As musicians, the members of Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) are definite virtuosos in a time when being accomplished artists seemingly means so little. They are inquisitive and never fully satisfied with their own work. They seek to grow and improve every day, regardless of the obstacles or costs involved.

They are a rock band. They are rock stars. They are Avenged Sevenfold.

Go see the work of Allen Jones – Pop Artist

Allen Jones at the TATE

The Allen Jones display- TATE BRITAIN until 10th Feb 2008 – FREE ENTRY

Allen Jones

To celebrate his 70th birthday Tate Britain is presenting a display of Allen Jones’s paintings which sets his most recent multi-part canvases against some of his early 1960s work.

Like other Pop artists of his generation, Jones drew upon popular culture for his imagery. He is best known for controversial depictions of female figures based on the style of 1940s and 1950s fetish magazines. There is also an important technical
side to his work, much of which has been in opposition to the formalist doctrine of abstract painting. His work has become increasingly complex in terms of the space he creates and, since the 1980s, paintings of parties, performers and the theatre
even suggest a narrative. This is especially clear in his latest, multi-part works which are on display until 10 February 2008.

Free Entry – Tate Britain

London SW1P 4RG

From Staines by rail to Vauxhall (850 metres approx.) and Victoria
