Tues 20th Mar: Pop Surreal Life Drawing with AMC
Thanks to our unique working relationship with The Underdog Gallery, Art Model Collective is privileged to theme sessions to coincide with shows by the cream of cutting-edge contemporary art talent, and produce interactive, site-specific sessions that bring the subjects and themes, quite literally, to life. As the current show by Pop Surrealist Michael Forbes has been extended, we are delighted to be able to enter his quirky and bizarrely humorous world of cartoony weirdness, and theme a life drawing session in response to his artwork that will surround us. Our AMC models will be delving into their dressing-up toy-box, pulling out their superhero suits, leotards and Mickey Mouse ears, to bring to life the artist's fun dynamic technicolor universe. Michael’s paintings are an extraordinary visual record of his thoughts and dreams, often journeying into the subconscious. His work shows a magical and playful, dream-like world laced with humour and pop-culture. ''He may be a little bit mental…but in a good way'' - Ricky Gervais 'Surreal, mischievous, wryly sweet... and chockablock with wit and wonder" - Terry Gilliam www.michaelforbes.co.uk --- Hosted by Jason Atomic All levels welcome Admission on the door: £15 (As usual, we welcome other life models who have worked with AMC before to come and draw free of charge) We'll have some free art materials for spontaneously visiting artists, but as always, please bring your favourite tools. Chairs and drawing boards provided, some easels and table spaces available. Please join us for a drink afterwards! We're a friendly bunch of like-minded creatives and enjoy chatting, brainstorming, getting feedback and swapping ideas!
