I have this wordpress site, yet I never manage to upload anything. Despite the fact that I am constantly out painting. Ah, yeah. Right . I see the connection now. I need to get me a laptop…. Here are some walls and things that I’ve been painting recently. Enjoy.
This Friday 3rd May sees the launch of the new group show ‘Superstition’ at the Art Schism gallery on Gloucester rd, Brighton.
I have some new work on display. The preview is from 6.30pm until 9pm. I shall be live painting at the event. Event page here.
The White Rabbit gallery opposite shall be opening their doors for the first time on the night and also showing off the new juice bar they have opened with alcoholic juices up for grabs.
You can see a small mural that I have painted for them too.
The Superstition show at Art Schsim runs from 3rd until the 31st May.
I have been helping to run a co operative gallery shop project since December. The shop has just relaunched for the spring/summer and we shall be holding numerous events and shows in the next few months.
I also have some new work showing there and am offering spray paint tutorials over the Easter holidays.

The Sinna One Spray Can rose is here. Made from one whole spray can, that at some point painted one of the many walls, boxes or characters that I have created over the years. I have always been bothered about the fact that when I finish a can, there are dregs left in the bottom that I can’t reach.
I pierce the can, release the dregs, use these as a background on a canvas or painting and then make the rest if the can in to a rose.
Set in to concrete, thus encompassing the life of spray paint from the can on to the wall, and then finished with a felt bottom, to stop it from scratching the table.
These little beauties are now available at the Art Schism shop in Brighton.
Perfect for the Valentines vandal in your life.
As usual for December it is very cold. Fingers have almost dropped off. Rain is here today and may stop play….Booo!!
Here’s the last few days
More to come and don’t forget to come in to the Art Schism shop at 87 Gloucester Rd, Brighton BN1 4AP to see more of my artwork for sale as well as other great artists and makers.
I must start by apologising for my horrendous lack of posts in recent weeks. I have been up to my eyeballs in projects and organising stuff that i just haven’t had the time to even blink at my wordpress.
Right then, here is something that I’ve been involved with in the last week and that is the launch of a new pop up shop, just in time for December. If you are in Brighton this month then you should definitely come down and check it out.
Showing work from over 20 artists, we have an amazing array of arts and crafts that you wont find many other places this December.
You really can’t go wrong with purchases from this shop. And not only that but the majority of artists have submitted a one colour design for a screen print which you can get exclusively in store and see it being printed in front of your very eyes on to tee shirts and paper!!
We are open from the 1st Dec until the 24th. Mon- Sat 10am – 7pm Sun 11am – 5pm.
For more info and updates go to the Art Schism Facebook.
I have been working with an arts collective called CompARTment for a couple of years now and their ethos is to use empty or disused spaces for arts and events.
Brighton Fringe is once again upon us and this time compARTment have joined forces with other collectives to continue their mission in finding empty spaces.
The Waste of Space project is a collision of ideas in secret locations through a series of pop-up exhibitions, music, workshops and performances. The aim is for visitors to immerse themselves in a creative trail reviving empty spaces.
The preview of our first pop up opens tonight at 99 Church Rd, Hove. Doors open at 6pm.
Expect to see art from members of all of the collectives and a fresh new gallery space that shall be playing host to many different exhibits, workshops and events over the course of may. Also keep your eyes peeled for our other venues, which shall be updated over May on the Waste of Space site.
I shall be showing some work, and there will also be a GRAFIK WARFARE showcase happening on the 18th, 19th and 20th May. Expect for there to be amazing new artwork from Grafik Warfare members and friends and also some spray painting and street art workshops.
There is also a launch party on Friday the 5th May upstairs at the Albert.
