It’s been a lock down autumn preparing for shows in London this month and Miami the next. Plans for the show started in the spring, and over the last few months i got to know the gallery and area. Its a fun pop art gallery in the centre of Marylebone, I used to work in a sandwich cafe down the road when i first left school many years ago. Since then it’s become a well heeled W1 address, the Chiltern firehouse down the road a hot spot for London’s celebrity nightlife. It’s certainly a different location to the place i used to know.
With that in mind the title Trash n Cash seemed apt. Big bucks, black bags and swearing kids on found objects, neon and real hard cash. A list branded trash bags, backed by damask drapes and a theme of defaced currency very much a show for W1.
The show is open till the 29th of November, there’s a little something for everyone with a limited edition set of tee shirts, modelled below by Miss Sophie Hermann, with print details below

I’ve had a close relationship with The Buzzcocks since working with them on their 30th anniversary tour in 2006, creating visuals for their tour and designing the cover for their live album. When they announced that they were releasing a new album, it was a good opportunity to collaborate again and I’ve created the artwork for The Way, released this month.
To celebrate the launch of the album, I used the stencil to create a fine art print on 250grm Reeves off-white paper, with a single silk-screen print. There is a small edition of prints signed by The Buzzcocks, and a run of 76 (the year they started) as a edition of prints signed by me. you can find them in the Shop link in the menu above
