Speaking about the honour The Singh Twins said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded an MBE for our work  -  not only because it's a great honour, but because, from the outset, it's been a real struggle to gain acceptance for a traditional and non-European art style within the mainstream.  Last year, our solo exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery represented a significant landmark in this respect and it's a great feeling of achievement to receive additional recognition at such a high level. We hope that this recognition for services to the Indian Miniature Tradition will encourage other artists to remain true to their creative instincts and not succumb to the kind of pressure we felt to conform to the dictates of the Contemporary Art Establishment

The award comes at a particularly important time for us in our current role as one of the five official Ambassadors for our home city of Liverpool's Decade of Health and Wellbeing as we feel that it can only help us to further our aims as artists in this initiative - to promote the importance and value of art and culture to health and wellbeing.”

 SINGH TWINS BECOME AMBASSADORS

The Singh Twins have become ‘one’ of the five celebrity Ambassadors for the Decade of Health and Wellbeing. This Initiative, set up by Liverpool Primary Care Trust, advocates “five simple ways to improve personal wellbeing by making small, achievable lifestyle changes“, called the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing - namely, Be Active, Connect, Keep Learning, Take Notice and Give. The Singh Twins have been chosen to represent the ‘Take Notice’ way throughout the campaign.  They said “it is an honour to work alongside the other Ambassadors in supporting this important initiative. In our role, we will be very much focusing on how taking notice of the heritage on our doorstep and getting involved in art can be an uplifting experience that enhance ones quality of life”. 

The LPCT launched the initiative in 2010 as the 2010 Year of Health and Wellbeing but, due to its success, has now been extended to become the 2020 Decade of Health and Wellbeing.

The Singh Twins’ award winning animation film, ‘The Making of Liverpool’ had its UK Premier public screening at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall on 3rd February 2009. The film was well received by the 1100 or so audience who attended the event.  Look out for more public screenings throughout the year.  Also:






 HOLLYWOOD AWARD FOR ‘THE MAKING OF LIVERPOOL’ ANIMATION

The Singh Twins, have recently returned home from Hollywood with two awards. The first, the ‘Creative Media Award’ for their animation film ‘The Making of Liverpool’. The second, the ‘Heritage Award’, for “outstanding achievement in art”.

Both Awards, were bestowed on the Twins by The Spinning Wheel Film and Art Festival - a three day, red carpet event hosted at the prestigious Writers Guild Theatre in the heart of Beverly Hills. The Gala opening of the festival was a glamorous and colourful affair with the dress code being Maharaja and Maharani themed!

Attending as an invited guest was Kate Amend A.C.E. (editor of two Oscar-winning films and recipient of the International Documentary association’s Outstanding Achievement in Editing award, amongst others) who described ’The Making of Liverpool’ as “brilliant and magical”.

Prior to Hollywood, The Singh Twins attended the screening of ‘The Making of Liverpool’ at the Toronto Spinning Wheel Film Festival, accompanied by Andy Cooper, head of the ‘Sparkle’ animation team that worked on the film. After its screening, Andy wowed the audience with an audio-visual presentation on the making of ’The Making of Liverpool’.  One of the main aims of his presentation was to inspire and encourage any would-be young filmmakers amongst the audience to take up animation as their medium - and his mission was certainly accomplished as several youngsters left the theatre all fired up and excited to have a go. So, well done to Andy!

 SINGH TWINS ANIMATION FEATURED ON THE BBC

The Singh Twins made their own contribution to history on August 18th with the UK Premier Private Preview and Press Launch of their first animation film, titled ‘The Making of Liverpool’, at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology). The film received standing ovations and will now go on to be showcased at film festivals world wide - starting with the Spinning Wheel Film Festivals in Toronto and LA.

[CLICK HERE TO  READ THE DAILY POST ARTICLE ABOUT THE EVENT]








Written, directed and produced by The Singh Twins with the aid of Arts Council England funding, the film - titled, ‘The Making of Liverpool’ - brings 800 years of Liverpool history to life through an animated exploration of one of their well known public commission paintings, ‘Liverpool 800:The Changing Face of Liverpool’ (see below). It celebrates the historical and cultural achievements and changing identity of their home City and is their personal contribution and permanent legacy to its status as European Capital of Culture 2008. 

The project, which is a multi arts collaboration, was inspired by a desire to showcase the Liverpool’s fascinating history and creative talent to global audiences.



The Singh Twins worked closely with Liverpool based Sparkle Media who created the animated sequences and with the well-known, Liverpool born actor, Mark McGann, who has done the narration. The animation also features a new song about Liverpool called ‘City With Wings’ - written, composed and performed by established Wirral based singer songwriter Steve Mason. Although written independently, the song, compliments perfectly, both the Singh Twins’ painting and the poem they wrote which serves as the animation’s narrative. 

The resulting film is a fascinating example of “art in motion”, which crosses over the traditional boundaries between fine art and documentary. Although only 13 minutes, 23 seconds long, the animation has taken over six months to produce! 



 SIKHS IN PRINT EXHIBITION

Curated by The Singh Twins for Liverpool based Asian arts promoters, ‘MILAP fest’, the ‘Sikhs In Print exhibition held at St George’s Hall from April to June 2008, was a great success.

The exhibition was inaugurated on 23rd April by the Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Rev James Jones, live on BBC radio merseyside’s Roger Phillip’s Show as a joint celebration of St George’s Day and Vaisakhi. and was thought to be the first of its kind in the UK -  highlighting images from the The Singh Twins’ personal archive of historic printed images pertaining to the Sikh community and its ongoing connection with British history. 



Amongst the several distinguished guests to visit ‘Sikhs In Print’ was the former President of India, Dr APJ  Abdul Kalam who was in Liverpool to attend as key not speaker at the ‘Big Hope Global Youth Congress’ held at Hope University at which The Singh Twins also presented a talk on their work.

 MAJOR COMMISSIONS FOR LIVERPOOL CAPITAL OF CULTURE
 
In 2007 The Singh Twins were awarded two major public commissions by their home City of Liverpool:

1) ’Liverpool 800:The Changing Face of Liverpool’:
Celebrating the 800th anniversary of Liverpool in 2007, the first commission explores the traditional Liverpool City coat of arms as a visual statement of the city’s formal identity (founded in an industrial and merchant past) and reinterprets its symbolism and structure in the light of changing and current perceptions of Liverpool.
This painting has been installed permanently in the new ‘Heritage Centre’ in St Georges Hall, Liverpool and was ‘unveiled’ during the building’s official re-opening by HRH Prince Charles on St George’s Day, 23rd April 2007.

2) ’Arts Matters:The Pool of Life’

This second commission celebrates Liverpool’s status as European Capital of Culture in 2008 and reflects the diverse cultural and artistic life of city of Liverpool as a centre of visual arts, dance, music, literature, theatre and film. The painting is on display at Liverpool’s Bluecoat Gallery throughout 2008.

 NEW MEDIA

Marking the start of their long standing ambition to extend the issues explored in their work through the more multi-dimensional medium of film the Singh Twins have produced their first short film titled ‘Nineteen Eighty Four and the via Dolorosa Project’.



The film explores the making and inspiration behind their celebrated painting, ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’, (which depicts the storming of the Golden Temple at Amritsar by Indian Troops in 1984) to present a very personal perspective on what they regard as being one of the most tragic and misrepresented events in modern Sikh history.
The initial idea for the film began when the Twins were invited to take part in a National arts project established by Arts Beyond Belief in which artists from different faiths were invited to explore a Christian tradition of Christ’s suffering known as the Stations of the Cross and to create a short DVD which responded to it from their own perspective.
Narrated by the Singh Twins, the film reveals how what began in their Catholic Convent school days as a spontaneous response to the attack, became a powerful vehicle for highlighting the universality of political corruption and related issues of human rights abuses. The film reaches its climax with two poems, illustrated by details from the painting, which make parallels between Sikh and non Sikh sentiments surrounding 1984 and the contemplative, Catholic Christian tradition of the Via Dolorosa (Path of Pain) experienced by Jesus from the time of his being condemned to die to the time of his crucifixion. The film thus encourages greater empathy for the Sikhs by presenting their plight from the perspective of a faith much more widely understood within the global community, reinforces the idea that atrocities perpetrated through political ambition and corruption are part of the collective human experience - suggesting in effect that the Sikh story of 1984 is ultimately the story of all peoples, all places and all times.
The film was premiered at the Spinning Wheel Film Festival in Toronto in October 2005 (http://www.swfftoronto.com/previous-festivals/previous-festivals-2005.php ), and went on to screen at the same festival in New York, Orange, California and San Francisco throughout 2006 and 2007. Plans are to continue to submit the film to other mainstream festivals around the world.
