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.
My good friend and colleague Augustine Kofie came down to South London straight after opening the Rudimentary Perfection exhibition in Glasgow.
I’d managed to hook up a rather tasty wall in a pretty prominent position, on which we began our colourful assault a couple of days ago…
Anyway, here it is along with a few photos taken over the couple of days.
