An exhibition of Lynnie Zulu’s Art on the 21st & 22nd of March 2013

Jungle Fever is a thrilling ride into the wild world of Lynnie Zulu. Her bold tribal graphics – with a jazzy, psychedelic twist – lead us on an expedition into the unknown. Zulu’s spontaneous and fluid style imprints her vivacious personality on all her work. Her connections with Tanzania also enable her to draw from a deep well of African creativity.

On Friday 29th the Attic opened a little later, people dressed down and a different energy was in the air. DJs Stavef and Deux Spin were … Continue reading
