    Snub, Brighton's own "graphic revolution" and street-artist launched his residency at the BozBoz gallery last month.

    Kelela's debut album Take Me Apart is pretty impressive on its own, but Under Cinema, the latest exhibition from artist and filmmaker Wu Tsang, puts the lauded record it in an entirely new light. Watch the artist's project take shape in Tsang's Under Cinema film at Liverpool's Foundation For Art and Creative Technology until February 18. For more information about the free event, click here
