FEATURED ARTIST: Philip Wilcox

In the leadup to this month’s Art Party 41 – The Easter Edition, we asked one of our performers from last Philip Wilcox to answer a few questions and find ourselves intrigued by the answers. By listening to one another’s opinions, artforms, and share in their performance, we gain a better understanding of eachother, what […]

Featured Artist: FLUTTER LYON

Featured Artist : STACKHAT

Three years ago we happened upon an artist so dry in their humour and so sarcastic in their wit that we were certain this person had a prickly demeanour and a general cynicism for all.
