The Street Art of Penge and Anerley Book for Charity

I’ve been painting with the Penge street art crew for a few years. The area has become for a go to for street artists and street art fans. It’s a project of passion for all those locally involved and those further a field who support and photograph the process and finished works. Finally after a year of disruptions and false starts they have managed to get a paper documentation of the works and artists that have been working there over the last few years. These are available for pre order now here  https://pengestreetart.bigcartel.com/ 

Available for pre order until the 20th of November with all profits going to St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham. Making it a limited edition publication that documents the work done by all over a few short years.

A word from the producers:

Over the last 18 or so months ourselves and our dear friend Street Art Atlas have been working on a project we are super excited to finally be sharing with anyone who cares. We have created a book documenting in photographs and text how our community street art project SprayExhibition20 has blossomed since 2016 making Penge and Anerley the largest open air gallery in London with over 170 artworks up at current.

We would like to offer a massive thank you to Street Art Atlas for documenting our project from day 1 and using so many of her excellent photos in this book, which she also designed and put together superbly. Thank you for all the time and dedication to this project and on this book! Big thank you to Colossive Press for all the editorial advice and help behind the scenes, answering all our questions. A huge thank you to Dotmaster and Irony for the unbelievably generous donations to accompany this book, beyond kind both of you. Lastly thank you to all the artists who have painted for us around SE20 over the last six years,  to everyone who has donated a space to allow the artists to work their magic and everyone who has stopped by to admire the creativity and support this initiative that we couldn’t be prouder of. 

So there you have it and you can purchase the book and potentially some special edition artworks exclusive for this project here https://pengestreetart.bigcartel.com/ with all proceeds going to St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham.SprayExhibition20 – The Street Art of Penge and Anerley.

Since 2016 Penge and Anerley has become a hub for Street Art in London, with SE20 having hosted over 400 artworks to date. So in acknowledgment of how this project has grown beyond our wildest dreams, we thought it was time to share some of this project with anyone who is interested. SprayExhibition20 – The Street Art of Penge and Anerley is the first publication to showcase the art of Penge and Anerley, covering a selection of work from 110 artists spanning 2016-2020.

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)

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.

customized Lockdown products Rude Kids Studio work

Lockdown worx

Thankfully a couple of years ago we built a studio in the back garden, so when the news came of the Lockdown my work suffered less than many in the UK. i could still make stuff, but the thought of making a show that would probably not be seen, left me having to reevaluate what to make in these uncertain times. I settled on a series of experimental works using the motif of a kid painting smiles on well loved works of art. It kind of made sense to have these three rude kid characters , Astrid, Indigo and Edgar painting, stuck indoors like the rest of us.

I am sure i was not alone in taking to the bottle during lockdown. The news and social media streams confirmed it. During the drunken haze that was the first few weeks that included my wedding anniversary we were sent a two bottle box of wine to help us celebrate. The box was just too cute to throw away.

I didn’t want to do something 2d or canvas based, and with my only 3d gig Glastonbury cancelled (i am the art director Unfairground) i thought i’d try and make these little boxes into stage sets where i could pop these three naughty children and up cycle this little wooden box.

Each box has its own RGB remote control so that the lights can change to whatever colour you require, there are preset programs with fading , jumping and flashing between different colours. The back panel is laser cut wallpaper out of birch ply, The frames are 24k gold leaf. I will be making a small edition of each light. Video of them working to follow.

Excited by these cute little lamp works I’ve also made some larger scale wall based works, at the time of writing this only one is finished and i will be posting some more updates as they are finished. The below version has interchangeable works that you can swap out depending on your mood.

These will be one off works, still no idea how to show them, where they will be available. hopefully work that out when they are all finished. To get your name on a waiting list for the Lockdown wine boxes email seesix at gmail with the subject Lockdown wine box

Friends Laos mural travel

Namkhan Ecolodge, Laos

Totally slipped my mind i hadn’t posted something on my whistle stop trip to Laos in February this year. Myself and Ben Eine headed off to Luang Prabang the religious capital of Lao on the Mekong River. Part of an ongoing art project at Nam Khan Project. Artists are invited to stay a week and make works inspired by the NamKhan Ecolodge. It’s a green sanctuary along the Namkhan river located in Luang Prabang, Unesco World Heritage city.

Surrounded by the farm, jungle and riding stables. A big thank you to the kitchen staff who cooked a storm up for us. Although they did owe me as i brought a top of the range ice cream maker with me from London and those things are NOT small…lol

Had a cracking week, Camping by the NamKhan. Boat trips up the Mekong, note to self, don’t jump off a moving boat in a fast moving river! Life there is so relaxed, the guys at the Lodge made everything possible. Hard to look at this as work at all, well fed , well watered and in the jungle by a river.

Guest house kitchen

We even managed to paint some pieces in town, a big thank you to Jean Marc and Danni for giving us the walls! A great trip out with a 13 hour stop over in Bangkok , meeting up with friends and trips to the tattoo parlour, what could of possibly gone wrong…just leaving this there.

Instagram the shit out of it.

Smile for the NHS jigsaw puzzle

Smile for the NHS jigsaw, available from tomorrow morning at 10am Saturday the 9th of April on sale for 10 days.

It’s hard to make a difference during the lockdown if your medium is the street.
It’s like Christmas day out there all week! As any writer knows Christmas day and its deserted streets are a gift that keeps on  giving. But should you as an artist take advantage of it? I did an early straw poll, a few posts online, at a half hinted enthusiasm for getting some new work out there; i was unsure, i did a peer review and found the answer was a resounding NO!

What could i do to help? What use is art on a deserted street anyway? “Why don’t you make a puzzle out of one of your works that people can do at home” the wife suggested. I could make it in halftone i thought and make it fiendishly hard, Burn some furlough hours round the kitchen table for those stuck at home.So i have, it’s an old Dotmasters favourite with a framed Mona Lisa with a blue NHS smile. Completely made out of half tone dots with very little help from the picture on the lid of the box. 

Proceeds will be donated to the NHS and hopefully this 500 piece puzzle can help while away some time for those stuck at home. Music by The Buzzcocks.

Mind in the gutter

So this is first solo show in Paris, it was in the mid 80’s i first saw stencil work on the streets, Nemo, Blek le rat and others. These heroes inspired me to take up the scalpel and paint on the street. Paris has always had a rich stencil history, from 1968 till today and it is a great honour to show in this city.

A bit about the show written by the gallery

“Mind in the Gutter” is the name Dotmasters gave this exhibition. It evokes for him dubious intentions, ambiguous actions, all these unsavory and yet jubilant things. Faithful to the vandal and provocative essence of urban art, this title captures the artists’ state of mind, who, jovial and lucid, enjoys taboos, contradictions, new gods and the absurdity of our contemporary lifestyles.

The exhibition offers several levels of reading: one can appreciate it as a pop, offbeat and impertinent visual experience or read in it an ironic critique of today’s society. Dotmasters develops the concept of “high-end waste” with brass sculptures of chanel paper bags. Through this realization, he takes note, reinforces and plays on the ambiguity between marketing and works of art, between single piece and disposable goods, between aesthetic value and commercial production.

Second theme dear to the artist, rebellious and cheeky cherubim populate the works of Dotmasters. Made from photographs of her nieces, nephews and friends, these stencils bring a mischievous and indocent hue to the exhibition. The turbulent and transgressive little angels who speak out or show their fingers to the spectator remind us of the joy that arises from disorder, the creativity generated by chaos and especially the importance of not being earnest.

Where there’s muck there’s brass, Painted cast brass sculpture
