Artist: Rennie Pilgrem

Rennie Pilgrem spent 20 years as an award-winning electronic recording artist releasing albums on Chrysalis Records and running his own underground breakbeat label TCR (Thursday Club Recordings). He also travelled the World as a highly-respected DJ. About 5 year’s ago he switched his focus from the audio to the visual. His main areas of work are photography, painting and printmaking: ranging from traditional methods, like mono-prints, lino and wood, to cutting-edge original digital work.

He paints on wood, for the grain, firmness and texture. He believes in ‘less is more’ and sees no difference between working in the digital domain or the physical. He is increasingly blurring the lines between the two, creating artworks that combine photography, painting and digital techniques. He first submitted work to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2013 and was selected. He has since been short-listed in 2014 and again in 2015. He was also selected for The Other Art Fair (for 130 of the best ‘emerging artists’ in London in April 2015 and again in October 2015.

The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media.
