Pic + Mix are a new series of art exhibitions curated by Intercity for 55dsl. Each show will see a renowned artist selecting and working with a collaborator of their choice; this could be a like-minded contemporary, a fresh new talent, or an artist from a completely different discipline – photography, sculpture, moving image, furniture design, music and more – all are up for grabs.
The first show launches on October 29th, where graphic designer and art director Sanderson Bob will work with blacksmith Sam Sherbone. Sanderson Bob wanted to work with Sam to capture the craft, quality, personality and story that one-off handmade objects possess. As well as a sculpture, there will be a number of prints created for the show inspired by the time Sanderson Bob has spent with Sam in his workshop in Sheffield. The collaboration has given both artists an opportunity to really embrace the project and it promises to produce an uninhibited selection of work.
Studio55 is a working creative space in the heart of London’s bustling media hub, Soho. Situated above the 55DSL store on Newburgh Street, Studio55, formally the upstairs part of the store, recently became a disused space that was crying out for some 55DSL TLC. After working with, collaborating and supporting artists and musicians for the past 15 years and gaining much respect within the media world, 55DSL wanted to create a space that complimented the store and that could be used by creative types looking for somewhere to either work, play or exhibit. 55DSL wanted to provide somewhere inspirational for the brand itself and the artists, which in turn and with a little help from 55DSL, offers support for emerging artists to make their mark in this difficult industry. After much thought, a re-vamp of the space, Tiger Beer on board as sponsors (thank you very much!) and a huge amount of interest from London creatives, press and friends of 55DSL… Studio55 was born!
