Edinburgh Palette has invited the TMFC to a 3 week residency in their Galleries at St Margaret’s House themed around the collective creation of murals offering the public a new insight into its creative process. It will offer the Edinburgh based art collective a space to create together and with the public through workshops, exhibiting artwork, and to set up a pop up shop.
The TMFC artists have always united their styles and individuality into creating big illustrative, playful murals, often showing colloquial characters with a jovial surrealism in an eclectic style. You may be familiar with the TMFC work after their 24 meter long collective mural in Gallery 1 in January 2016 and their collaboration with Edinburgh Collage Collective in the building later that year, so the Edinburgh Palette sought to invite the collective again.
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

” BESTIAIRE, TOTEMS & AUTRES CHIMÈRES ” is an artistic project, in a continuum form, intended to develop itself towards other horizons, with the help and company of others .
Incarnated for the first time last year at L’aiguillage, an art gallery in Paris, and then this summer at L’orangerie du Senat in the Luxembourg garden, the project is meant to blossom through its evolution brought by time and with the contribution of other artists, other countries and cultures, and other iconography, intended to enrich the original theme link to bestiality. Contributing to all the possible hybridisation, following the example of chimeras by which the project got inspired by.
