Been involved in a great new space and its premier show. London wall street is a show curated by The Krah hosted at the Artcore’s new Crows nest gallery in Crowthorne road W10 6RP (nearest stop Latimer Road) London. It’s a really great show with old and new faces. Spent the week before the show painting up the front of the space, that can be seen from the West way flyover on your way in to london on the A40 (pics to follow)

The Way

Buzzcocks_TheWay_DigiPack_Front

It’s been a long association with the Buzzers, The Dotmasters and the C6 disaster unit provided the visuals for their 30th tour around the UK. Touring with a band is one of the best reasons for traveling around the country and hitting walls late at night we’ve ever found. This is the second album cover i’ve done, having already supplied the artwork for 30th’s tours subsequent Live album. It’s the Buzzcocks first full release on LP, CD, Download since 2006’s ‘Flat pack Philosophy’. The Album was funded by pledges online and show that the buzzcocks still have their finger on the pulse as far as new tech methods are concerned (I remember Pete Shelley’s ‘Telephone operator’ in 1983 working as a 8 bit video on the ZX Spectrum).  I look forward to getting my hands on a vinyl copy available here. A big thanks to Joe Giacomet for doing all the photography and layout.

I’m working on a silkscreen print at the moment of the cover, hand pulled in a few colour ways that i will release details of through this blog later in the month….so stay tuned.

Studio Visit

I had Ian Cox pop down to the studio recently, it’s always nice hanging out with Ian, we’ve been working on things together since the early days of Nuart.  It’s a busy time in the studio right now with 3 sets of work going to shows in LA, Miami and the stroke art fair in Munich. Ian caught some great construction shots as the afternoon wore on.

Family and friends are putting together a new festival venue down in the docklands that you will hear more and more about during the coming months. They start with a free party that is set to rock!  See you there!

Chrome & Black’s 3rd birthday bash

A great night out at Chrome & Blacks 3rd birthday last night, a motley crew assembled, fore warned that although paint had brought them together, this was not the time and place. A load of familiar faces, even if no one knew eachothers real names. After a raffle and some impromptu break dancing (jeez i haven’t seen anyone pull those moves on a night out for a decade) It was off to the shop for a lock in surrounded by paint and fragrant smoke. Well done Lads! Bloody great night from Londons premier Art suppliers….ahem.

Never seen the complete Belton range  without gaps in the racks….beautiful !

Herakut outdoor at Nuart

Been waiting for this to come out since last summer’s Nuart. One of my favourite pieces from last year’s festival. What didn’t make the cut was the frantic 2 hours were Hera was caught at the top of a very broken down cherry picker,  while an international crew (an Irish man, a English man, a Canadian and an East German….i know it sounds like the start of a playground joke)  tried to follow the Norweigian instructions to rescue her. Of course filmed by the amazing Saft films.

Sick in San Fran

Sickboy and I  hit up a mates flat in central London a couple of weeks ago. Sickie was filming a short film to promote his show in San fran this week at white walls . Nice vid, although there is a blink and you will miss it shot of me painting a wall in the front room. I bet the shows a corker, if your in town post a dream or two in the post boxes he’s dropping round town, or drop by the show bound to be a crazy mix of installation and great paintings.
