Films in the attic at Beach Blanket Babylon

How many times have you been to the cinema and just come back a little disappointed? The film was great but that couple next you were talking all the way through, you were sat behind the world’s tallest man and couldn’t see the screen completely, the child behind you was kicking the back of your chair and the incessant crunching was not a great soundtrack for the film…Hopefully your cinema experiences are not all like this, but as Dominic Davies, creator and founder of Backyard Cinema says, “After one too many unfulfilling trips to the cinema, I wanted to create […]

Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis face off, with a typically eye rolling display of testosterone.  A Good Day to Die Hard and Bullet to the Head – both appropriately macho titles – are sure to be as uncomfortable to watch as Willis’s recent One Show interview with Matt Baker and Alex Jones.

De Boer brings Javanese folk art techniques together with contemporary lo-fi aesthetics and highly traditional subject matter to create strikingly modern scenes where he expresses the disjuncture of coming from two quite disparate cultures. Adam explains his work, “The ongoing series of work examines my Eurasian heritage as a way to help me better understand a part of my cultural identity that I have had trouble connecting to throughout my life. Most importantly, it is helping me to know how that identity […]
