April and May are fast becoming my busiest months ever! I have 2 brand new paintings going to the Stroke 02 art fair in Munich with Laura McNamara. I will be exhibiting work along with Juice 126, Zoot and Mac 1. This is one of the pieces going to the art fair.

19 / Juice 126

I thought i’d give another good friend of mine some blog love today. Juice 126 was and still is a big influence upon me and what I do. We met at the World Graffiti Championships in Bridlington in 1989 and we’ve been friends ever since. We started a Reptiles together and our now both Agents Of Change together… We’ve painted more walls together than I can count and i’ve watched his influence wash over so many artists from all over the world!
Here’s two timeless classics from him…

One of my best friends and a truly amazing artist; Stormie Mills recently did this huge mural in Perth’s city centre, just before he opened a major new exhibition.

16 / Paris trains from back in the day

A short visit to Paris way back in 1993 led to these being painted. I got to paint trains with Jiwea, Opak, A One and Sharp and I can’t knock that…

15 / ‘Never a dull moment’ at White Walls Gallery

I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in a group show in February at the prestigious White Walls Gallery in SanFrancisco. I had an amazing time and met some incredible artists and image makers. Here’s the installation and artworks I made specifically for the show. A big thanks to Io Wright for bringing me out there…
