A couple of better photos of jobs from Maypole youth centre, with Gent48 on the portrait work.
Painted another New Balance inspired piece for Sneaks and Peaks the other week. Limited edition gold year of the dragon trainers fresh out of the box. These are the only ones I could find with a character involved. I can’t afford to keep buying these just to paint from so if you have any new NB colourways and would like to lend them to me for the day drop me a message, or if anyone’s reading with a supply and would like to donate pairs definitely get in touch. I’ve spoken to NB’s PR company with no luck…
My piece from the graffiti life advent show opening tonight.
I was thinking about the concept of the holographic principle and I wanted to use it in a piece. The foreground melting away from the construct of the grid is a reference to this and other ideas about perception. The piece is titled “A thin sheet of reality”, which is also the title of a discussion I watched on the subject and it fit the work well.
The piece is 420mm x 600mm and is matt spray paint on 6mm MDF.
Available to buy from The Graffiti Life Gallery
A recent commission of my geometric work over in Worcester, thanks to EC ARTS The hoarding was already dark grey with rectangles of colour, I painted the turquoise in emulsion and spray painted the more abstract parts. I left sections of the original paint work coming through to give a sense of history of the space and the layered messy graffiti/fades are painted as if they could be behind the original layer. Its all to give a sense of depth and to bring in ideas of graffiti and the buff.
Probably my favourite piece I’ve done this year, its based on a pair of Colette colaboration new balance 576 I picked up a fair few years ago. Great day in the sun too!
