World-class art framer and fabricator Mark Darbyshire and product designer Steve Cooke ended up in discussion and working with each other towards quality-improvement and problem-solving to technology for artwork authentication, provenance history and property protection.
That’s what led to Tagsmart coming about.
Tagsmart for artwork authentication, provenance history and property protection.
Then, came the addition to this venture of CEO Lawrence Merritt (former PhotoBox, Yahoo!, etc) and support from a dedicated board, so Darbyshire-Cooke branched out and grew, involving leaders from the worlds of security, art conservation, software and materials science.
Tagsmart at London Art Fair 17
Before too much later, the Tagsmart equation got entered by none other than Hercules Fisherman. For those unfamiliar, Hercules Fisherman is a veteran (but never “established” or “formula” — always progressing and innovatory!) independent renaissance polymath of many parts. Multimedia visual artist, exhibition and event originator and presenter, publisher and technologist. All-around and adventurous creator and entrepreneur. While also advisor and consultant in these and other fields. As well as being active and diversifying, Fisherman’s track record has been and still is well covered and documented. Yet another facet is being Tagsmart official brand ambassador.
After promotion, launch event appearances and much positive exposure at London Art Fair in Islington’s Business Design Centre — as one of the sponsors of the art fair attended by over 20,000 visitors — Tagsmart’s next manifestation is during the Chinese New Year of 2017,
The map of China has been said to resemble a chicken. We are about to enter the Year of the Rooster.
Chinese Open this time is named Le Coq, 2017 (Year Of The Rooster), with over 100 artists invited from various practices in art, painting, sculpture, performance and music installations. And curated by Montague Armstrong, in association with The Geoff Leong Foundation, taking place Q-Park, Whitcomb Street, in Central London’s Chinatown District.
With the opening private view this Sunday and a closing party next Sunday, It is open daily from Jan 29th Till 5th of Feb.
Hercules will be live painting — in his distinct and special pop-up atelier style drawing traditional Sumi Painting — using his much-loved Ironing Board support — which he has chosen and pioneered as an ideal adjustable worktop surface on which to create artwork.
Each portraiture made shall have a Rooster-themed 3D Scan — and will be 3d printed on site with scanner and printer courtesy of and sponsored by
3DScanbot — who have already 3d scanned more than 5,000 figures and portraits at many local and international events.
There will be a feedback terminal supplied by DrVoxx a startup originated in Australia who has been collecting voice of customers at public places and international destinations for a few of years. One such location at Brisbane Airports where DrVoxx system gathers and gauge customer satisfactions in real-time with actionable insights on the data collected, it is a first time being applied for collecting visitors feedback in an exhibition context.
Roosters are persuasive, wile and vigilant. Strutting and crowing, they wake up the world.
Installation/light/sound/art/movement/robots/roosters and anti-roosters. Science, construction, art and creation taking place in the deepest floors of an undercity car park beneath Leicester Square.
Roosters are energetic and loud, calling the world to attention. What have we missed? Are we still asleep, dreaming the planet into another dimension?
The 4th Chinese Open is a multimedia arts event which takes place on two levels of this modern multi-storey underground car park
Established by Vanya Balogh and supported by arts patron Geoffrey Leong, it will feature over 100 international creatives and new works in all media including performative live acts and site-specific video and sound installations.
This year’s event is curated by artists Montague Armstrong.
Opening party will take place on Sunday from 12 until 6 pm. Soho will be closed to traffic and we highly recommend a brisk walk from Chinatown to view this exquisite show presented in a unique setting.
