Pixies Minotaur Exhibition and secret gig!

Well last night saw the launch of Minotaur, the Pixies boxset I've been working on with Vaughan Oliver and 7 others since February. There was an exhibition of the artwork as a work in progress. This included the design and art direction of Vaughan and the photography of Simon Larbalestier, both of whom worked on all the five original Pixies albums.

The exhibition also featured a 40 minutes set by the Pixies themselves, which was amazing! The highlight was Kim Deal saying Thank you to Vaughan and his students, and actually mentioned my name! It was great to meet both her and Frank Black before the exhibition as well as Simon Larbalestier, who's photography lined the walls alongside ours.

My work was hung in the exhibition as spreads from the two books featuring in Minotaur. I also spent time with Vaughan last week preparing the artwork for print and composing the large banners. It all came out really well and looked great hung in the space at Village Underground on Great Eastern Street.

More of my own photos to follow but until I can get them from the camera to the screen these from official sources will have to do. Click here to buy Minotaur, or just to see what's included.
