The Duke of Lancaster Boat Art by KIWIE
If you’re gonna leave your boat sitting around for over 30 years, you should probably expect it to get tagged. Street artist KIWIE pulled an all-nighter at Llanerch-y-Mor, North Wales to paint two cartoony pirates on “The Duke Of Lancaster”, a ship that has been docked in the harbor since 1979.
My good buddy Jeff over at BOOOOOOOM! is known for (other than his art blog) his immense ability to present exciting community art projects and his latest project is no exception. Teaming up with MTV and Sony Xperia, BOOOOOOOM! is presenting “Made of Imagination”: a community effort to create fascinating, wild and weird homemade instruments. There are some pretty great prizes and and some rather awesome entries already which you can check out and read all about how to enter over on BOOOOOOOM.
On a personal note, this project is particular interesting to me being a musician myself. There were many days of my youth spent dreaming up mystical musical contraptions. It will be cool to see if any of them match those day dreams or expand upon them and as always to see (and hear!) what others dream of.
