Gold, silver, glitter and mother of pearl works for the festive season. A mix of old techniques and street savvy images in an irreverent show of luxury and detritus. Verre églomise, gilding, gold glass and spray paint combine to provide a Christmas bauble of a show.
The show coincides with the launch of the Rude Kids Clobber a range of clothes for the discerning rude kid. We will also be launching a silk screened edition of Skateboards (details to follow…)
It’s become a bit of a tradition at Graffik Gallery that i dress the Christmas window. I love it! I’m not sure how they feel about it… but its that time of year again! And it is traditional… I loved last years window, so the pressure is on! Pop in and see, i’ve been working on it for a while… open to the public 14th -31st of December
The Westbank Gallery have moved, and their first show in their new space is Big Bang a group show in a really quite cool space, It was the old social centre, so it has a bar in the middle of it, it’s a cool place to see art, or have a drink, or both. There’s a lot of friends in the show and last night was a good chance to catch up, not sure the tequila helped much.
I had other works planned for it, but with the death of Lemmy and Bowie recently i had to mark there passing somehow and the dollar bills seemed a good way to do it, the serial numbers are their birthdays and dates of their deaths.
The shows on for a month, nearest tube is Ladbroke grove, adress is 3-5 Thorpe Close W10 5XL, it’s under the westway.
I’ve been working on some new surfaces and sub-straights, painting bags on bags and working out some new luxury and necessity brand bags to add to my piles (now that sounds wrong). There’s a few shows coming up the first is those nice guys at the Portobello film festival, This years show features works by myself and Joe Rush, Sickboy, Code FC, Lucy Sparrow, Teddy Baden, Peter Dunne, Solo One, Alex Wreckage, Cosmo, and Red Dog. This years show’s venue is the wonderful space at the Louise T Blouin Foundation. Then its off to Nuart with a whole new set of works for the streets of Stavanger.
With some works in a group show in Cape Town in early September its a hectic August. Oh yes and i forgot, the High strikers going to Bestival so look out for it there accompanied by the gobbler and the crack heads to add a twisted unfair corner to the festival.
