Jim Vision’s Dancers

So, we didn’t realise this was a thing, but apparently it’s World Ballet Day today….Happy (belated) World Ballet Day! In honour of this bizarre worldwide holiday we’ve compiled a few of our favourite shots of dancers in front of Jim Visions walls.

Below are the images from the Breakdown Circus crew at the Trocadero, Christian & Mikaela in Buenos Aires, Justin Reid Instagram grab from shutter in Bushwick NY, Vik Taak shooting Olivia Grace Cowley on Redchurch street & the models for Mei Hui store in Brick lane, Turville street.

In light of these great images, we’d also like to bring attention to 2 great photographers among the bunch that have taken some stunning shots of dancers in front of walls:

Vik Taak who is a London based photographer who has been taking some images of dancer Olivia Grace Cowley in front of a number of pieces including Jim Vision, Mr Cenz & David Walker.

Justin Reid is a Brooklyn based dance photographer who has taken shots of a number of different talents everywhere from Brooklyn bridge to the Botanical gardens.

Take a look at some of their snaps below…

Jim Vision X David Walker on Hewett Street

Last week we saw one of our favourite artists that we hadn’t worked with in a really really long time and it was lovely.

David Walker opened and closed the doors to his solo show ‘A Blank Canvas is a White Flag’ at the Hoxton Gallery with the Lawrence Alkin gallery, (See EOTL post here) and had some spare time on is hands whilst in town, so he head on over to Rockwell House on Hewett Street to paint some fine spots with EndoftheLine’s finest: Jim Vision. Together they created a piece that took on and paired both original styles beautifully. Continuing the pieced-together style thread from his exhibition, Walker sectioned up the wall, underlaying a stunning portrait which was then overlaid with panels of bright colour from Jim Vision. Combining both Vision’s freehand, mark-making style, and Walker’s scratchy blocks of colour, one would think that this piece had the potential to be quite messy. In reality, the results were stunning.

David Walker: A Blank Canvas is a White Flag

Yesterday the wonderful David Walker closed the doors to his solo show at the Hoxton Gallery; A Blank Canvas is a White Flag. Set in the Hoxton Gallery but hosted by the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, the show consisted of new work from the artist. Reminiscent of his signature style, only he takes his usual stunning, colour splatted portraiture and arranges them in sections, each of which displays a change in approach, colour and logic. He says “In turn this enables the viewer to see both the individual and the whole.” Each piece plays with a new process whether thats in medium, presentation, or taking his usual process and extracting elements from his production and displaying them as a new piece. The David Walker trait is strong in the works but takes his style to a new level. Want more information see the Lawrence Alkin site here.
