EXHIBITION | William Johnston – AKA’s, Parallel Personas and Self Portraits

'AKA's, Parallel Personas & Self Portraits'

Framedink Editions is a limited edition screen print shop/store set up by the artist William Johnston in 2005 as an outlet to sell his own print editions and a selection of other artists work from around the world.

In 2010 William Johnston embarked on a body of work that has been 2 years in the making and is now preparing for forthcoming exhibitions.

‘AKA’s, Parallel Personas & Self Portraits’ is a series of work born out of his decision to drop his adopted artistic pseudonym whilst visiting Berlin, a love/hate relationship with Technology and his love for the pondering of our existence and perception of the Universe.

This work looks at/deals with the psychology behind personal identity, online behaviour, communication, security and alter egos, with the narrative of Physics and iconoclasm as a back drop.

'AKA's, Parallel Personas & Self Portraits'

The initial work formed through experimentation with the mathematics of probability as a method to produce his final series of original and unique hand altered screen prints – comprising of 15 screens printed onto a 1000+ pieces of coloured paper in 15 colours and a palette of 15 paint & ink colours, a selection were then hand altered using acrylic paint/oil stick or spray paint…you do the maths! Its safe to say that no 2 pieces are the same!

This work lead to a larger body of accompanying original paintings and installations.

'AKA's, Parallel Personas & Self Portraits'

Trained in Fine Art, Illustration and Graphic Design – this has subsequently enabled him to form unique reference points and extensive creative knowledge which he applies with finesse and inventiveness.

He is an advocate of the Liverpool Art scene and curated the ‘This Is Liverpool’ edition of Creative Review in December 2011.

William Johnston is currently organising exhibitions for Spring/Summer 2013 and is open to offers of representation, exhibitions, interviews, commissions and collaborations.

MUSIC | Jenome – The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP

JENOME – THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF RADIO DOOM EP

The latest offering from Jenome ‘The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP’ is a 4 track EP that Jenome describes as:

“The sewing together of musical history to create sound wormholes within the moment. Built using a combination of space age technology, deleted vibration tools, extreme listening, blindfolded timing, catacomb exploring and various vinyl clusters.”

Jenome is a Producer and DJ based in Liverpool. In 2007 Canteen Records released the track ‘Lost Colours’ on the compilation ‘Welcome to the Canteen’ which featured some of the UK’s finest Hip Hop artists of the last 20 years. Jenome is influenced by Space, Time, Multi Dimensions, Painting, Poetry, Robots, Cats and Music – producing a unique Science Fiction style Boom Bap Hip Hop that is handy for a good bounce or a modicum of pondering on the sofa.

“Jenome samples a lovely mix of dusty old records from ’60s Jazz to Spoken Word, adds his Hip Hop drums and a good measure of space echo to create a sound that makes you want to smoke something!”DJ Format.

The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP is available via name your price here: jenome.bandcamp.com
