Case 2 the one armed computer rock wildstyle maestro died this morning after a long battle with cancer.
He was without doubt one of the most stylistically advanced style writers on the planet…
I remember doing constant playback pauses on my parents old VHS trying to get a good look at the outline he was drawing and the trains that flashed up on the screen when I first watched Style Wars… A true legend!!
My thoughts go out to his family and friends at this sad time.

My good friend and collaborator David Shillinglaw has a new show opening to the general public in just a matter of days…
I shall be present and bigging him up as he’s without doubt one of my favourite artists!
My good friend Marco Grassi is always keeping busy and constantly doing exhibitions all over the world… But his latest exploit sees one of his amazing large scale pieces accepted into the private collection of the prestigious Banca Generali in Italy…
The piece was so large that it had to be lifted in to the building through a second floor window by crane.

I’ve been trying to balance out the dirt and decay with clean lines and take a much more minimalist approach to my recent paintings.
This one’s entitled – ‘Sometimes the dirt shows through.’
Sometimes the dirt shows through
Spray paint & bitumen on canvas
100cm x 100cm
Painted for a friend inside their blackbook.
I painted this 100cm x 50cm canvas live at the newly refurbished Adidas Flagship store on Oxford Street at the weekend. Shoppers put their details into a lottery in order to win it.
I even signed the front of the painting, which is unheard of from me.
