'Yo SOB?! Whats with all this beige nonsense?'... Well the truth is, we suck!
It all started way back in 2010 when we tried to be 'cool' and failed....miserably. Oh we went to all the right parties, gigs and exhibitions but it always ended up the same way, the two of us awkwardly huddled in the corner, mumbling to each another and coughing up fur balls.
We gradually retreated back to the safety of our laptops, finding comfort in the shadows of the internet and allowing the artwork to come to the front.
So when searching for a name for this blog we asked ourselves; with all these colourful characters around (cough* hipsters), what then are we? The answer was simple, nothing more than plain-old, boring BEIGE! Couple this with some nifty wordplay involving the classic 90's beat'em up and BOOM, we had ourselves a winner!
So yeah, we're two very ordinary, slipper wearing, tea sipping art lovers who are more than happy to blend into the background ...essentially happy to be residents on the Streets of Beige.
Oh and major big'ups to Mick Minogue for the above SOB portrait.
We spotted a resemblance between Gavin Strange's 'Droplet' toy and the skull in our WOLFMASK designed header. Out came the paints and BOOM, this was the result!
‘ShadoBot’ is a tribute to painter, Mr. Jago and to our favourite game of all time, Shadow of the Colossus. The original toy is a ‘CamoBot’ released by Addict in 2005. On showing this guy to Mr. Jago he very kindly wrote back, 'Man he's a baddass! The best custom I have seen on a Camobot'.
