Rudies Couple Riding Scooter

Rude Boys and Rude Girls is the name that we use to describe fans of SKA music genre. This term have been used since late 1970s, started by the revival of two-tone SKA.

In 1960s, the first rude boys were associated with the poorer sections of Kingston, Jamaica, where ska, then rocksteady were the most popular forms of music. They dressed in the latest fashions at dancehalls and on the streets. Many of these rude boys started wearing sharp suits, thin ties, and pork pie or Trilby hats; inspired by United States gangster movies, jazz musicians and soul music artists. In that time period, disaffected unemployed Jamaican youths sometimes found temporary employment from sound system operators to disrupt competitors' dances (leading to the term dancehall crasher).

Reverspective - Patrick Hughes

Patrick Hughes is a great artist who creates amazing artworks with optical illusions where you can see the perspective changing while moving across his masterpieces. Born in Birmingham, England in October 1939. His first exhibition was in 1961 and his first reverspective was made in 1964. He has been exhibiting with Angela Flowers Gallery (now Flowers Galleries) since 1970. He has written and collated five books on visual and verbal rhetoric.

Hughes' work is full of irony. By creating a world solidified into perspective he makes pictures that come alive before our eyes. In the myth of the sculptor Pygmalion makes a stone woman, whom Aphrodite brings to life as Galatea. Hughes makes wooden lumps of space and you bring them to life by looking at them. It is sculpted painting, solid space.
