Here's hoping for a good mix of Oshima's work combined with only the most nuttiest of abstract Sonic based art instillations.

You can never have enough reasons to go to London for Sonic based events, clearly. ;)

So. Some of these pieces made an appearance in an art gallery in Norwich. I managed to snap a couple of pics and grab a special gallery book too.

I've got a small album of pics here: http://m.imgur.com/a/5ccxe

If someone's interested, I can loan them the book for scanning purposes.

Ah, that's why there were paintings of Sonic at that place in Cardiff. I'll have to take some photos.

Yeah. There wasn't much to look at but the book is an absolute blast to go through. Has all the exhibit pieces as well as two pages each written by their respective artist.

I had to ask for the book though. The way the curator said it was they're not available except for gallery copies. She was happy to give me one of the spares they kept though.

I saw some Sonic paintings at an in-store gallery at my local city shopping centre as I was passing by, I was gonna take some photos, but I didn't want the shop owners to get the hump.

I wasn't aware there was a book! I passed through Leamington on the way up North this weekend and took a couple of quick pictures of the ones they had there - I don't have them to hand right now, but it was 6 of the set of 24 including I think all the ones you saw.
