Artwork done with electrical tape on the front of the Vans Off shop in Pescara as part of the Stride festival curated by Millo.
Thanks to Alesandro Falco for the photos.
The singer Plan B (Ben Drew) owns a charity called Each One Teach One. They held a charity auction at Shoreditch House of things 'money cant buy'. One of the lots was to have your portraits done by Matt Small, Millo, and Myself. The buyer decided to have Millo do his portrait, me do his girlfriends portrait and Matt to do his child's portrait. Above is my piece, made from electrical tape.
Thanks to Printspace for the materials and framing. And thanks to Plan B for tweeting a photo of my drawing :)
My friend is now the manager of the Courthold Hall bar so he asked me to go do some artwork there. Started drawing the top image but realised the lines were too thin so I took it off and drew the bottom piece.
Me and My friend Millo decided to do a two person show at Hoxton Gallery in December.
For a whole month we were locked in my studio in Whitechapel painting for 14 hours a day sometimes. Every painting was a collaborative one. We were both super happy with how it went and the show was so busy the gallery extended the show for two more weeks.
A few paintings and prints are still available, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Millo at email@example.com or Hoxton Gallery at Kevin@hoxtongallery.com
