Joining Forces: Solomon Vaughan vs Recom Farmhouse

Graffiti artist Solomon Vaughan teamed up with Christoph Bolten of CGI studio Recom Farmhouse to create the image above, one of six new collaborative works featured in our June issue’s Joining Forces feature…

Inspired by his brother who designs and models furniture, graffiti artist Solomon Vaughan taught himself to use 3D software Rhino in order to turn a paper model of the work shown below into a virtual one. Then he teamed up with Christoph Bolten of CGI studio Recom Farmhouse to create the image above, one of six collaborative works featured in our June issue’s Joining Forces feature…

“When I saw the model, the first thing I thought was that it has to be taken back to the streets,” says Bolten of Recom Farmhouse, who took photos and ‘HDR-spheres’ on the road outside Farmhouse’s Hackney studio and rendered Vaughan’s 3D model into the images to create the result seen at the very top of this post. “Now we plan to continue and refine this concept and turn it into a series with other graffiti artists,” adds Bolten. “Any potential collaborators – please feel free to get in touch with me,” he urges.

Joining Forces features the work of artists James Joyce, Emily Forgot, Seb Lester, Von, Andy Gilmore, and Solomon Vaughan – and also the CGI studios Taylor James, TIGERX, Happy Finish, The 3D Agency, Saddington & Baynes andRecom Farmhouse. An exhibition of the six images created for the project runs until June 30 at Concrete Hermit, 5a Club Row, London E1 6JX.
