I am so excited to finally be able to share a project I’ve been working on for the BBC; Illuminate, a series of 12 mini documentaries about Scottish designers and artists. Together with the most hard-working twenty-something I know, cinematographer Perry Jonsson. I’m so proud of what we achieved, and really enjoyed being involved in project based on supporting local creatives, a subject of true passion for me, and working with a talented friend was the icing on the cake.
Here is the very first episode of BBC The Social: Illuminate, featuring Mark Vice. A talented pop-artist, Glasgow-based Mark Vice translates fashion into paintings complete with embellishments and glitter and everything a fashionista could want.
From Karl Lagerfeld to the Ab-Fab girls, Mark covers popular culture in a wonderfully unique way, using delicate paint splatters and drip art to build an iconic image. His work is available at The Scottish Design Exchange, and you can check out his Instagram here (he also rocks Pinterest).
I hope you have enjoyed this wee video and look forward to the others, which will be coming out weekly on the BBC Social Facebook Page.
