Update, Video

I briefly mentioned that Daniel was working on A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman on here a while back, and it’s nice to finally share it. Daniel directed and animated this here ‘Epistle to the New Zealanders’ section of the film.

‘Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as ‘the dead one from Monty Python’, writes and stars in the animated movie of his own life story, A Liar’s Autobiography. He was born, he went to Cambridge and met John Cleese, he smoked a pipe, he became a doctor, he became a Python, he decided he was gay (well, 70/30, according to a survey he did on himself), he got drunk a lot, he stopped being drunk, he made some films, he had some sex (actually, a lot), and moved to Los Angeles. Finally, he was whisked up into space by aliens (although that might have been in a film).

Although Chapman selfishly dropped dead in 1989, he had taken the trouble to record himself reading his book, A Liar’s Autobiography – and those recordings have now ingeniously been used to provide Chapman’s voice for the 3D animated feature of the same name. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam also turn up, playing themselves and other characters, along with a few surprise guests.

Not a documentary, not a Monty Python film, A Liar’s Autobiography is Chapman’s own take on his bizarre life and his search for self-knowledge. Incredible, yes. Surreal, certainly. True? Who knows? At his memorial service, John Cleese called Chapman “a freeloading bastard”. Now, as the film re-unites Chapman with Cleese, Jones, Palin, and Gilliam for the first time in 23 years, he is set to earn a new title – the most prolific corpse since Elvis.’

Attending, Exhibition

Paul Chiappe accurately imitates blurring and tone in his small drawings. The scale seems to morph the children’s faces, as they take on a warped and ghostly appearance. Nice.

Paul’s forthcoming exhibition Series 2012 is at Carslaw, 137 Whitecross Street EC1Y 8JL London. 21 February – 30 March 2013.

Just Seen

Cynthia Nudel‘s Artificial Nature series explores the uneasy tension between the natural and the artificial within a zoo environment. Her photographs show small pockets of controlled flora and fauna coexisting with concrete, metal and glass.

Just Seen

I stumbled on recent St. Martins graduate Vasilis Avramidis‘ paintings at a London art fair a few weeks ago. He works with oil to create surreal imagined worlds adorned with objects that are often referenced from art history.

The relationship between the simple white cloud shapes over the intricate landscapes is really rather nice. Vasilis recently joined The Contemporary London.

Attending, Exhibition, Just Heard

Paul Noble is a wizard with a pencil, it was his work that inspired me to persist with drawing in my final year at university. I’m yet to see his work in the real world, so hearing about his current Welcome To Nobson exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery made me feel slightly giddy. I strongly recommend going if you’re in London, the show is running from November 10 – December 17.
