Indigo gets up…Before & After

‘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’.

This edition includes three colour ways of ‘Indigo’, with two versions: a ‘Before’ she tags the Mona Lisa and an ‘After’. Opinion was split as to which one we liked best, so we thought we’d leave it to you, in these low edition size series of prints.

Exhibitionist hotel

It has been a bit busy over the last few months to do updates, so this is a blog catch up. The exhibitionist hotel’s Trash city suite opened on the 13th of may, with this inside outside thing going on. Wallpaper and gilt frames on the balcony and trash and flash on the inside.

Trash n’ Cash 13th -29th

Dotmasters_TrashCash_note_combo

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.

trash_neon

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

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.

Made in Chelsea

Had a fun time with the ‘Made in Chelsea’ crew yesterday, the glamourous Sophie HermannVictoria Baker-Harber lent a hand to paint some Dotmaster stuff on the back wall of Graffik gallery, Portobello road. A funny morning, filming the girls painting with Mark Vandelli turning up to critique with his own unique style. The whole thing should be aired sometime in April. During the morning the girls taught me some valuable style tips.

1. Always make sure when painting to have the appropriate footwear.

2. You can get away with any outfit with gorgeous hair.

3. Skinny girls still look skinny in boiler suits…. but don’t like the experience. (full body shots have been with held on the requests of the girls).

Oh yeah …..and we painted something.

So there is a point to finishing the trail, so carry on regardless. Thanks to all who braved the windy weather to take part. more updates as to whos one what to follow.
