This week, Enter Gallery is serving up a fun dose of fabulousness courtesy of Brighton legend, Boogaloo Stu. La Vache En Ciel Ouvert, The Cow In Open Sky is a psychedelic fantasy, depicting a methane-powered cow rocketing across the night sky.
In today’s blog, we reveal a little more about the artwork, and chat to Boogs to learn more about the intentions behind the piece.
La Vache En Ciel Ouvert
Though outwardly udderly bonkers, look a little closer and you’ll see that Boogaloo Stu’s artwork is a comment on man’s role in environmental breakdown.
Firstly, Stu’s bovine rocket is cruising above a beautiful landscape of what he terms ‘supernature’ populated by weird and wonderful creatures that must be protected at all costs.
Secondly, the ship is being piloted by a man sat at a control desk nestled in the udder.
Speaking of the piece, Boogs tells us:
"La Vache En Ciel Ouvert is my first new print this year. When making my work, initially I’m always striving to create something aesthetically bold and seductive; but you’ll also find a whimsical observation about the state of our planet. I’m currently creating the diorama version of this print, which may feature alongside eight other new dioramas in my forthcoming exhibition Queer Hearts, a joint exhibition with fellow artist Ladypat."
Come to the Cabaret
When it comes to creativity, Boogs has it by the glittery bucket load. And lucky for us, and everyone else who crosses his path, everything he puts out into the world is pulsating with the same positive energy as his visual artworks.
In the spare moments he has when he’s not creating his gorgeous limited edition prints, you can find him making music, designing clothes (including the sparkly threads seen in these photos), and hosting quizzes, bingo and club nights, including Big Quiffy Bingo and Dynamite Boogaloo.
