Record Club

In association with The Vinyl Factory

‘When I die, just keep playing the records.’ Jimi Hendrix

With ‘records I play in my studio,’ this month’s Record Club guest is artist, designer and renaissance woman Julie Verhoeven, whose work embraces drawing, film, installation and fashion in a spirit that owes much to British culture, or indeed punk. ‘Iconic, dreamlike and often provocative illustrations, vibrant use of colour and beauty in the strange and unusual,’ (AnOther) have led to design projects for Louis Vuitton, Versace, Mulberry and her own label Gibo, to animations for Primal Scream, Graham Coxon and electroclash band Fisherspooner. Exhibitions include Riflemaker and the Hayward Gallery, with multiple works recently acquired for The V&A. Julie’s latest collaborations include the House of Voltaire, the Peles Empire and a film for Chloe on ‘the roundness of ‘O’.

‘I would find myself bizarrely immobile if I couldn’t work to music. I line up CDs in preparation for a drawing session, moving through genres to provoke the desired response on paper.’ Julie Verhoeven
