International director and visual artist, Drew John Barnes, returns to his home town of Glasgow to unveil his latest collection of visual art through his I. AM exhibition on 6th September 2018 at Drygate.
The exhibition attempts to explore creatives from various disciplines in order to discover what makes them an individual via a program that will combine performance and projection. The exhibition will feature live performances by musicians Drew has previously collaborated with including Saint PHNX, Love Sick and KVASIR.
Saint PHNX worked with Drew on their single King; one of Drew’s favourite productions. Combining the essence of stadium rock favourites such as Imagine Dragons, Kasabian and Royal Blood, Saint PHNX have amassed 16 million streams on Spotify and graced the stage at Reading, Leeds and V Festival. Drew also worked on several music video’s for Love Sick and, since, the Scottish boy/girl duo have picked up support from the likes of Elton John and BBC radio. Finally, combining elements of house, techno, pop and synth, KVASIR is one of Scotland’s most intriguing up and coming producers - a band Drew worked with on his single Motion - a prefect addition to the I. AM line up.
Now based in New York, Drew John Barnes has worked with major brands like VEVO, MTV Trax and VIACOM as well as artists such as Fatmanscoop, G-Eazy, Ty Dollar $ign, and Texas. The event is being held in conjunction with live event producer Yasmin Paris Love, and will present Drew’s vision by utilising the latest projection mapping and time coding technology.
I. AM runs for one night only at Glasgow’s Drygate on Thursday 6th September 2018. Tickets are available from the Eventbrite website.
