Candy Karaoke
Candy Karaoke at the Monster Truck Gallery: Seventy of Ireland’s leading illustrators, artists & designers covering their favourite album covers.

A little late with this one, but some of you will be interested in Candy Karaoke at the Monster Truck Gallery: Seventy of Ireland’s leading illustrators, artists & designers covering their favourite album covers:

In a time where digital music sales have outstripped physical formats like cd or vinyl, thereby shifting the focus from browsing cover art in your local record shop to high budget videos and lever marketing, CandyCollective wanted to celebrate the ever declining craft of sleeve art.

CandyKaraoke’ sees us collaborate for the first, of hopefully many, times with Monster Truck Gallery on Francis Street and RHA to invite over 70 of Ireland’s leading designers, artists, photographers, illustrators, musicians and original creative minds to reimagine their favourite album covers. All artworks produced will be original 1-off 12” square works which will be sold for only 300 euro each.

The show will launch to everyone on Thursday 19th from 7pm and will continue in Monster Truck from Thursday 19th June to Monday 1st July 2008. All are welcome.

This project also sees a major departure for CandyCollective into more original based projects aimed at showcasing amazing creatives to their peers aswell as the general public. This will continue this year with relaunch of their site aswell as other projects yet to be announced.
