David Shillinglaw's Dance of 1000 Faces Book
Returning from extended travel it's always nice to get back to London to find some packages have been delivered while we were away and are waiting to be opened. One of these surprise packages included a new publication from London based artist David Shillinglaw.
Published by Unicorn Press, Shillinglaw's new book titled The Dance of 1000 Faces celebrates the artwork and the adventures of the artist and features a collection of sketchbook drawings, photography from his recent travels as well as a number of murals he has painted on these trips across Europe and beyond.
“The faces and figures I draw, especially the journal drawings, are mirrors of myself and of those around me. My friends, people walking down the street, or people in the news. The content and forms shifts every day; bending and contorting like reflections in a hall of mirrors. The faces and figures are a portrait of every man and every woman, sexless, ageless, generic, colourless, multi- coloured, two faced, grimacing, gurning and grinning, all in constant flux.”
The book has now been released and is available to order directly from the publisher online or from Amazon here, although the publisher seem to have it on sale at a better price than amazon.
The folks over at Unicorn Press have kindly offered us a copy of David's new book to give away to one of our lucky readers.
