Happy memories of a successful residency at South by South West with Dominic Mohan Media and SuperSizeArt’s Morgan Howell in Austin, Texas. Exhibited a new art collection at the Department Of International Trade’s British Music Embassy.
UK pop artist Morgan paints giant 3-D interpretations of 45RPM vinyl singles. Collectors include Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Blur, Neil Diamond, The Stone Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, The Kinks, Jude Law, Fatboy Slim, The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and now many more. Also caught some fascinating debates and keynotes, new tech and excellent new music artists, in particular Yola and Fontaines DC (pictured) plus Sam Fender, Steve Earle, Deerhunter, Celeste, Penelope Isles. Top tech purchase was new state-of-the-art Bose bluetooth sunglasses where music is streamed direct to your ears through the frames..
Fun times with BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, journalist John Robb, The Arts Council England’s Owen Hopkin, UK Music CEO Michael Dugher, Lord David Watts and John Taite from ManMadeMusic.
