"Pimp our Cymbal Room"...the UK Artist Facility recently received a very special customized art commission in the theme of the Istanbul night skyline.
The Zildjian Artist vault, housed at Cato Music Ltd in London, is a very special “Aladdin's cave” facility which holds a vast vault of Zildjian cymbals for Artists to try out. Officially opened in April 2011, the outside artwork puts the finishes touches to the Turkish themed decor of the inside and represents our proud heritage and commitment to continually coming up with new ideas and initiatives to make what we offer our Artists truly special and unique.
Says Tina Clarke – Zildjian International Artist Relations Manager:
"Graffiti-artist Alfa (tag name) turned up with his black backpack of spray-paint canisters and got straight to work creating the design, which took just over five hours to complete. Everyone who watched the work in-progress were amazed at the speed, skill and precision of his work, nothing was mapped out it was all created free-hand, even the Zildjian logo. It's a great statement piece for Zildjian...I hope all the Artists and visitors at Cato Music enjoy and appreciate this one-off work of art."
