VOTE

So it’s election day, and my! What a choice there is ! A Myriad of promises, logos and strap lines. Its like your at a market on a Sunday where everyone is selling knock off goods. They all look legit but after a few washes the the signs of forgery are sure to show themselves in time. Inspired by the lies and images that accompany them and a desire to see how paint works on glass, led me to a practice paint on this much loved phone box / voting booth in Dalston (well loved with the late night crack crowd and your voting crack). so here it is !  A pic n’ mix of logos, slogans and lies that it doesn’t matter which way round they are arranged and organised in the end up in the same old message. Promise the world if its secures you power. Then you have 4 years to line your pockets. Personally i’m up for spoiling it, faced with the candidates my choice is to register a protest after all spoils get counted. We need a dramatic change, not a pick of the same coloured hue of bullshit

film prints Trash

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.

So… i said, ” you know i don’t use a computer when i make these gaffa taped objects to the wall. I just print them out 9 times usually in black and white and then cut each colour registering each to the one before it.

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.

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
