The Velvet Chapel

“Home of The Velvet Underground”

So what has a small Welsh town in Carmarthenshire got to do with New York, the development of modern music and the world’s most famous Pop artist Andy Warhol?

Well, world-renowned musician John Cale was born and lived in Garnet. As a young man Cale left for America on a musical scholarship and after being introduced to musician Lou Reed and Andy Warhol they co-founded the experimental rock band “The Velvet Underground”. At the time Andy Warhol opened his studio, "The Factory" in New York, and gathered about him a wide range of artists, writers, musicians, and underground celebrities. It became a hive of creativity and produced and inspired some incredible talent, art, film and music.

Jonny Zerox who describes his art as neo classical postmodern schizophrenia claims that a spiritual revelation drew him to purchase the building after John Cale appeared to him in a dream instructing him to, 'Go forth and multiply!' This he seems to have taken quite literally and with no sign of slowing down.

Acquired the building with the intention of establishing a home / Art gallery, and recreating the atmosphere of Andy Warhol’s Factory Zerox is poised to launch his creative lifestyle brand L.S.D., short for Life Saving Distraction’s, an assortment of popart, original paintings, sculptures, furniture and lifestyle products all of which he assures me are completely unnecessary yet essential items for modern day survival.
