Came up through the dirt like a parsnip

The premiere of this film and the events surrounding it are imminent...

My friend Bakul is responsible for offering any budding artists out there the opportunity to have work in the show. Read on...

DIY LONDON SEEN - An exhibition documenting the work of, and inspired by, the artists featured in Aaron Rose's 'Beautiful Losers' will take place in the heart of London this Summer, to mark the film's UK release.

As well as showcasing the work of upcoming British Artists whose work is either inspired by those featured in the film, or who create with a similar work ethic and freedom of spirit, the exhibition will also offer an opportunity to the next generation of like-minded Artists. The exhibition will include Skateboard Art and the organisers have announced that this will be made open to the public through an Open Submissions process.

To submit your work, please email a low-res jpeg of your board art to by midnight on Sunday 2nd August. Applicants must be over 16. All submissions will be considered and if your work has been chosen for inclusion in the exhibition you will be informed by Thursday 6th August. As the exhibition's title suggests and due to its DIY nature, any successful Artists will be responsible for delivering their boards to the exhibition venue in Central London on 13th August and for collecting them at the end of the show, on 6th September.

DIY LONDON SEEN runs from 17th August - 5th September 2009 at Unit 11, The Market, Covent Garden, London WC2 8RF

BEAUTIFUL LOSERS is released by Revolver Entertainment on 7th August and runs exclusively at the ICA until 24th August . The DVD is released on 24th August.
