The High Life

Grottaglie, Italy

Another installation from this year's Fame Festival. This was placed near the local fly-tipping area and dog pound - the high life indeed! This has just been released as a print on metallic paper, signed and numbered. Find out more here.
The image is also available in a very limited, very large format through Andipa Gallery.

What brings us together and what keeps us apart



I've just got back from Grottaglie in Italy where i was working on some installations and shots
for Fame Festival, such as the one above which i think is probably the biggest outdoor thing that i have done (big being relative, of course). For the last three months, urban artists from around the world have been coming to Grottaglie to produce street and gallery work for a show that opens on 19th September, and to eat great home-cooked Italian food supplied by the organiser's mum. You can read more about the festival and see more work by a bunch of great artists (such as Judith Supine, Lucy McLauchlan, Mark Jenkins, Dolk, Blu, Conor Harrington and many many more) by clicking the logo.

The Lair



Southwark, London

My solo show closes this saturday, so check it out if you are around West London.
I have released a limited edition badge set featuring images from the show (anyone at the opening night might have picked a few up!) - you can get them here. I am retiring the older badge sets too, so once the present batch have gone, they are gone forever...

Tunnel 228


Another shot of one of my Tunnel 228 installations. This one is crammed in a dark corner away from the main 'action'. All the installations feature shift workers or night workers of one sort or another; the people who keep things running in a city behind the scenes, in reference to the workers in the film Metropolis who slave away below ground to keep the city running for those above...

Sorry to those who couldn't get tickets - they sold out very quickly but the show might be restaged in the Autumn.

Tunnel 228


I've been working on some installations for a new art/theatre show that opens this week. The show is called Tunnel 228 and is being organised jointly by The Old Vic theater and Punch Drunk, an alternative theatre company. What makes the show so exciting is that is set in old disused tunnels under Waterloo station in London that are normally not open to the public. The show uses Fritz Lang's classic film Metropolis as a springboard and is half an art show, with works by Antony Micallef, Mark Jenkins, Polly Morgan and Xenz amongst many others, and half a performance. I have hidden miniature installations around the space, lit with tiny lights - you will have to explore to find them. Tickets are free, but you will have to book online to reserve a place --------->Sorry, seems the tickets have sold out!

Epic Fail


Festival Hall, London

This is a bit late, but I recently made the above image in to my first skateboard deck for the Identity Crisis show at Shiv Gallery in London (the renamed Cosh Gallery - they like their weaponry). It is an edition of 20.
The show opened last week but will be up for 5 weeks so there is still time to pop along and see great work by M-City, Joe Black, Miss Buggs and Pure Evil amongst others.





In other news my next solo show is coming up soon, but before that something pretty cool will be happening next week...
