Located in central Shoreditch just behind Redchurch Street, Studio 7 Shoreditch is the latest addition to the Acrylicize studios. It has launched as a creative hub for artists talks, exhibitions, workshops, live music and experiences that aim to bring together the art & design community of East London. We host only the best in emerging and established talent and provide an unconventional, intimate and exclusive creative space in the heart of Shoreditch. Acrylicize, neighbouring Studio 7, is an award-winning multidisciplinary creative practice, fusing Art and Design to explore identity. Through a blend of Art, Interior Design and Brand Exploration, they create unique and engaging interior experiences from one-off art installations to entire art programs, interior graphics and large scale architectural features. Arcylicize believe that art shouldn’t be confined to the gallery and it should be available for everyone to engage with and enjoy.

- Faces of the Community: LaunchABOUT THE PIECE From the 24th to the 28th of July, six UK artists will energetically paint 16 large-scale portraits ‘plein air’ across Principle Place’s brand new piazza. The new Brookfield development offers a thriving public space, set to stage an exciting programme of events and community driven activities. Faces of the Community expresses the unique vibrancy of Shoreditch as seen through the faces of its residents. Taking inspiration from Victorian silhouettes made popular in the 19th century, these contemporary portraits capture the energy, diversity and colours of Shoreditch. ABOUT THE ARTISTS Mr Cenz Mr Cenz has been scribbling on surfaces since 1988 when he first discovered hip- hop culture and graffiti art. Working from portrait and fashion photographs, he creates abstracted and mysterious compositions. Fusing photorealism, illustration and graffiti, his distinctive style layers intricate and flowing letterforms, shapes and line work in a uniquely rhythmic way that can be seen all over London. Stephen Chappell Stephen Chappell is a self-taught artist. His work bridges a gap between ne art and street art, playfully moving across styles and medium. His latest body of work focuses on portraiture and gurative designs, layered and distorted to create a sense of depth and texture. Chappell enjoys working on a large scale, often on found and reclaimed materials. Isabella Timothy Most comfortable at large scale for its notable impact, Timothy makes use of colour, composition and texture. Fascinated by the contrast and inconsistencies between self perception and perception by others, self-taught Timothy continuously returns to self-portraiture. Her work seeks to capture the vitality and emotions of the people around her in their natural environments and situations. Brook Tate Brook Tate primarily works in oils, with a focus on portraiture and the human subject. She aims to capture the feelings and emotions of her models and depict the stories behind their faces. A self-taught UK based painter, she is attracted to creating bold and powerful work that is highly influenced by traditional painting techniques. Rosie Crawley Crawley’s practice responds to an individual’s personal experience of trauma. Using fragmented imagery, she often leaves parts of her canvas blank representing the distance she believes people feel when looking at the pain of others. Carne Griffiths Working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy and vodka, Griffiths’ fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line. His images explore human, geometric and oral forms, abstracting images and situations encountered in daily life. His work has a dreamlike quality that invites the viewer to escape into an inner realm.1

- Contours, 2017 Contours is a site-specific art installation for Tableau Northedge, Seattle. which explores a overriding theme of discovery. The contours themselves are a nod to an iconic data visualization, while the flowing forms look to create a calm energy that responds directly to the space. At its centre we can identity the summit of Mt Rainier, a celebrated landmark and a natural representation for a world of discovery. The contours evolve into a flowing gesture that engages with the atrium; it is as2
