April Crichton is a designer based in Glasgow.
Artist Nicolas Party begins with objects that are familiar to us in our daily lives and reworks them in a way that heightens or exaggerates their presence. Coffee pots, cups, cutlery, geometric shapes, plants and portraits – both human and animal – often appear in his work, which includes painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and curatorial projects. Party’s background as a graffiti artist gives his art both a particular sense of modern design culture and an ability to effortlessly manipulate scale and context. Party (born 1980, Switzerland, Lives in Brussels) is represented by The Modern Institute, Glasgow, Gregor Staiger, Zurich and Kaufman Repetto, Milan. Party participated in the New Work Scotland Programme residency at Studio Voltaire in 2011.
