Pic N’ Mix

54 individual works sprayed on 5mm ply, every one different, each one £99 from Graffik gallery 284 portobello rd W10 8TE, LONDON. Artist’s proof show 14th may-23rd of may

Remember when you could fill your bag with assortment of sweets from a row of bins at your local supermarket?

Ours was a Woolworths, it was often a spot where kids honed their shoplifting skills.I suppose since covid they will never return and perhaps a generation will lose a much valued talent.

Over the last 20 years in various shows both in the uk and abroad I’ve often done a pic n mix wall, an assortment of bright A4 ish size works that incorporate loads of small stencils from my odds and sods drawer in the studio. It’s a weird assortment of text, flowers, animals and dead rockstars cut for many one of a kind things, gifts and themed shows.

 As prices rise I have always tried to offer something of a bargain in these little one off works. Bright quirky panels, hand painted originals for a pic n mix price of £99There are 54 of these eye candy pieces to choose from each one a unique work. Sold on a first come first served basis will be available from graffik gallery on the 14th of may (please book a slot for your visit)

Artist’s Proof

An archive of Dotmasters paper works, spanning over a decade of experiments and test sprays. Whether painted to try out ideas for prints or an exploratory working out of colours for new artworks, these paper works form the initial genesis of my well-known prints, canvas and street works.

Painted on fancy french cotton rag art paper, every test sheet is a work of art in it’s own right, from an unseen archive.

Paper is unforgiving: make a mistake and it’s there forever, especially when you’re using spray paint (there is no eraser for that!). Registration for multiple layered works becomes difficult, masking and set up is key to each sheet.

The quality and price of the paper always makes me treat each work with a caution and care that I don’t often feel with other mediums. Always painted for my own eyes and my archive, these works are a personal playground.

For the show ‘Artist’s Proof’, I’ve picked my favourite pieces from my back catalogue. Never before seen or available for sale, these one-off works have evolved from over a decade of work.

Artist’s Proof is my first show for over a year, the show title is a defiant statement that I am still here, still making. Other works in the show are works made in lockdown, experiments with materials and light. 

Lockdown has closed us down, locked us up and, in a large number of cases had us reaching for the bottle.  It’s good to be opening up again.. join us for a socially distanced drink.

Stick em Up “Bunch”

I’ve been working on some new “Stick em Up!” works for a series of upcoming shows, This is by far the most ambitious one to date, 23 stencils and over 40 colours. I started this over a year ago and have been playing with the idea of gaffa taping objects to walls for a couple of years now…Then some loon in Basel Miami, stuck a banana to a wall and sold it for a ridiculous figure, and suddenly everyone was gaffa taping stuff to walls to take the piss. So i shelved the project waiting for the hoo-ha to die down. This is my reply.

Lockdown london Rude Kids show street Studio work

Locked down

Proud to present my lockdown labours in this multi channel broadcast show, event, web thingy. So first was there was Lockdown Magazine, Dot2Dot portraits and a release of the wino boxes now finally some work you can see in the flesh in this site specific Christmas light shop front installation.

In collaboration with Kensington and Chelsea art week as part of their lockdown HIGH STREET WINDOWS. A series of site-specific window installations across Kensington, activating local high streets through imaginative interventions by contemporary artists. 

The small boxes displayed in the windows are experiments in materials and light that were made during lockdown. Boxed-in, we have all tried to see the bright side, and these naughty rude kids lights have been my way of bringing some light with these humorous candid acts of indoor disobedience. The entire building is transformed into a giant, glowing light box, blurring the boundaries between inside and outside.

A full explanation of the show as well as a shop to buy it, can be found here Lockdown show.

Lockdown…The show…(Kinda)

With street art and gallery shows officially cancelled in the 2020 lockdowns, I’m producing an online show. It’s a multi-media mix of website content, online show and a printed limited edition catalogue that includes inserts, free gifts, original work and a new limited sticker edition.

The show was conceived and made in lockdown. All works are experiments with modern materials and utilise modern technologies, electricity and light. Many of them are boxed, locked down, capturing rude kid acts of disobedience, vandalism and joy.


The show will be launched by a series of promotions over the course of a week from the 19th of November, culminating on the 26th with a live broadcast from a secret shop front location in South Kensington, London and online catalogue launch.

It’s all a bit of an experiment a bit like the work i’ve made, but hopefully there is something that catches your eye. I’m really excited about the Magazine it’s been a long time since i’ve made a publication. For this one i am collaborating with long time collaborator Amber Stoddart who designed my first publication D.I.Y Survival 12 years ago.

There will be a chance of commissioning a bespoke original dot to dot by Dot portrait in the magazine as well as lots of extra inserts and exclusive works made just for it.

There’s a lot to look out for this locked down November, stay tuned for updates
