1st December 2013
As 2013 is ending i was looking around my studio and saw various pieces from exhibitions held during the year. With the temperature in London getting colder by the day, i always think of those in need, especially those living homeless on the streets. In a small way to help over the festive season i am holding my first xmas sale, in order to raise some money for London charity Shelter by selling these studio works. Every purchase will help out those sleeping rough...so please head over to the SHOP page
Since the end of October I have been incredibly busy....I was commissioned by ACE hotel London to create work for four rooms and during Frieze I was in a 'Three Man Show' with Michael Swaney and Stephen Smith at 18 Hewett Street. I exhibited eight new collages in a group show 'Go Hard or Go Home' on Brick Lane and installed a joint exhibition between myself and London street artist A.CE in Clapton's 119 cafe. Joshua Gordons new label 'Filthy Club' commissioned me to design and produce sets for a fashion shoot as well as design some Tote bags and posters that will be seen around Dublin. UK Clothing label Enclave, featured me as their resident artist on their homepage and you can also find me in the latest issue of Australian magazine Acclaim and issue two of Jaguar Shoes poster newspaper.
In the next few weeks I will be releasing a new abstract screenprint with Manchesters finest Yuck posters, but to keep more up to date, please feel free to follow me on Instagram (Here), Twitter (Here) or Facebook (Here).

My first solo exhibition in Australia opens this friday, and features the original works used in my Maximum Respect zine.
I have two new Abstract paintings in a London group show opening tomorrow (the 25th of July), details are here...
May / June 2013
The biggest news at the moment is that my zine for Australian Smalltime books is finally available to order! Based on the UK Pirate radio scene of 1991-2001, the zine will also be accompanied by an exhibition in Melbourne. The fantastic website THE HEAVY MENTAL have a nice interview with me about it HERE and the zine itself (only 100 copies so be quick!) is available HERE!
This year i started working with exciting London clothing label AFOUR on graphics, and my first tee designs (SS14) are currently on display in Paris menswear tradeshow Capsule...feedback has been fantastic, and photos soon to come.
Last month I began a documentary series capturing on film local interesting people from my small hometown of Twickenham. My first subject was 'Ken' and I am currently in the middle of editing it...expect plenty of stories about Hells Angels, Jimi Hendrixs death, sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.
Back in June I was honoured to be invited to exhibit some art for the amazing Big Issue foundation as part of their 'Big Noise' festival. I created some fly posters that hopefully you would have seen around the festival if you were lucky enough to have gone.. A few designs are now up in the exhibition section.
Finally, there is also a new print in the shop! Back in April I was part of a group show in Londons Notting Hill (Salon Des Refuges V) and one of the pieces I showed was very popular ('Youth')...so much so that im releasing it as a limited Giclee (50xA2 editions). Available in the shop..
