Last days of The Shad and Red 127

Punk activities at Design Museum
For the last 18 months or so I've been conducting, as a volunteer  a variety of short tours at the Design Museum, it's been fun and the people there- visitors and staff are friendly and pleasant.

The Design Museum closes this month in it's Shad premises guise ahead of opening at the improved Kensington premises that are being prepared for this Autumn.

I was on my last tours this w/e during their 'Punk retrospective' at the museum and took the opportunity to visit the nearby Anise Gallery, which is a charming little gallery often showing  up and coming artists.

The artist who was featured at the Gallery was Daniel Mullen a Scot  resident in Holland his influences are clearly diverse including Futurism and Mondrian - for me there's something of the 'Op art' of Bridget Riley - the gallery assistant was obviously someone who took an interest in the works too.

Daniel's work here  is actually quite affordable generally Acrylic on Canvas with works starting below £1,000

I'll miss my visits to the Gallery -

Red 127

Apart from the Red feature I love the fact that the lift doors suggest 'Smile'

Sometimes we need to.
