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

group show

It’s chilly sometimes

‘Tools of the Trade’, ‘Stick em Up!’

Sent some works to Denver for this show at Black Book Gallery. Show opens on the 1st of October and is curated by Ben Eine, its one of the first times i’ve exhibited some of these Tools o the Trade in a gallery as well as the first outing of the latest Trash Bag in the series. Chucked a couple of the new prints it in as well. (more news of that later)

Black Book Gallery is pleased to present It’s Chilly Sometimes, a group exhibition featuring ten contemporary artists from around the world, opening October 1st from 7pm-9pm. Included in the exhibition are the artists: A.CE (UK), Alexander Chappell (UK), Charley Peters (UK), Dotmaster (UK), EINE (UK), HUSH (UK), Laura Benetton (UK), Lucie Flynn (UK), Masagon (JPN) and Nasepop (ARG). Working across various styles—from hypnotic patterns and vintage letterforms to hyper-graphic paintings of cyberspace—these artists each explore modes of modern communication through their signature lens.

It’s Chilly Sometimes juxtaposes a range of artistic perspectives, reflecting degrees of contemporary culture that—when viewed together—allude to our collective experience as a society in constant flux. Vintage aesthetics remixed with ultra modern materials, virtual landscapes rendered with painstakingly realistic detail—these artists are confronting old ways of seeing with new ways of making and vice versa.

Some beautiful night shots taken by B Tallman

So i’ve been painting a series of underpasses in Stavanger over the last few years, the latest collaborating with Martyn Reed . The idea is to make the wall look like the Summer show at the RA. The Royal academy Started in 1768 with a the type of show that was in style across Europe hanging the works with much of the walls covered by hundreds of frames these rooms were often called Salons shows.

The difference with this install is that all the easy to reach frames are empty waiting to be filled by passers by. It took 3 and a half days to put up close to a hundred frames. Thankfully i had help from Helga, calum and The J0n. On the last morning people had started to fill the frames with collage , acrylic paint and Pen. Looking forward to how this wall is going to progress, bit nervous too.

Dior trash bag

Just leaving that there. It’s a short film made with Louis Thornton to show how my latest Trash bag stencil is painted. I’ve been working with Louis for the last few films and we are starting to play much more with the medium, and forgetting about the message. This was shot in my studio in a week and edited the next. It’s taken 4 months to get this image to print. Off to the printers now, all 13/14 screens of it. There’s plans to release a gold leaf hand finished edition. as well as some colour ways.

Auction for Eco Moyo Education Center in Kenya

This is the 2nd or 3rd time i have donated to my good friend Martin Whatson’s appeal for works for the Eco Moyo Education Center in Kenya. Its a worthy cause and great auction . Martin has been around for a while and has a great deal of friends in the street based art world.

The piece i’ve donated is one of the most complicated i have made. Its a 40 colour image out of the “Stick em Up!” series called ‘Bunch’ was framed by 2b gallery in Mallorca.

Poo tin post cards

A few weeks ago , Russia invaded Ukraine. Shocked and dismayed with close friends inside the country…Of course my reaction was to make a poxy stencil and paint it somewhere. Well? what else would i do? A close friend Dr D saw my post on instagram and asked if he could use the images for a postcard run he was going to do with The Duck Pond Market which are available online.

Thinking we could raise a little bit more for each card Dr D came up with the idea of making some special editions that could be sold separately to raise more funds. There are 80 hand made postcards at £5. With 7 special collectors packs at £20. 100% of the proceeds will go to charities supporting Ukraine. You can buy them here

Dr D and i have done some work on the back.
special collectors edition one off card, stay free patch, austere card and sticker
special edition of 7 each with a dot portrait on the back of the card (lucky dip)

If you want the artwork to cut a stencil yourself and decorate your local parks Poo tin you can mail and the reply will have links to artwork you can down load and print and cut yourselves . Remember kids NO one is going to give you grief for painting these on dog poo bins !

SOLD OUT! Thanks everyone raised nearly 800 !
