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.
Had a banging weekend up on the Wirral a few weekends ago. A great project to rejuvenate part of New Brighton by the passionate team at Rockpoint leisure. I was invited by an old studio assistant (Rob) to take part in a series of murals aiming to breathe new life into a forgotten part of the Wirral, which was once a famous go-to entertainment destination for Merseyside, a Disney cross the Mersey.
It’s hard not to mention Dan Davies when talking about the changes that are happening within this community. He’s a driving force behind the look and feel of the area and has an easy-to-like social agenda that you can identify with whether you are a visitor to the area or a local. Over time i’m sure this faded Vegas will rise in ways that weren’t planned or foreseen. That’s what great about it! There’s a general buzz in the area, an enthusiasm that means that more than the sum of its parts are possible. Go Dan! Really can’t wait to be asked back.
