I was commissioned to make a couple of records for Canterbury Museum as part of their RISE street art show that is currently on until March 23

Rise poster infoIts been pretty awesome to know that I’ve got work in the same show as Banksy, Rone, ROA, Anthony Lister and BMD… So when I was creating the records, I wanted to make sure they were on form.  As a result I actually created  a set of nine, so the Museum could pick out the two they thought would work in best for the show.

Anyways, here are the two they selected  :

Of what may come - Gouache, ink and resin on 325gsm Stonehenge paper, vinyl record supportOverspill  - Gouache, ink and resin on 325gsm Stonehenge paper, vinyl record supportRecords with their acompanying covers for RISE

You can see the rest of the set in the post below.

This is the first set of nine records I’ve created for my new series Rise of the Fukushima Monsters 

Rise of the Fukushima Monsters - Set of nine

They’re the next step on from my Fearsome friends series, bringing in new characters and an underlying dialog to do with mutation caused by radioactive waste and what is happening within our oceans at present …And what may come in the future if we don’t just manage to kill everything off first.

Recently, I was given a stack of cast-off scratched, or just really bad House records – Yaya… Talk about score!

So here’s my newest work created using one of said records as the support :

I really wanna do a series of these now… Just got to find the time/ motivation between the moving and sorting out the mess which is my life of late.  They’re about all I’m up to creative wise – A bit of bright, slightly warped colour to take me away from it all.

These are a couple of quick little sketches I painted up a while back now, to get my handback into painting after the massive break I had from it at the start of the year.

They’re kind of a carry on from my Tanager and orchid pieces I started on last year, but in a more relaxed, sketchy style.

I love how bright these little ones are – A splash of rainbow colour.  They make me really happy to look at… I think I need to do more!

It was a friends birthday last week, and nothing in my stockpile of currently finished work seemed quite right.  So I finished off this baby thats been sitting in my half formed to-do stack :

Its one of four I started way back in Melbourne last year, as a carry on from my first colour blocked Sugar Skulls – Which I then got a little sidetracked from when my print class at APW hit.  The aim was to do a more detailed set, but it meant more time involved in the finishing layers. They somehow never got completed.

Well this one gave me the kick I needed to finish off the others :

I love the bright blocks of colour.  Glad I’ve finally got around to getting them done!

I am obsessed with dumplings at the moment.  OBSESSED.  This is a self portrait of me on the best day ever.  Seriously.  Dream come true.  I am a dumpling fiend!

'Dumpling fiend' - Gouache and ink on 245gsm Stonehenge paper, 280 x 385mm(Unframed)

‘Dumpling fiend’ – Gouache and ink on 245gsm Stonehenge paper, 280 x 385mm (Unframed) Private collection

Thanks Melbourne, you’ve totally ruined me – And the prospect of Wgtn with its low par dumpling standards is not a good one.  Well, until I found out about The Dumpling House handcrafted dumplings… Somone say Spinach, Tofu and Bok Choy. How about Japanese six-mushroom?  Hell yeas!  I think I’m gonna have to start hanging out at the City Markets each Sunday… And hey whats that about – Fresh markets only on the Weekend?  Not impressed Wgtn. Not impressed!

Note : Dumpling fiend is currently available NZ$100.00 (Unframed) from Vin’s Nz online Felt shop or by contacting Vin directly at vincenteknight@gmail.com

I like the last Fearsome friends record so much I thought I’d have another go :

This one however, is done using a different method.  Where I painted directly onto the last record, using a base layer of acrylic before adding the gouache and resin topcoat; This one is painted on 245gsm Stonehenge print paper.  I then cut out the image – And all the little blank spaces between the tentacles, and applied it onto the record.  I still need to add the resin to give it a high gloss finish.

This is the method I used when creating my skate decks, trading in the vintage paper for 30″ Vinyl record as support.  Its meant I can add more detail than painting directly onto the record – Which offers no absorption, resulting in bleeding or cracking and flaking with the gouache once dry if you add too many layers.

Will post up the finished result when the poured resin is dry.
