On Friday 13th February, I attended Colours May Vary to celebrate the launch of Untitled #01.
Taking place every five years, the British Art Show offers a snapshot of contemporary visual art and in 2015 it will open at the Leeds Art Gallery. To celebrate, Leeds City Council are commissioning a series of artists, designers and editors to tell the story of the past, present and future of the visual arts in Leeds across a series of 4 publications.
The first publication was a created by I Like Press, Creative Arthur and Colours May Vary and includes a chat with Peter Mitchell, a look at The Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle and also the public view of the visual arts in Leeds.
It also had the added bonus of including a portrait photograph I captured of Peter.
As part of the publication and launch event, artists Lucas Jubb, Kristyna Baczynski and Jay cover were asked to create a series of illustrations which were have been turned into a piece of collaborative art celebrating the past, present and future of Leeds. People attending were encouraged to be a part of this collaboration by colouring it in with Pen’s provided and refreshments with beers from Tall Boys Beer Market and snacks from Bundobust.
Keep an eye out for the next publication created by Hebe Media in the build up to to the main event in October.
