Somewhere, Sometime Exhibition Preview 2

Heres a few more pieces that will be on show from 7pm this Thursday at the East Gallery, 214 Brick Lane. These and others will be available to buy all week.

RedBull Logos

I got commissioned to paint some large Redbull logos on a few ramps at Bay66 skatepark last week. It was for the 'Manny Mania' competition they just held this weekend. Note: Painting on a sloping surface that you continually keep sliding down is hard work and no fun!

Somewhere Sometime group exhibition starts 1st July

Just to give all you Londoners a heads up: I'll be taking part in an exhibition titled 'Somewhere, Sometime' along with 14 old colleagues and friends at the East Gallery, Brick Lane during the first week of July. I've got some nice work on the go for the occassion - I'll reveal more as we get a little closer to the opening night (Thursday 1st July). But for now heres the flyer, featuring my good friend James Wards expertly sketched bear. Expect to see a mix of styles and content, a live DJ set, cash bar, and hopefully, hopefully, a warm summers evening! I will also have artwork and limited edition large posters for sale to.

Something to mark in your diaries:

Mesh137 Box @ LondonMiles

A new exhibition/show called 'The Next Generation: A New Chapter In Contemporary Art' opens at the London Miles gallery down at Westbourne studios, Ladbroke Grove tomorrow evening (Friday 11th June) at 7pm. It's being curated by 'Think Space' gallery (of Los Angeles) director Andrew Hosner and will featur 12 x 12 inch works by an international selection of emerging and established artists (with some real great names in there). There will also be a tall standing 'art box' installation comprised of recycled cardboard boxes painted by local artists - including one painted by little old me, as well as video interviews with the artists playing on LCD screens, a towering T.V installation, and live music and art throughout the evening. All in all it should be a stormer, so if your free, or near the Ladbroke Grove area - come on down and have a drink with us and check out some cool artwork. And yes - there will be screens showing the footy as well!

There was some talk of the boxes being auctioned off for charity - so you might even buy my box to help a good cause! Anyway heres my box painted to the theme of 'The Next Generation':

Wall Painting at BaySixty6 Skatepark, Ladbroke Grove

Sorry about how long it's been since I last posted - Just so many different bits on the go at the moment. Heres a wall painting of my 'eyepatch whiskey' character at BaySixty6 skatepark down Ladbroke Grove. It's hard to tell on the photos, but it's a pretty large piece (8ft tall).

It needs a bit more work but I'm too busy at the moment finishing other things so I'll have to get down there sometime next week. I also have a group exhibition with some friends at the East Gallery in Brick Lane coming up in the first week of July. I'll post the flyer and full details in a day or two! Promise!
