"Oi YOU! and Nelson City Framers are bringing a selection of works by the UK’s foremost female street artist, Lucy McLauchlan, to Nelson!

Lucy is represented by Banksy’s former manager Steve Lazarides and Banksy once said of Lucy “She draws like an angry sparrow stuck up a tree” but having seen her in action, we at Oi YOU!, feel that watching her works is more like a Russian ballerina performing Swan Lake.

After headlining in the hugely successful Paradox Street Art Festival in Tauranga, the works made specifically for that show are being made available alongside a bunch of artworks created specifically for Nelson. There will also be limited edition screen-prints available to ensure that there is something to meet all budgets."

This Will Ruin Everything – 10 Years of Recoat

“Recoat is a Scottish, grass-roots arts organisation that specialises in contemporary urban art. This year marks its 10th anniversary, celebrating a decade of exhibitions, mural projects, and education programmes.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, The Lighthouse in Glasgow has invited Recoat to curate the exhibition, ‘This Will Ruin Everything’. The exhibition features forty Scottish and international artists and designers exhibiting a broad range of creative practices, from architecture to digital art to painting. The show will also feature the Lighthouse’s first ever mural, a Recoat Gallery retrospective installation and screenings of films about Recoat’s projects.

‘This Will Ruin Everything’ was a comment directed at Recoat during a mural project. It sums up the debate around public art, its purpose, function and value. 

The exhibition and programme of workshops, panel discussions and screenings aim to encourage dialogue around the distinctions between design and art in contemporary creative practice and celebrates the talented creatives who move between them. Through discussions, screenings and workshops, Recoat aims to challenge audiences on their ideas around function, value, ownership and elitism.

Exhibiting artists include- 44 Flavours, Ade Adesina, Jennifer Argo, Askew, Will Barras, Erin Bradley Scott, Rebecca Davies, Elph, EMA, FiST, Emily Fong, David Galletly, Good Wives and Warriors, Fraser Gray, Lee Ivett, Jamie Johnson, Kidacne, Chris Macfarlane, Mark Lyken, Lucy MacLeod, Radik Liwen, Tommy Mason, Neil McGuire, Lucy McLauchlan, Matt,W.Moore, Matt Mignanelli, Morag Myerscough, Nawer, Tommy Perman, Risotto, Rue Five, ROID MSK, Sheone, Emer Tumulity, Kirsty Whiten, Maya Wild, Susie Wright, Denise Zygadlo.

Centrala Residency - ‘Birmingham By Pass’  by Lucy

Within my ongoing ‘investigation’ into some of Birmingham’s more unapparent areas, ‘Birmingham By Pass’  features new works referencing my time spent along the canals and waterways of Digbeth. Culminating in an installation at the intimate gallery space located just off the canal within Centrala.

Over the next month this residency shall see murals painted along the Grand Union canal. As they appear and disappear the process will be documented and finally presented as a zine. Centrala will host weekly updates as the month progresses, providing an insight into this journey - one which is not revealed when you simply look at the murals or view them online - for it is not the finished mural that is the driving force, but the process of painting and the full absorption of those surroundings. In those hours you witness things often missed when passing by, meet and hear many people’s stories and from up high on the ladder gain new vantage points.

Residency runs from 9th June to 8th July.
Closing event 7th July.
