“Make your Mark in New York and you are a made man” Mark Twain
Created to celebrate Tartan Day on the 6th of April 2002, held in New York City. The tartan depicts the colourings of the streets and buildings of the city, with the green section representing Central Park. The two black stripes are to honour the memory of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre, with the blue section recognising the island of Manhattan surrounded by the Hudson & East rivers.
A tale of teen angst and disaffection in London’s East End at the tail end of the 1960s, Barney Platts-Mills debut feature Bronco Bullfrog (1969) is beautifully photographed snapshot of its era.
The mostly improvised drama follows Del (Del Walker) and his mates as he gets into trouble around his native Stratford. He mills about, breaks into places and flirts awkwardly with girls and falls in love. In the same week, troublemaker Jo Saville , alias Bronco Bullfrog, has just got out of borstal and has a job lined up to steal goods from a freight train wagon. He recruits Del, but soon the pair end in bother and the law is fast on their tails.
Platts-Mills’ film is a wonderful social document of Stratford and London’s East End.
Unique Screening to be announced soon
Complimentary Comb from Kent Brushes Established in 1777.
The original 6876 artworks were created using hand made Letterpress techniques in 1995. To replicate these in certain formats has always been a a challenge in terms of colour matching & definition, for instance woven labels.
So for the first time we decided to create from these artworks as close a representation of the original as possible in terms of colour and technique on a garment.
We used two screens to create an overlay & authentic low tech feel to the printing.
