Marvin Gaye Chetwynd : Char Nah! Hor

Artists Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Dragan Cichosz and Jedrzej Cichosz use their flat as their canvas, painting, printing and collaging onto the walls. The walls in some rooms are covered entirely with printed photocopies in the style of the arts and crafts movement (William Morris). Whilst other rooms have action painting that travels from one side of the floor across the ceiling, leaving the rest of the space empty. The exhibition continues the tradition of artists such as the COBRA movement and crafts movement, and will demonstrate a different lifestyle based on DIY, low budget, death metal and pure expression.

Char Nah! Hor was part of the Glasgow Open House Art Festival, which ran from the 1st to the 4th May, exhibiting artworks across Glasgow in a variety of venues, from flats to industrial spaces. Glasgow Open House is an artist-led, not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Glasgow School of Art alumna Amalie Silvani-Jones in 2013. It was formed in order to meet the practical needs of the city’s grassroots art community and takes its lead from Glasgow’s already prevalent ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture in relation to visual art and music.
