Visitors to London’s Truman Brewery will have spotted the presence of a beautifully drawn flock of birds on one wall, the work of illustrator Von. Later this month the birds will migrate to New York to reappear on the wall of another gallery…
This video documents the first part of the project, which Von has titled, appropriately enough, Migration
Von’s work also appears in this month’s Monograph, CR’s subscriber only publication. In it, he reveals more about the Migration project:
“I was kindly invited by the Espeis Gallery [where he had a solo show last year] to exhibit on the billboard they have erected especially to showcase the work of artists and designers they admire. Previous exhibitors include Build, MOMO and WK interact among others.
It is from developing ideas for the NY installation that the project grew into what it is now. Migration will take place in two parts, in two capital cities in two months. A flock of abstracted birds will be installed first on the Truman Brewery, London. In September the birds will reappear in New York flocking towards the billboard on the side of the Espeis Gallery in Williamsburg – the project inheriting the migrational nature of its content.”
