This weekend I'll be hitting the South Yorkshire metropolis of Sheffield with my talented sidekick Nicola McCartney to undertake a public art commission by contemporary project space, Bloc Projects. Nicola and I were awarded the commission of a billboard installation towards the end of last year and we are both very excited to be working under the working moniker, McCartneyVelardi, for Bloc's 2011 programme. We will be going up to Sheffield to document the two billboards of our respective works over the weekend - check out our dedicated page at Bloc Projects for more information about the commission and our collaborative process behind the works.
Visit jonathanvelardi.blogspot.com for more news and images from Bloc and if you want to keep it live, I am now officially tweeting! Follow me at twitter.com/JMVELARDI for updates on the M1, Sheffield's art scene and billboard domination. Have a great weekend everyone!
