Some overview shots of my collaborative exhibition with Gent48 current running at Proof London.
Thrifty Egos is an anagram taken from Fortyeights the name of our crew and collaborative partnership launching soon.
The show runs until Sunday 27th September, work is available to buy online here.
I’ve recently painted a couple of pubs for Bulmers for their summer campaign #LiveColourful, the colours are based on the bottles of their 5 flavours, this one’s at Bedford St bar in Leamington.
Five years ago alongside Juice 126 and Zoot I painted the word Forward, Birmingham’s motto in Baskerville font, Birmingham’s offering to the world of printed letters.
This summer I spent 4 days with Gent improving it in the run up to the City of Colours Festival, who paid for a lot of the paint and blagged us a scissor lift, without which would have made this a lot harder to paint. I think Gent’s characters sum up Birmingham quite well, striving forward, but stumbling in the push and falling to the ground. There’s also an element of Animal Farm in there.
A rushed late night and early morning paint with Gent.
A couple of better photos of jobs from Maypole youth centre, with Gent48 on the portrait work.
