From giant lamps outside Manchester Piccadilly station to murals in Coca-Cola’s London offices, Acrylize is a collective of creatives who create large scale artworks for a variety of different environments. The scope of the group’s work and remit is hard to define; but in a nutshell it makes art installations – sometimes decorative, sometimes functional, typically thought-provoking and always exquisitely crafted.
The studio was founded in 2003 by artist James Burke and Paul Arad, who are now Creative Director and Managing Director respectively, with a desire to “lessen art’s dependency on the gallery space”. Since then Acrylicize has moved from Harrow to a hip studio in Shoreditch, grown to a collective of over 20 creatives, opened a second office in Seattle and made some spectacular art which lives in building lobbies, road crossings, sidewalks, gardens, public squares and more.
