Fear and Loathing in North London

Here's my painting from last weeks Guilty Pleasures and Modern Vices show. It's based on my 'Trippin' poster from a couple of weeks back,  Always nice to mix up styles a little. Paint pen, spray paint and crystals on a hand varnished wooden block. 20cmX 20cm.

New Show: 'Modern Vices and Guilty Pleasures' opening next week

I'll be exhibiting a painting in next weeks 'Modern Vices and Guilty Pleasures' show by London Miles gallery. See flyer and description below - I'm particularly chuffed to be exhibiting alongside Insa as I'm a big fan of his work. Lot's of high heels and hot chicks with great big bums. What's not to like? Each artist in the show was randomly assigned a vice or guilty pleasure and asked to produce a painting based on that theme. I was assigned drugs. Again let me state the vices were randomly assigned.

London Miles Gallery is proud to annouce an exhibition featuring all Uk artists, from street artists Alex Young and Insa, to incredible digital painter Tom Bagshaw. Each artist was teamed up with a particular vice or guilty pleasure at random and are required to create a piece of art inspired by that vice. The outcome has been impressive and to say the least, we are already addicted to this emerging group of UK talent.
Vice is a practice or a habit considered immoral, depraved, and/or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a defect, an infirmity, or merely a bad habit. Synonyms for vice include fault, depravity, sin, iniquity, wickedness, and corruption.
Featured Artists:

INSA, Alex Young, David Marsh, Tom Bagshaw, Xue Wang, Craww, Carne, Mr Gauky, Michael Forbes, Ruben Ireland, Mr Penfold
Opening reception: Thusday, June 23rd 2011. From 6pm to 11pm.

On show: June 23rd to June 27th 2011

New Location: 65 Hanbury Street. East London.

'The Road' painting

Here's my painting based on Cormac Mcarthy's novel 'The Road' from the literal eyes show a couple of weeks back. It's a bit of a low res pic, but I'll post better shots soon. This work is currently available to buy from the London miles gallery. You can contact them here if you are interested:
