East meets West.

Lamberty_Damask_Bag_Web©  There is obviously a lot going on this week, the art world goes nuts in London, piggybacking on the fact that they’ve put up a large tent in regents park… (Before you get too excited it’s not a funfair…but a totally different kind of circus.) So to mark the occasion i’m doing a couple of shows on the same night. Of course this is Art we are talking about so i’m going to have to use that dreaded word ‘Juxtaposition’. There is one East and one West, each the antithesis of the areas they inhabit. “In the West corner weighing in at 655 pounds Lamberty’s Urban & Pop. A suave evening guaranteed, Champagne cocktails, elegant swag and some of the finest Dotmasters High Class Trash, 6pm-9pm Thursday 17th of October. And in the East corner weighing in at £4.50 The White Canvas project, a rooftop celebration of all things aerosol. A great line up, live painting, bar, Dj’s a proper old shindig where you will be able to buy my Mr Potato head Toy edition (unless you want to wait to see if you can find the ones i will street drop in my treasure hunt the week after). So if your Classy check out trash in the West or if your trashy check the show in the East and if your schizophrenic catch them both. Looks like it will be a busy night!

Easter beach break

I Got the call around mid February, How do you fancy a week in the sun end of March painting an old ice cream parlour/cafe/hotel? The only snag being that the Hotel was being demolished soon after and this was the last weekend available to paint the thing inside and out…. oh and we were going make a movie about the 48 hours we had to do it.

Mission improbable it was, but with a good local team. Chris and Heinz, Roberto the local paint guy, the spray paint shop Linea6 and the wonderful Edith, her twin daughters and son, we might just pull it off. Easter of course brings it’s own problems, it often rains. Flights and hotels become problematic and the whole island shuts down for the most sombre event in the christian year.

With everything set on the thursday before Easter the artists started to arrive, we had a little over 48 hours together with the clocks going forward on sunday night, tight was only screwed tighter. Flying in for the weekend were Loomit, Zadok, Sickboy & Kelster, Nick Walker, Lucy Mclaughlin & Matt Watson, Conor Harrington and myself with Banek and Ezequiel

Collaboration between myself, sickboy and Zadok

Saft films and ian Wallkandy tore around the site frantically documenting through a smog of paint and beer fumes. The setting was incredible and the house came alive, the oldest part of the building was at its core a hotel and the layout of the rooms, the vanished ceilings and exposed beams, lent itself well to our use of it as a ruined gallery. A maze of dark dead ends and tiny corridors that opened into crumbling courtyards.

Although the pressure was on, in such a wonderful location with amazing local food and people popping round, a lot of fun was had. We had a few near misses but we all survived. The local guys Ezequiel and Banek tore it up, zadok painted till his taxi took him to the airport. I haven’t laughed as much for a long time, and can’t wait to see the short film that comes out of it. Ended up popping something up on Hotel Zhero…they did ask…Honest. For more info on the project and to find out when the film will be released check out Widewalls or catch up with them on Facebook.
