The Artists LP

Art

People tend to separate art. To me art comes in many forms, not just image, vocal or performance but also in every day work. After all a chef is just another way of saying food artist.
The piece its self is mixed media coated in 24k gold.

The Muhammed Ali effect.

Art

Not only was he an outstanding sports man. He was a hero amongst the people standing for human rights and against political injustice. He used his status, wealth and influence to create a positive change for the people. And this is the second piece I’ve painted with a mixture of his and my lyrics as homage to him.

Lyrics:

“I’ve injured a stone
I’ve murdered a rock
And hospitalized a brick.

I’m so bad I make medicine sick.

I’ve burnt fire
Drowned water
Came out fresh from the fryer.

Joe’s gonna be coming out smoking
But I aint joking
I’ll be picking and poking
Pouring water over his smoking

This might shock and amaze ya
But I’m gonna destroy Joe Frazer

All those people who blinked at the same moment,

They missed it…
It’ll be over before they realize it…”

Talks

TalksYusf Ali Updates

Over the years I had the opportunity to give a few talks about my work.
So far I’ve spoke in Manchester college, Bolton college, Glasgow university and Aberdeen university.
By far the biggest talk I did was at Aberdeen university (top photo) with a crowd of 300 people plus and the Lord Mayer of Aberdeen as an unexpected guest. I admit I did choke in the first 5 minutes after that though the next 40 minutes were smooth.

Brand ManagementYusf Ali Updates

January 2011 I secured a contract with a startup LED company. Starting off as a small team of just 3 people it quickly expanded to 20 plus people and my role of a graphic designer quickly turned to an Art director, managing a team of photographers, printers and web designers I was in charge of its brand identity and consistency making sure everyone knew what they’re doing.
After 2 years of working alongside of the managing directors my work was done my contract had ended.
