Stoak'd Re-cycled Part II

A YEAR ON!!! So it's been nearly a year since our last recycled piece hit the Cayman National gallery, the event was for the Big Art Auction where they put on a Sotheby's style Auction event to raise funds for the Gallery. The event is held for a selection of Artists on the island were 50% of the Artwork sold is given to the Cayman National Gallery to help them continue to grow the permanent collection as well as conservation and interpretation work (our school's programme).  So as you have gathered we are back again for the 5th Annual Big Art Auction event.   So I must admit as I'm writing this the member's event has already passed but don't worry you didn't miss...

Re Cycled At Stoak'd

Pop artist Marc Laurenson converts trash to treasure By  Mark Muckenfuss  - July 12, 2018 This Stoak’d portrait was created with Heineken labels and repurposed material. - Photo: Courtesy of Marc Laurenson There is art that is trash and trash that is art. Marc Laurenson wants his work to be seen as the latter.

Getting to Know The Dots

So recently have been hitting the Photoshop hard, which means Pintrest has been hit hard over the last few weeks.  Some of the cool things that I have been looking into are the ACTION style stuff.  These things are awesome, they give you the ability to cut down on work time and get amazing results.
