[My Tape Drawings]
Streetfest was awesome. I did this drawing after doing an artwork at Red Gallery for the 3rd birthday party (photos to come soon). I ran out of tape too so I didn't get to finish it but I think it looks pretty alright.
Thanks to Global Street Art and Streetfest for hooking it up.
Been doing a few of these recently, tapedrawing then spraying over it and peeling it off. This ones on Brick Lane in Shoreditch, big thanks to Global Street Art for letting me do their wall :)
Recently I was asked to do some artwork on the Stubnitz ship at Canary Wharfe. It's a German Cold War ship :)
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to put a piece in the Scraffer exhibition on Portobello Road so I did this mannequin. White electrical tape on fiberglass.
Other artists exhibiting included: Dscreet, A.ce, Inkie, Remi Rough, James Jessop, Rowdy, Pure Evil, David Shillinglaw, and Kid Acne.
Me and David Shillinglaw did another collab for the afterparty of his recent show. Best Ever, Reka, and Remi Rough also did collabs for it.
The sketch I did for this artwork was recently exhibited in Berlin, photos to come soon.
I recently completed this artwork at Acklam Village under the Westway at Portobello Road. I was asked to do it by Scraffer, amongst other artists including Inkie and David Shillinglaw.
I decided to do a tape version of the Samuel Beckett sketch I did a while ago (It's also the design of one of my stickers). Once I'd drawn the piece with electrical tape I sprayed the whole thing black and peeled it off to create the negative-space. It's like an inverse stencil or something. I plan to do a lot more of these I think it's pretty interesting.
The artworks were completed as part of the Salon Des Refuses exhibition, which opened last night and is running until this Sunday on Portobello road.

Soon I'll be releasing a series of artworks for just £50.
The above two are examples, all will be drawn with white tape onto vinyl records. Three have sold already as pre-sales so contact me if you'd like to reserve one before they all sell out.
David Shillinglaw has an exhibition at Stolenspace next friday, the afterparty of which is at Vibe Bar on Brick Lane. The afterparty is also going to be another exhibition with collaborations between David and 4 other artists, they are Reka, Remi Rough, Church of Best Ever, and me :)
As well as this, Vibe asked me to do some artworks in the bar, the first set are signs for the toilets.
Come to his show.
