Only Love Conquers Hate Collection

This rare one-off collection represents an entire generation of people in the United Kingdom. Music, culture and politics encapsulates the beating heart of Acid House. The biggest subcultural movement to explode on the population since the coming of Punk Rock in the 1970’s. The Only Love Conquers Hate collection is so-called after events staged by the artist in 1989. The series features three unique smiley faces produced by infamous Acid House party promoter and published author Wayne Anthony. As a communicator he uses a variety of mediums to shape his thoughts into reality. Each smiley face is carefully constructed to evoke the passion of the period.

3. Assassination of Youth Culture

Acid House was allowed to bloom and flourish in its early stages. No-one could’ve foretold what might happen next. As the British youth discovered themselves on warehouse dance-floors, the nation’s media prepared to do battle with the emerging new culture. Little did party goers know, they would become public enemy number one. Event promoters are branded Mr Big’s, so called ravers are considered undesirable and the biggest campaign we’d seen since the miners strike was unleashed on the United Kingdom. The government, media and its agencies declared war on youth culture. Over three hundred original newspaper headlines published between 1988 and 1990 are testament to this battle.

1. Frequency of Sound

The frequency of sound is invisible to the naked eye yet its vibrations penetrate our very being. Musical compositions are formed to excite our sensations and arouse an emotional response. Acid House triggered a movement larger than the formation of Punk Rock. A ripple effect that reached shores around the planet. Initiated in Chicago and Detroit by the sound of emerging new music eliciting mass upheaval in the United Kingdom. This artwork remembers the music, recording artists and producers that helped rewire a generation. The ultimate playlist of over three hundred compositions compiled by the artist.

2. Rebirth of a Nation

Awakening a sleeping giant is no small task. If incredibly lucky it occurs once in every generation. Acid House music is a catalyst that brought change to the United Kingdom. It happened at the flick of a light switch. Acid House denotes more than merely a soundtrack to good times. It encompasses the people, companies, parties, locations and DJ’s that reshaped a nation. The artist Wayne Anthony digs deep to visualise an important portrayal of British history between 1988 and 1990. Rebirth of a Nation features over 500 entries compiled by the artist.
