'Culture Label' Website

Just gone online this week is a new site, a boutique shopping destination that brings together products from over 60 culture institutions from the UK and Europe, including The Tate and The Museum of London. The products range from limited edition art all the way to t-shirts and accessories. The site is easy to navigate with different

 ways to find your perfect product, by searching by category, room, theme or price. Strychnin Gallery has its own space on culture label with a selection of artists and art pieces including my chess set, and separately sold limited edition boxed chess figures. Check out the site if independent, interesting or unique is what you are shopping for.

Hi all. 
Well the Edinburgh Fringe Festival kicks off next week. It's now the biggest arts festival in the world with gigs, shows and every type of art event you can imagine running 24/7 for the whole month. To Celebrate I have made these three festival inspired sculptures that will be available at The Red Door Gallery who are conveniently located in the heart of Edinburgh's old town (42 Victoria Street).
The pieces are 1 of 1 hand sculpted with polymer clay, then painted and gloss lacquered, mounted in antique domes. They range in size with the tallest being approximately 18cm. 
These are pretty fun to make so I imagine this is just the beginning.
For inquiries on these pieces go here.
Cheers Seymour!

Hello all, I thought it was about time for a midsummer update from hot Berlin. To start with the 'Midsummer Night’s Madness' group show at Strychnin Gallery went really well. There was so much incredible work on display for the show. The show had a favorable review in national German newspaper Die Welt, and I was also lucky enough to meet up with Frank from the super cool I heart Berlin website to chat about the things I've been creating since living in Berlin. Here is the link if you would like to read the article, iheartberlin review also I highly recommend having a look in at the site anyway if you are interested in what's happening around the city, as its updated daily and always an interesting read. Plans for the next few months is a collection of small sculpture pieces to work with vintage glass domes that I have been relentlessly hunting and gathering from markets and vintage stores around the city. My next print piece will be a 1/1 with what I am hoping will be intricate, detailed drawings that are a continuation of some of the themes I explored in 'Under the Looking Glass'. Also on the list is to make a bit of time to see the sun from somewhere other than behind my studio window. Anyway, thanks for all your support and coming past so regularly to see what's new, all the best for your long summer days (and nights!).
