Korova Mural: Stuart Allan & John Mackenzie

Apologies for being a little quiet lately. My other, bill paying job has been eating up a lot of my time, as well as taking some down time over the Easter break. There's lots of new content to come on the site this week though (most of the main galleries have been updated already).

I did decide, however, on this lovely holiday Monday to pop in and document Korova Bar & Kitchen's latest mural commission, by artists Stuart Allan and John Mackenzie and I'm glad I did.

Stuart and John spent the full day holed up in Korova creating a nautical masterpiece that looks truly incredible with Narwhals fiercely battling a Sharktopus taking up a massive space in the top bar and stairwell.

If you get the chance this week to pop in and check it out then please do. If you can't, have a quick scroll along the images to see the progress to completion.

Also, if you're not familiar with either of their work, please check out -

Stuart Allan - Korova Mural: Completion

It doesn't seem like a week since I last dropped in on Stuart, but pleased I made it today!

Stuart was completing his work on the mural commission at Korova Bar & Kitchen and the final results are amazing!

Congrats to Stuart for all his hard work. It's been a pleasure to document!

Stuart Allan - Korova Mural (Part 2)

Between edits, work and gigs this week, I dropped by to see how Stuart's work was progressing.

Stuart was continuing his commission of a mural at Korova Bar & Kitchen on Tuesday and it's great to see it coming along nicely with another large scale beast and some quirky additional touches.

It should be completed soon and I can't wait to see it!

SPECTRA - Aberdeen's Festival of Light

Last week/weekend was a little bit hectic as I was asked undertake the photographic duties for the second 'SPECTRA' festival of light in Aberdeen's Union Terrace Gardens.

Over 4 nights, I got to see the set up, testing, the opening night and the crowds filling up the gardens to take in light inspired installations from a variety of local and international artists.

It was certainly a rewarding experience and one which I would happily do again. Thanks to the organisers for having the faith in me to document the event in full.

Stuart Allan - Korova Mural (Part 1)

It's been a tremendously busy week this week (lots of edits and content to come as I play catch up) but I took some time out tonight to pop in and document my good friend and amazing artist Stuart Allan's latest work.

Stuart has just started work on a commission of a mural at Korova Bar & Kitchen and it's already looking amazing! Was a pleasure to see the progress and can't wait to see the finished article...
