One constant theme evident in Yousif's numerous, paintings and drawings is the suffering of Iraq and the pain of exile. His largest project Black Rain is an ongoing undertaking, which began as a painting project during the build up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It quickly acquired momentum and generated much local media coverage. Gradually it evolved into a a series of paintings comprising of multi-and-single media works, ranging from gigantic canvases to small drawings, collages and paintings, all inspired by the horrors of war.

SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY

https://www.societydanceacademy.com/

West London based Society Dance Academy was created by a enthusiastic Individual who is determent to create a society passionate about all aspects of Street & Hip Hop dance by providing educational dance training and opportunities for young people to express their talents.

Erduan Xhaferi and a team of creative Mentors and Choreographers aim is to provide creative platforms for young people to express their talents and give young people from all walks of life an opportunity to be inspired.

​We believe dance can be used as a tool to positively change people’s minds and opinions about each other and to become united within the dance culture. Dance itself is a universal language that everybody understands and can relate too, it removes all barriers between individuals and what they want to communicate, It illustrates the development of human culture. Society Dance Academy firmly believes that if we focus on developing the young generation, creatively and socially, it will have an impact on them and others, for a better future.

Dance creates experiences for young people that will allow them to participate in a range of dance forms and styles. As well as providing them with the experience of performing, confidence and opportunities for leadership roles.

Our vision for our students is to provide them with the highest training and give them opportunities to reach their goals by also inspiring them to carry this movement forward into the future, allowing them to become the next generation of Mentors/dancers, choreographers and teachers that continue to create society with dance. We strive to bring out their creativity and teach them to express themselves through movement, but most importantly we want all students to enjoy this experience.

​Society Dance Academy have the experience and knowledge to stand behind their beliefs, with a history of over 10 years of performing, teaching, theatre productions and TV entertainment.

Winning a high number of awards in dance competitions in the UK and Europe, they have performed at a number of top venues such as all o2 Arena's venues, Olympic Park and Saddler’s Wells. Society Dance has also collaborated with top international artists, TV and brands such as E4, Virgin, Adidas, Dunkin Donuts, T-Pain, Jay Sean, Lil Wayne and many more international artists on a number of music videos and projects.

Jan in Conversation

‘My ethos is fluid, open and colourful. Water flows, so does my abstract art. I am inspired by our amazing ocean, river and coastal landscapes, a quality-loving creative mother and a mathematical engineering fun father. Cornish raised, state-degree-educated, global business wise and South West London living fuse to celebrate my creativity. Painting for me is very freeing, momentary and healthy. Once a piece is finished, I remember a curious happiness from a time well spent.
I often pour water based paints, preferring acrylics for their range of consistency. Gestural brush marks create movement with more solid shapes adding a depth and floating sensation inspired by nature. I like to use companies with a sustainability focus such as St Cuthberts paper mill in Somerset or Fabriano paper mill in Italy. I have a reuse/recycle policy.
Enjoy’.

I’m a sculptor and tattoo artist, very interested in line, form and composition. I’m inspired by mid 20th century artists and a big fan of industrial art. I like working with reliefs to explore boundaries between painting and sculpture. I post my work @charlieking2000 on Instagram!

Stik started painting unofficial, socially conscious murals in his hometown of Hackney, East London in 2001. His simple stick figures wordlessly tell the story of his community and he frequently collaborates with hospitals, charities and homeless organisations. Working from his East London studio, these projects are largely self-funded and he now creates monumental artworks with communities across the world.

My interest is in the play of colour and texture as they revolve around nature and people. I use digital software to re-work sketches, painting and photographic images to explore the play of colour, texture and line that presents itself. It's a multi-layered approach whereby original sketches and photographs may be re-worked, re-painted and then re-worked a number of times till completion of the final image – a process that can take many months. My aim is to delight and surprise the viewer – for them to see and feel an abstraction of the familiar re-presented from a new perspective.
