Ready for signing, embossing and numbering. Amazing work from Mesh as ever. Ready for release Monday evening 8pm from the shop on this site.
I’ve had a thing for Astroboy since exhibiting in Tokyo a few years at Gypsy Eyes Cafe. The recent mural in Croydon only helped to me love him more. So here he is, the latest one of the TOY series i started painting them for Nuart festival in 2008.
Printed at the wonderful Mesh silkscreens on 375 gsm Lambeth cartridge stock
100% cotton rag with a wapping 12 colours it comes as an edition of 50, signed numbered and embossed. The size of the print is 90cm x 35cm and is a partnership print with Attollo art.
I will be releasing this print through this site around the 10th of May, a more definite date to follow.
The print pre release and launch event went well. Thanks to everyone who came to the Seven Dials spotlight festival and bought a print. We are over half way through the edition now with the Fluro pink edition sold out. If you still haven’t got a print you can buy it from Imitate Modern Gallery online here.
‘Indigo gets up…Before’ & ‘…After’ .The latest in the Rude Kids series.The characters in the Rude Kids series are friends and family, all under 12 and simply too nice to ‘flip the bird’ or vandalise your walls. With teenage years looming, those days are just round the corner; for now, these kids are still too sweet and without the angst to convincingly pull it off. The series captures these kids while they’re still just ‘rude kids’.
The three colours are:
Prints will be available from Imitate modern here.

I’m never the best organised person, the next thing is always upon me before i have truly finished the last. Prints and stuff tend to get buried under the new work and certain plan chest drawers are rarely looked in as i rarely have time to open those cans of worms.
But forces have conspired and constant nagging from some quarters have made me go through the lot and has turned up a few surprises. I have put the bulk of what i have found up in the shop on the site. There are odd colour ways that have never seen the light of day. Whole editions that have been forgotten or mislaid as well as some current stock that has, up until now been sold through galleries that i have exhibited at.
I have also put up the remainder of the ‘Crime o fashion’ tees from the last show.
Over the coming months i will dig a little deeper and see what else i’ve overlooked, but thats enough for now.
It’s been a lock down autumn preparing for shows in London this month and Miami the next. Plans for the show started in the spring, and over the last few months i got to know the gallery and area. Its a fun pop art gallery in the centre of Marylebone, I used to work in a sandwich cafe down the road when i first left school many years ago. Since then it’s become a well heeled W1 address, the Chiltern firehouse down the road a hot spot for London’s celebrity nightlife. It’s certainly a different location to the place i used to know.
With that in mind the title Trash n Cash seemed apt. Big bucks, black bags and swearing kids on found objects, neon and real hard cash. A list branded trash bags, backed by damask drapes and a theme of defaced currency very much a show for W1.
The show is open till the 29th of November, there’s a little something for everyone with a limited edition set of tee shirts, modelled below by Miss Sophie Hermann, with print details below

Rude kids 2 colour silk screen Edition of 29 on Arches rives 250gsm paper embossed and signed at £80 available here

I’ve had a close relationship with The Buzzcocks since working with them on their 30th anniversary tour in 2006, creating visuals for their tour and designing the cover for their live album. When they announced that they were releasing a new album, it was a good opportunity to collaborate again and I’ve created the artwork for The Way, released this month.
To celebrate the launch of the album, I used the stencil to create a fine art print on 250grm Reeves off-white paper, with a single silk-screen print. There is a small edition of prints signed by The Buzzcocks, and a run of 76 (the year they started) as a edition of prints signed by me. you can find them in the Shop link in the menu above
My trip to the states meant that i’ve only just signed, numbered and embossed the ‘High Roller’ prints. 50cm x 70 cm, they are a 11 colour silk screen on 375gsm Lambeth Drawing Cartridge paper, an edition of 50 printed by the amazing Mesh in Bristol. They are available from Graffik Gallery for £150. Sorry for the delay, it was tricky print job with so many colours and took a couple of screens more than were first produced to get it looking more like the stenciled version. Thanks for your patience, think the wait was worth it!
