Japan 23

i was invited to collaborate with Taku Hisamura for two shows, one in Tokyo at Gallery Kawamatsu and then a larger installation show at Art Osaka . An initial preview show in Tokyo enabled me to paint the 3 Huts that made up the final show, in an upstairs cupboard (only joking…no really) at Kawamatsu.

Japan like most places around the world is hotter than usual. It hosts a WBT (wet bulb temperature) everyday experience.

After a successful preview in Tokyo, thanks to everyone who attended! We packed the Hut up and moved all three to a new space in Osaka part of the Art Osaka art fair.

To coincide with my trip to Japan, Kawamatsu and i decided to coincide my visit with a release a print. Its a 5 colour silkscreen print on 300gsm Somerset paper printed in the Uk by Bicep press. It’s a smaller than usual indigo image measuring 60 x 23 cm featuring a new Japanese wave wallpaper and a new Dot Master Hokusai’s “The great wave of Kanagawa”

Indigo gets up! Japan edition of 33 plus a few hand finished special editions each one unique in wall paper and colour way.

The works from the show can be found here

Indigo gets up! japan blue wave edition plus a few hand finished unique works .

I was happy to have Osaka in the schedule this trip and it gave me a chance to catch up, paint and drink with some old friends. I have been coming to Osake to paint for over 10 years and always friends have be kind enough to find me spots to paint. Thanks Ken! Thank you Masagon!

I had one spot left to paint, This trip’s image was definitely The Great Wave. I’d painted this on the street in Tokyo with in 4 hours of my arrival.

I’d been in touch with ol Gypsy eyes who actually lives in Kanagawa (where the great wave is set) and nagged him for months before my arrival to find me somewhere to paint it. He’s a great guy and helps visiting street artists find spots. I’d visited his stretch of coast last time we were working together and fallen i love with the series of little bays that Tokyo comes to bathe in summertime, across the water Mount Fuji stands in the clouds. It seemed like the perfect spot for it and wanted to visit and paint.

So i did.

Thank you Japan! I had a wonderful time.

Burgundy Lion Montreal

First trip to Canada

Film by Dan Esteban

Had the chance this week to visit Montreal, i’ve always wanted to go to Canada so i jumped at the chance. Thankfully Louis Jenson from Spraying bricks hooked me up with a local Fred Caron who found me a wall behind an amazing pub The Burgundy Lion. Its a great spot! great food, good beer and plays all the premier league matches live, which is great when your away from home. Any how thanks to all involved and especially Paul Des Baillets. Loved Montreal and will be back.


Trash Bag print

Trash Bag Still Life

Happy to announce the release of the latest print in my Trash Bag series. The Dior edition.

It started as a joke, painting trompe l’oeil piles of trash on city streets in 2006. Over the years, the black refuse sacks were joined with brands that rose and fell in our collective consciousness

…Whatever the name, they all end up in the trash.

This Dior edition Trash Bag will be released on the 24th of October . We’ve printed a few colour ways with plans to release these small editions over the coming 3 months.

Super happy with how this latest trash bag silk screen turned out. It’s a 16 colour silk screen on Somerset satin tub sized 410 gsm paper. 35cm x 50cm . Edition of 40 signed and 42 unsigned.

Both signed and unsigned comes with a sheet of silk screened wrapping paper. The signed edition is accompanied with a hand painted tube.

There will be a launch event at Graffik Gallery on the 24th of October 2022. Join us for a drink and the show “One mans Trash is another’s treasure” Dior edition launch starts at 6.30 pm 284 Portobello Rd, W10 5TE London.

The print will be launched from this site on the same day at 1400 GMT here
