'Yo SOB?!….whats with all this beige nonsense?'.....Well, the truth is, we suck!
It all started way back in 2007 when we tried to be 'cool' and failed....miserably. Oh we went to all the right parties, gigs and exhibitions but it always ended up the same way, the two of us awkwardly huddled in the corner, mumbling to one another and coughing up fur balls. The thing was, everyone seemed to look the part. They had their style locked down whereas we, in comparison, just looked ordinary and out of place in amongst all of the trendy art/music folk. We were outcasts who never really managed to fit in.
We gradually retreated back to the safety of our laptops, finding comfort in the shadows of the internet and allowing the artwork to come to the front.
So when searching for a name for this blog it came to us quickly and effortlessly. We asked ourselves; with all these colourful characters around, what then are we? The answer was simple, nothing more than plain-old, boring...beige. Couple this with some nifty wordplay involving the classic 90's beat'em up we grew up playing and DING DING DING - we have ourselves a winner!
And there you have it. We are just two relatively boring, slipper wearing, tea drinking art & music lovers who are more than happy to blend into the background....essentially happy to be residents on the Streets of Beige.
