Ronnie Scott's, Soho

This is a very tenuous ‘London’ link but the only excuse I could find to include this fantastic clip of Buddy Rich is that it was filmed in Ronnie Scott’s in the very heart of Soho (Ok… was in 1969).

Raqib Shaw - White Cube gallery

The White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey is currently showing a terrific exhibition by Raqib Shaw. The work references old masters from collections at the National Gallery, London and Prado Museum in Madrid and feature self-portraits and the artist’s studio in Peckham. This being a Peckham I would not recognise.

The work is highly detailed using porcupine quills to apply enamel paint onto birch wood panels. The effect is fantastic.

A must see exhibition.
