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.

I’ve finally gotten around to uploading pics from the install I did a few weeks back in Palmerston North of the latest Acrylic series of my Welcome Swallows

Its the biggest set I’ve made to date – They were commissioned by a friend to go in her new kitchen, and I wanted them to really stand out against her feature wall.  As it turned out, the set was big enough to flow across two walls… I’m really stoked with the transition of the set from the overcast grey and onto the sunshine yellow.

Loving how they work with their drop shadows!

This set of swallows was cut from a gloss black acrylic, so the birds have a reflective surface if viewed from some angles as seen in a couple of the photos.  I also make these swallows out of mat black acrylic, gloss or mat white acrylic, and repurposed 33” vinyl records.  I can be contacted via my felt shop if you are interested in commissioning a set.

Last week I made up a new acrylic Swallow flock as a commission piece for a friends wall.  She lives out of Wellington and I can’t do the install for a few weeks, so in the meantime they needed a home that will both keep them safe during transport and has the option of display if she so wishes.  So here they are boxed up :

I like the way the drawers pull out like a specimen case, displaying the birds set inside on their pins they way butterflies and beetles used to be.  If they are completely pulled out and placed on their sides they also create individual shadow boxes.  Will post up pics of the whole set after they’re installed – Can’t wait to see them up on the wall!

Makertorium is on at Te Papa today.  My friend Matthew Pettengell kindly asked if i’d put up some of my new perspex swallow flock as a backdrop for his desks

These swallows are a new variation on my vinyl swallow flock i’ve had made through Makerspace… Really pleased with how they’ve turned out, i’m thinking on doing up a couple more sets in white and also in red next.

I’ll be adding them up on my Felt Sales shop in the next day or two, to be sold as installation sets, along with smaller individual swallows made into brooches.

If you are interested in an installation piece, or a commission work along these lines –  Maybe involving a different bird, butterfly or beetle I would love to hear from you! I can be contacted by email at : vincenteknight@gmail.com

Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of decorating a friends office wall with a quick chalk sketch.  Fast forward three months down the track and well, that decorated Pohutukawa tree is a little outdated calendar wise…  So they asked me back in to create them a new scene for the wall.  This is what I came up with :

Initially the idea was to do something to do with the changing of the seasons. However here in New Zealand we don’t really get any of the colour changing trees, or a fall harvest of pumpkins.  So I thought I’d go with a beach scene with Toi Toi and other such grasses in yellows, browns and oranges.  Only, after sketching in the Dunes, it was looking a little too much like the dry farmlands up and down the country thanks to the drought thats been going on… Bit of a problem really.

After a quick colour change to swap the orange out for greens, I was left with a much fresher image – Something to remember our wonderful summer by instead. Personally I would love a beach in my office, if I was going to have to work in one…

Just picture friday drinks, beach picnic styles with a couple of blankets on the floor and maybe a beach umbrella or even a palm tree thrown in for added tropicalness!

And yeah, those are a couple of sneaky easter eggs you see hiding down there at the end. Decided to throw them in, what with easter hitting us right around the corner… Strategically placed so they can be removed once the holiday has passed.
