It’s been a few months since I’d been to an exhibition that made me think, reflect upon and decide to write about it. When I read that Sylwia Kowalczyk’s photography exhibition launching at Summerhall was inspired by Lethe, one of 5 rivers of Hades from where people that just died […]

Rob Auton: The Talk Show

Fringe festival is the most welcoming art event of the world. Anyone who wants to can be part of it in any way they want; artists, audience and staff make a big celebrating community, all of them excited, overwhelmed and also tired for different reasons but in the same spirit […]


Maybe it was because that warm Saturday afternoon in May my friend Kleopatra – who is an environmental scientist – and I had just come back from a plant identification excursion, that it felt right to go and visit City Art Centre on the first day of their Robert Callender […]

Ape, Police, Doctor, Soldier, Me

When this painting was made in 1997 I was a child and very fond of mainstream cartoon characters, which I would occasionally try to draw myself, very much unsuccessfully. I do remember having a very strong bond with those figures, considering them as being my friends from a different world, […]

Paradigm is an electronic arts and music festival that brought together many visual and sound artists to present a vibrant, cheerful and interactive event at the Biscuit Factory in Leith, Edinburgh. Being a genuine promoter of the avant-garde, Paradigm staged the innovative works of Alan Brown, Ray Interactive, Hostel Freaks, […]

Bonkers Contemporary

Bonkers Contemporary, founded and curated by Freddie Thomas, is an annual visual art event offering a platform for creative and radical ideas to be shared by new artists of different background and practice.
