Miranda Donovan loves walls – the texture, composition and beauty of them, which notably isn’t a mainstream inspiration in producing artwork, or indeed the essence of a piece itself; which makes her work all the more intriguing. Donovan presents her latest exhibition ‘Walls’ at the Outsiders Gallery, where over 20 pieces of her art-come-sculpture pieces are being displayed.
The exhibition shows Donovan’s paintings of walls, which are sometimes interpreted as sculpture due to the sheer size and depth of them. Some pieces are over 10cm deep, giving the impression that this could actually be a segment of wall itself. However these are layers upon layers of paint, resin, foam and plaster which have been expertly composed to create these stunningly realistic pieces of art.
The ‘walls’ have a certain photographic quality because they are so realistic, and because they do capture a moment in time. Weather, pollution and our own intervention ie. graffiti subsequently means that the walls are always changing. One of the pieces is named ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’.
The exhibition comes in succession from Donovan’s previous shows ‘Lost World of Innocence’ and ‘The Home Unleashed’, which both explore the same vision. The Outsiders Gallery is part of Lazerides Ltd, who are influential in the ‘popularisation’ of ‘urban art’. They exhibit throughout the year and are known to make collecting artwork affordable and accessible. Editions and high quality prints are produced in their own studio, and sold online here.
Miranda Donovan: Walls is currently being shown at the Outsiders Gallery from 22nd March until 2oth April.

Mad C impresses us again with this 6 x 14 metre wall dedicated to her love of Jurassic Park. Using a cherry picker she totally transformed the space taking the films artwork to a new level. Quoting Dr. Ian Malcom himself she’s named the mural “Once we are extinct, life will find a way.” She says, “I like my work to tell a story” and whether that is true or not, her artwork definitely tells us that she’s damn talented.
If only we knew where this was…anyone who knows, tell us please!!

EndoftheLine are trying to raise awareness after the mural created for the Darksiders 2 was painted over by Hackney Council. Though we are respectful of the fact that residents do not want wanton vandalism we feel that the council need to consider work done with permission, and also the nature of the artwork as well as the area. It has been a constant struggle to try and get anyone to own up to the responsibility of what is happening which seems to be repeatedly blamed on a small fraction of residents in the area. What is also frustrating is that the council seem to be contradicting their policies on graffiti which states “Hackney Council have no authority to immediately remove graffiti from buildings that we do not own or manage.’ (See Policy here) We have no record of the council speaking to the person(s) that gave us the permission to paint this wall. However, along with business owners, local residents have helped us start a campaign to support and recreate those destroyed artworks at the expense of the council, though it doesn’t lighten our spirits about the lost time and effort that was spent, it is great to know that we have this support. Unfortunately EndoftheLine are not the only ones to be affected by this unlawful takedown; Nychos & Vibes also had their monumental work taken down at The Foundry in Old Street. We would love to have everyones support to back us, if you would like to have your say about the situation please sign our petition here. Many thanks to all that have signed this already!

The Oakley Beyond Reason mural come day 2 was a lot more comfortable then the previous.
So after nearly having our spray cans & camera equipment explode under the scorching heat that was Monday, we decided it’d be best to start a little later Tuesday.
Working in the evening was beautiful; peace and quiet + cool night breeze = great work environment, so we got plenty done; Jim got the panel finished, got the outlines ready for the next day and we even managed to sneek in a little spot of dinner too…pleasant!
Panel de numero dos…
By the way, we’re also putting together a video for this project so watch this space keen readers…

EndoftheLine were asked to recreate a shutter cover for the release of the Nike Hyperdunk+ trainer in conjunction with 2D3D & BlazingStar. The Nike Hyperdunk + is addressing groundbreaking technology within the trainer industry, creating a sports shoe that allows the wearer to track the speed, pressure and height of their movements and then share them via the Hyperdunk + app.
The shutter was paired with a building sized trainer and the results are pretty eye-catching. Be sure to have a look at the shutter down Curtain Rd.
