The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions offer a big-tent approach to music, filling the large and accessible industrial heritage building with some of the decade’s boldest, most notable indie musicians.

Aeropalmics is a Singaporean artist and multidisciplinary creative best known for her steadfast attention to detail within her pencil and papercut pieces that range from the pleasing to the macabre. She finds inspiration in the everyday, focusing on the nuances of the human condition – birth, growth, emotionality, aspiration, conflict, and mortality – coupled with references to the natural world.

Her work at #AlexBlakeCharlie:

Bearded Moss and Garment Green: Throughout history, serpents traditionally represent creative life forces. As snakes shed their skin to allow for further growth, they are regarded as symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality and healing. Paired with the lovely chrysanthemum, which symbolises longevity and optimism, the two reflect on the cycle of life and death. Inspired by the deep jade-green brand feel of The Alex Blake Charlie Sessions, this drawing celebrates the youth, boldness and creativity of music and art lovers.

Mariyam Shany Ahmed, otherwise known as Manje, is a visual artist and muralist based in Kuala Lumpur. She works primarily using traditional mediums such as acrylics, inks and gold-leaf. While Manje’s works mainly explore the relationships between nature, feminine beauty and fantasy, she is also influenced by cultures and the intricacies in historical elements and anecdotal stories that often inspire the subject matter in her artworks.

Her work at #AlexBlakeCharlie:

Little Wonders: In this psychedelic mural, a feminine figure, representing Mother Earth, reclines in an Arcadia filled with larger-than-life depictions of life’s munificent gifts. These are typically very small wondrous creatures such as flying fish, hummingbirds and rare flora and fauna that are portrayed adrift in a sky canvas of violet, fuchsia and electric blue.
