Andy Warhol Exhibition at the MAC Belfast

Andy Warhol Exhibition

I’ve been a big fan of Warhol for a long time now and being in Belfast for the weekend meant that I just had to go and see some of his work displayed at the new MAC centre.

Andy Warhol’s bold styles and pioneering work in the pop art movement has made him one of the most iconic artists in history. Much beloved, and hated, around the world he is most definitely able to draw reactions from people and that’s the whole point of art in the first place.

This is his first exhibition in Northern Island and I hope it certainly wont be his last. It’s running until the 28th April so if you find yourself out in this amazing city then make sure not to miss out. There is a good mix of some of his more well known work and also some of the more obscure pieces but I’ll bet that you’ll be as captivated as I was wandering around.

The MAC was launched last April and is truly a great addition to the city. I’ll definitely be heading back the next time I find myself flying back over the North Channel.

3-D Printing Pen. Yes, this is a thing.

It’s just come to our attention that a new Kickstarter project has smashed its goal for funding to create a 3-D writing pen. Yep, you heard us correctly. Sketching is never going to be the same again.

The 3Doodler as its called works as simply as a pen to allow you to draw anything you want in plastic. From simple objects such as words through to more intricate structures as the Eifell tower. The creators are even looking to create stencils to help you get started with some projects. We thought fun at school had peaked with glue guns.

We’ve been huge fans of the 3-D printing movement that has the potential to disrupt hundreds of industries. For now though, check out some of the photos and the kickstarter video. I for one will be waiting to recreate some epic architecture.
