Thrash it out in the creative moshpit @ ART Generator Network*

A series of events for entrepreneurial people working in the creative sector, talking about some of the big issues and bringing them down to earth.

We’re back, we're bold, we're loud and we're proud. ART Generator Network has taken some time out to restock and have four events where we'll thrash some things out - some could say entirely appropriate, as we are hosting these events on K’Rd… Our first event is:

Good luck is hard work
with Otis Frizzell and Qiujing Wong
Good luck is a collision of preparation, timing and connections - that's how a creative career evolves. Hear from Otis Frizzell and Qiujing Wong about their 'lucky' careers.
See below for more about Otis and Q…

Wednesday 13 April, 6.00 to 9.00 pm
@ The Function Room [Club Seven], upstairs at The Family and Naval, cnr Pitt St and K Rd
Come for a drink and some nibbles, a great time, some excellent networking and an inspiring room full of smart, creative people!

ABOUT our marvellous guest speakers

Otis Frizzell is an artistic innovator, style leader, artist, hip-hop performer, radio personality, tattooist and graphic designer. Otis entered public life in his late teens as half of popular hip-hop duo MC OJ and Rhythm Slave. He has performed as Joint Force and Stylee Crew.
Otis has more than 20 years of public graffiti art experience. His first solo exhibition Opto 2000 produced with pop culture manipulator Mike Weston, marked the beginning of an innovative art production and management collaboration that has produced a playful and challenging stream of works, repeatedly setting a benchmark in artistic and technical achievement in the chosen media.
His work can be found at the Parnell Gallery, Lethams Gallery (Herne Bay) the Saatchi and Saatchi offices, Robbie Williams’ London management office IE Music, on KFC packaging, Breast cancer T shirts, Grand Prix Racing Cars, Drag Strips, Playstation Ads, numerous walls and backdrops, TV2 promos, record sleeves of pop artists such as Che Fu and more recently Tiki Taane and Fat Freddys Drop.
His broadcasting partnership with Mark “Slave” Williams carried the duo into a long running Wednesday drive-time radio slot on 95bFM called The Wednesday Special and then to hosting the Base FM breakfast show. The duo’s radio celebrity transferred to television with the award winning Mo’ Show.
In early 2005, Otis abandoned TV celebrity and the offer of a fourth Mo Show series, to focus on art projects working out of The Area studio with Mike Weston as half of the Art Brand, Weston Frizzell. As a solo artist and art collaborator, Otis is now enjoying life as a full time artist, print-maker and illustrator.
