LYNX AFRICA TURNS 18…
So, this eighteenth birthday has led Lynx Africa to centre their celebration around 18 pieces of art from an eclectic range of exciting creatives. Included in their list is our recent LDNER Joe Kessler, whose African mask inspired illustration features a rain forest pattern using the three iconic colours of the Lynx Africa brand.
London pop trio Is Tropical, who have kept us dancing this year with their debut album ‘Im Leaving’ have put together ‘Jamestown Sweat’. Inspired from their time spent in Ghana whilst making a documentary, guitarist Simon Milner captured footage of the town’s prize fighter training on the heavy bag. Using locally sourced instruments Simon composed a track to accompany the footage with traditional Ghanaian vocals capturing the spirit and force of the workout.
Our favourite work from the collection has to be Arran Gregory’s ‘Mind Frame’ which embodies the king of the great plains in a powerful, visually striking 3D sculpture of a Lions skull.
Head over to their site and check out all the artists involved.
Eighteen years on, still going strong!
