On Wednesday 11th November, Liquitex, the innovation leader in producing professional quality acrylic colours and products for artists, will be transforming defunct Shoreditch rail station Kachette into a visual playground for We Create Live – an inspiring and sensory-stimulating evening of live art and music. The event will see esteemed artists and illustrators, showcase their artistry and skills in real-time to London’s art enthusiasts.
Building on the success of their most recent events hosted in Bristol, Manchester and Central London, We Create Live will this time bring together well-respected and emerging artists alike from the worlds of illustration, fine art and graffiti. All artists on the night will produce original works using a variety of mediums and Liquitex products; from paint markers, acrylic and spray.
Taking to the canvases include award-winning East London born and bred artist and illustrator Miss Led¸ veteran of the urban art and design community, Mr Jago and modern day Renaissance man of the international Street Art scene, Kid Acne. China Mike, O.Two, Ryan Kai, Will Barras and Florence Blanchard will also be joining the line-up. Aspiring artists are also called on to submit their artwork in a competition for the chance to join the ranks of these talented artists and paint alongside them on the night.
And if that wasn’t enough, DJs will be providing an eclectic soundtrack of House, Disco and Funk. Guests will also take home a vibrant goody bag of Liquitex art supplies as well as an exclusive discount on further supplies from the official event sponsor, CassArt.
