You tube live: Spandex, Synths and Stadium Rock - Behind the digital canvas
To coincide with this weekend's Ealing Blues Festival', Getty rock photographer Sol N'Jie asks me about about my portraiture, my performer art, my residency at the legendary music venue the Half Moon Putney AND what my digital portraits bring to our Art & Sol collaboration.

Art & Sol in conversation at the Musical Museum
The You Tube premiere is an accompaniment to our Spandex, Synths and Stadium Rock: Back to the '80s exhibition now on at the Musical Museum until 28 August. And it goes out one month on from the rehang of the National Portrait Gallery - where art and photos are also now on show side-by-side.
The exhibition features iconic ‘80s rock and pop musicians - photographed live in concert and reinterpreted through digital portraiture.
Art & Sol unites Getty rock photographer Sol N’Jie, who photographed iconic rock and pop performers in concert throughout the ‘80s and myself, resident artist of the Half Moon Putney, which has been playing live music since 1963.
At the Musical Museum in Brentford with my art
During the course of the premiere you will be able to see my portraits of four musicians who will be playing in this year's Ealing Blues Festival, who I captured in traditional media during my permanent Half Moon Putney residency:
Sol also introduces an opportunity to hear him live at the Musical Museum on the 17th August from 7.30-9pm where he will talk about his amazing experiences managing crowds for some of the biggest rock and pop artists in the world.
