On November 5th REPRESENT will bring together some of the most exciting portrait artists of the moment at Blackall Studios in Shoreditch.
The main attraction would for me be Swoon.
There's an interview with her on nuart.
Now I'm headed back to MUTATE Britain in Ladbroke Grove.
Last day tomorrow guys!
When I was a kid I lived in the country in Sweden. I was always, and remain still, fascinated by the Nordic mythology.
Here are a few creatures that I loved hearing stories about:
Neck (Näcken) - he plays the violin naked in a stream and seduces people with his music. The human would get blinded by the most beautiful music and walk down in the stream to be with the Neck, but then drown. (Picture by Ernst Josephson)
Huldra (Skogsrå) - she is a beatiful, seductive forest creature but her back is a hollow, rotten tree trunk and she has a tail. If she manages to seduce you you will loose your soul to the devil. To avoid this you have to hold her off by her tail. (Picture by Hikarinet on Photobucket)
Troll (Troll)- they live in the deep, dark forest and can be invicible to the human eye. Some of the trolls are big beasts, but others are small, cute creatures. A mother troll would often change their baby troll with a human baby. If you thought this had happened, you would have to either kill the baby troll or baptize it. (picture by John Bauer)

If you're in London you should really try and make it down to Ladbroke Grove and see
muTATE Britain's show - it is brilliant!
Be sure to see a 'new' animal, and it's not often you visit a gallery where you can smoke!
