on our radar
This month at beyond we have been mainly…..
One of our favourite artists at the moment is David Spiller whose eye catching pieces mix pop art with deceptively simple expressionism.
Inspired by everything from Picasso to Dubuffet and Warhol to Disney, Spiller takes an already iconic image and adds another layer of informal freehand texts and drawings over the top.
Often included are evocative lines from his favourite songs by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Pogues and other lyrics like those featured in this brilliant Popeye themed masterpiece Dreams Can Come True, priced £850.

When it comes to quirky drinking dens, Blind Tyger in Leeds is undoubtedly one of the most unique bars in the city. From its opulent interior- and Victorian theme down to its creative cocktails, this treasure of the Northern Quarter is home to classy drinks and skilled mixology.
With its Harry Potter-sounding address of 5 1/2 Cross Belgrave Street, Blind Tyger is a hidden gem tucked above its sister bar Sandinista. Advertised with just a small sign above a door, the cosy hideaway has an eclectic cocktail menu and also hosts cocktail masterclasses.
