At the start of the year, when the world was a much calmer and Covid-19 free place, Sinna One took on a temporary art studio to complete a project. Just before the move out date the country went in to lockdown and the future bookings at the studio had to be put on hold. This meant that for the duration of lockdown, Sinna could self isolate and work in the space and used this opportunity to practice portraiture in spray paint and paint some ideas on the walls.

This exclusive mini exhibition is an opportunity to see the spray painted artworks created and get an insight into the working space of an artist.

Brighton Festival Mural 2016 – For the Love of Dogs

Commissions, Community, Events, Festivals, Inspiration, Projects, Walls

Here is an overview of the festival wall in progress. This was a great project to work on and the first time that I have ever painted dog portraits. The project was born after the Brighton Festival team wanted something inspired by this year’s guest director’s love of dogs. American artist, Laurie Anderson performed a concert for dogs during the festival and a competition was run by the festival for dog owners to have pictures of their dog painted. The project took ten days and in that time i received lots of great feedback as well as other dog owners trying to talk me in to adding ‘just one more dog’. You can see the completed mural on Kensington Street, Brighton.

Thanks to Ten of Swords and Rosanna for helping with a couple of the dogs and making the end of the mural come together.  Thanks also to Brighton Festival, Healys for providing the wall, Facelift for the elevation and Graff City for their continuing support and swift paint delivery.

This weekend sees the opening of my first solo exhibition at the Art Schism gallery in Brighton’s North Laine area. The show is a reflection of the cartoon work that I have created in the past 9 years of being in Brighton.

Lost and Found Sinna Flyer

The show, ‘Lost and Found’, is  so called because during my time in Brighton I have discovered myself, made new friends that have influenced me and my work and have guided me in to being able to do what I love doing the most. Creating.

   The show runs from the 7th until the 25th November.

   It has new paintings,  rediscovered images and a selection of prints and postcards.

Bot 1 Rosebot

Tortoise box.

There are so many people out there that paint amazing things and love what they do. I have full respect for those that continue to do what they love even when there is so much hate and disrespect and unwitting hypocrisy thrown their way.

 

This mornings offering is based on a tortoise ping pong table that i painted at Boomtown fair last week ( pics to follow).

 

I wanted to paint a tortoise again and then include a pun. Here’s what I came up with..

Giger’s Alien

Art Schism, Community, Inspiration, Projects, Walls

So once again we are flying through the year and not much is getting updated on this site. But that’s not to say that I haven’t been painting much.

After May I wound it down a little as I had been painting sheep ( on walls and boxes, not painting on sheep!) for Brighton Festival and creating a lot of stencil work. When that was over I wanted to paint something different.

 

Then HR GIGER died and  I decided to paint a tribute on the side of the Art Schism shop in Brighton.

I wouldn’t say that my work is GIGER influenced, but the impact that his art had on me when I was younger was immense. How could it not be. The detail, the surrealism, the sexual explicitness. The Alien film design.

Thus I chose to honour the great man with a rendition of his famous alien. I used  black transparent paints to sketch out and the technique that REQ had taught me to transpose the form on to the wall.

I then layered up the image with greys, blacks and transparent paint. I didn’t plan the image out, but painted the alien first and then decided to add the detail or a notion of the detail on the background.

Here it is finished.

Icons- an art exhibition by Req and Sinna One

Icons poster

Last year Req and myself spent a month painting a large scale mural on the side of the Prince Albert pub. We were asked to paint a series of portraits depicting dead musicians and famous faces as a tribute to the pub landlord’s heroes.

This Friday we revisit this mural and host a show at Art Schism with new portraits on display and prints and postcards of the mural for sale.

The show runs for 2 weeks at Art Schism, but this Friday is the launch and we start at the gallery at 87 Gloucester Rd, Brighton from 5pm. Our good friends at the Darkstar Brewing Company have given us a keg of Hophead to enjoy. We then head to the Prince Albert for a little shindig and to see the short film that Snowstorm media made about the wall.

There will be music and live drawing and maybe even some portraits too.

We shall be at the Albert from just after 8pm and the film is being shown at half 8.

Come and join us. For more info visit the event page on Facebook.
