Bradley_kerl Regulars / Friday Mixtape Friday Mixtape: Texan artist Bradley Kerl's mix to ease you into a hot humid summer

We’re longtime fans of Texan artist Bradley Kerl. His still lifes are little portals into his own life, gathering bits and bobs together, and there’s always a bunch of calming plants featured too. A couple of weeks ago we published an interview with Parquet Courts’ A.Savage where the artist and musician told us that coincidentally he and Bradley were old pals, they studied painting together and were even a band for a number of years called Teenage Cool Kids.

Paolina-russo-aidan-zamiri-fashion-film-itsnicethat-list Work / Film Irony, sportswear and self-obsession: Paolina Russo and Aidan Zamiri's creative partnership

Fashion designer Paolina Russo and filmmaker Aidan Zamiri are a creative partnership – and real-life couple – who fuse their differing design backgrounds to produce work both individually and collaboratively. The pair both studied at Central Saint Martins (CSM) on BA Fashion Design and BA Graphic Communication Design, respectively and, although studying apparently opposing subjects, it was here that their impressive and intriguing dual practice first originated.

“When I was growing up everyone would read Artforum,Jerry Saltz tells me over the phone. Jerry is a senior art critic at New York Magazine, the winner of this year’s Pulitzer Prize for art criticism and an avid social media user with over a million followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. “I, of course, never understood a single word that was in there. But that was what was cool. So that was what I read.”

Sometimes creativity thrives best under limitations. “I usually get overwhelmed by the variety of colour choices I can make so telling myself I can only use, let’s say, five colours at a time makes my work easier and decisions quicker,” Vilnius-based illustrator Kissi Ussuki tells It’s Nice That. “I don’t really know how to explain my love for pink, it’s just a very uplifting colour and I really loved the pink shade of acrylic paint when I was choosing those first paint bottles at a local store.”

Gorillaz

This week’s Friday Mixtape is by Russel Hobbs, the drummer in Gorrilaz dreamed up by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. In celebration of Gorillaz new album The Now Now being released today, Russel has created It’s Nice That a very rare mix to listen to over the weekend.

According to Russel’s Wikipedia page (yes each Gorillaz member has a Wikipedia page,) just like his bandmates, Russel is not based on a real person, but conceptualised by Damon and Jamie. Acting as “the personification of the hip-hop aspect of Gorillaz music,” Russel represents the numerous rappers the band have collaborated with over the years.

Russel, born in Brooklyn in 1975, is the percussionist in the band. As described on the Gorillaz fan page, Russel’s musical talents developed in a pretty unconventional way. Attending the Xavier School for Young Achievers the musician was “expelled after attacking several students while possessed by a demon”. He then fell into a coma, before being exorcised and then attending Brooklyn High School, a school known for its students’ talents in hip-hop. One evening, many of Russel’s friends were killed in a drive-by shooting, after which their spirits attached to Russel, making him an extremely talented at music.

Well, over to the man himself…

Russel.individual
It’s Nice That: Why have you picked these songs, what do they remind you of or make you feel?

Russel Hobbs: It’s Friday, the weekend’s here what else?

INT: When or where should this mixtape be listened to?

RH: In a Fiat Punto, full volume with at least seven of your mates in the back, on the way to DEVIATION 

INT: What song or album did you listen to as a teenager?

RH: My Perfect Cousin  by The Undertones. Listen to the song and you’ll know what I’m talking about. I had mostly Prince, Altered Images, Bowwowwow and BadBrains posters on my walls. Oh and Mr T.

INT: Can you tell us about your new album?

RH: All I ever wanted was everything, now.

INT: If a film about Gorillaz was to be made, what song would be on the trailer?

RH: Glitter Freeze by Gorillaz. We’re all a little bit lost at sea, aren’t we? And Mark E Smith was a sonic lighthouse for the world.

  • Jonathanv-illustration-it'snicethat-list Work / Illustration Inspired by meditation, Jonathan Vermersch’s illustrations juxtapose harmony and distortion

    Jonathan Vermersch’s illustrations are heavily influenced by his time spent studying animation; they feature elongated limbs in constant movement, as well as miniature scenes easily transferrable into the perfect GIF. Unable to “resist stretching and exaggerating proportions”, Jonathan’s illustrations depict distorted figures in playful interactions. Joking to It’s Nice That that his use of perspective was initially inspired by his height – from “viewing everything from such extreme above angles” – Jonathan reasons that distortion “adds dynamism, movement and drama; it creates rhythm in a way”.

    If you were in London in 2016, you might have ended up lost and disoriented in Peckham’s Chanel-scented Mirror Maze installation. The following summer you probably caught sight of Bregenz Festival’s production of Carmen with its spectacular backdrop of two 82-foot-tall hands, throwing a deck of cards in the air. Fast-forward to this spring, and it’s unlikely you missed The Weeknd’s Coachella stage layout that featured a cracked, 30-foot-high theatrical mask as its centerpiece.

    When he was just 12, Polish-born Herman Rosenblat was rounded up by the Nazi government, along with his three elder brothers, into a series of ghettos and camps, eventually finding himself in Buchenwald concentration camp, Weimar. During his time here, Rosenblat was kept alive by the grace of a young girl, a stranger who came to the camp’s perimeter every day to throw him an apple.

    For London-based illustrator, Dominic Kesterton and Japanese graphic designer Shun Sasaki, the month of June represents the beginning of summer. Spending long days feeling too hot, the creatives wanted to evoke the feeling of keeping cool, visualising the culture of going swimming outdoors, in both Japan and England. Commissioned by Dropbox and It’s Nice That, the pair have combined their personal styles in a typographically illustrated collaborative poster. Created using Dropbox Paper, Shun and Dominic’s poster will be printed and available for free at Nicer Tuesdays June.

  • Viviane-sassen-hot-mirror-photography-itsnicethat-05 Features / Photography An eye for the uncanny: Viviane Sassen on her concurrent exhibition with Lee Miller

    Lee Miller and Viviane Sassen’s work, intentions and verve crossover in ways that may be unexpected considering the close to a century’s gap between their births. Both started out as models: for Sassen, her shift to photography was initially driven by a desire to show a kind of sexuality that was different from that created by the male gaze, “one that’s more fractured and disjointed”; for Miller, it was frustration with the passivity of life in front of the lens. In a manuscript from the archive found and maintained by her son, Antony Penrose, she’s reported by The Guardian as having written: “I looked like an angel, but I was a fiend inside”. For both women, the move from simply being seen, to being the authors of their own image, was soon recast as an opportunity to convey their ideas and experiences, and to show the distortions inherent to subjectivity. In concurrent shows at the Hepworth Wakefield – Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain and Hot Mirror – Miller and Sassen’s affinity with the surreal will take centre stage. Having played model and muse for a number of Surrealists, Lee Miller went on to become an accomplished artist in her own right, and alongside her art practice, she set up a portrait studio in New York and was instrumental in the invention of “solarisation” – a technique that involves the reversal of tone in photographic prints, creating a silvery aura. As a London correspondent for Condé Nast, she worked first as a fashion photographer before moving on to war reportage. Her eye for the uncanny continued to influence her practice – framing photographs of bomb-sites in ways that distorted their form and challenged perceptions of scale and tone – until the playfulness that defined the Surrealist approach no longer seemed appropriate, with the impact of WW2 unravelling as she followed the German retreat through Europe.

Since the start of 2018, Selfridges have concentrated their efforts on defining the meaning of modern luxury, be it through exhibitions, pop-ups or capsule collections by the likes of Michele Lamy and Gareth Pugh. The pursuit continues, this time with the launch of a new magazine to coincide with the unveiling of the third phase of the department store’s accessories hall, which features a new art-filled entrance on Duke Street, as well as the first European outpost of Tokyo’s Aoyama Flower Market. And with art direction by David Lane of Lane & Associates and The Gourmand, and edited by Richard Gray, director of November Creative, they’re pulling out all the stops.

When Lidl opened close to my house at the beginning of the year everything changed. Suddenly luxury foodstuffs available only to people for whom ‘supper’ is a legitimate meal – think potted crab, fancy crackers and walnut oil – were available on my meagre freelancer’s wage. Now I could rock up to a friend’s house proffering a bounty of Highland black pudding, panna cotta or buffalo mozzarella, rather than the cheapest wine in the shop and some mystery meat-flavoured crisps. I had arrived.
