‘Elvis’

Pioneer of aerosol X-ray art SHOK-1 has produced a new conceptual painting entitled ‘Elvis’ at the Truman Brewery in London. The piece is rendered entirely in freehand spraypaint and depicts a closeup X-ray of the pelvis of Elvis Presley.

The work examines cultural appropriation; the artist describes it as a kind of imaginary debate between Chuck D, Warhol and himself.  Elvis has been accused of appropriating black culture and popularising it for a mainstream audience. In his time, his sexualised dance moves earned him the nickname ‘Elvis the Pelvis’. Although initially considered shocking and disgusting by the establishment, they also greatly helped his rise to fame.
The piece could be seen as an allegory for the relationship between graffiti and street art - the latter could be viewed as a mainstream, acceptable version of the grimier and less palatable former.

The painting is presented in black on a silver background, referring to the palette of the famous Elvis paintings by Warhol. The silver was said to refer to the ‘silver screen’ of Hollywood and related to Warhol’s obsession with fame. Shok uses the colours to make a wry point : ‘Silver and black are also the backbone of orthodox graffiti, often used in pursuit of fame - ironically the Writers’ own silver screen”.

THIS THURSDAY!!!!
@truevinebrewing
We will be having our first living room event in months after taking a much needed break to recoup from regular life.
We have added more songs to set including a Nine Inch Nails, Elvis, & Coldplay song. We like to keep things interesting ha!
We talk on the hope of living a healthy, healed life, after years of abuse as a child. We use music, storytelling, book readings, and interactions from the audience to convey this message and make it as vulnerably personal as possible. Not recommended for younger audiences due to subject manner (drug/physical/sexual abuse) but that is up to your own discretion. It will be a super special night and I hope to get to share it with as many of you as possible ❤️❤️

"Tutti Frutti" (meaning "all fruit" in Italian) is a song written by Little Richard along with Dorothy LaBostrie that was recorded in 1955 and became his first major hit record. The following year, Elvis Presley cut his own version of the rock n' roll hit at RCA Victor studios in New York on January 31, 1956. Presley's version uses "A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom!" for every verse, finishing the phrase with "bam-boom" instead of "bom-bom." It was released on Presley's RCA debut album, Elvis Presley, in March 1956. The album spent ten weeks at number 1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart in 1956, the first rock and roll album ever to make it to the top of the charts, and the first million-selling album of that genre. In 2003, it was ranked number 56 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. #elvis #elvispresley
