 | 6-8pm.  If I lived in London I would spend a lot of my time there 🙂

 

John Selway

I just managed to get to an expo at the Bay Art centre in Cardiff; work by John Selway (1938-2017)  – mainly recent.  The show included paintings and digital prints and was mainly concerning the Peter Pan story; there were also several older paintings.  My snap doesn’t begin to do justice to this brilliant painting, the show has finished but really deserved to be seen.

In addition to his well-known work as a painter John Selway drew on a (Samsung) tablet, an area I experiment with myself.

Meltdown

This is one of several sketches for a much larger piece, finished about a dozen so far. Now I’m wondering how to mount them.
