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.

Painted this piece as part of sneaks and peaks which which went down this weekend just gone. It’s based on my first pair of new balance 574. I’ve always wanted to do something new balance related, love the trainers and I thought newso balance worked so well.. now I’ve been doing more SNEW pieces it’s a much better fit. The character’s by Gent and the piece too the right Kesh.

These arrived on my doorstep a week or so ago.. big thanks to VNA! I’ve been so busy I’ve not had time to review them for the blog. I will get round to it! Looking forward to the one with mode 2, rough and Conor Harrington, gotta be good.. It’s mad when summer comes around I end up working 6/7 day weeks. I think when the sun comes out people suddenly want their walls painting..
