Super delayed photos coming your way of Illustrative Festival I recently exhibited at in Berlin. The turn out was great and it was wonderful displaying my work alongside other talented artists from across the globe. Plus I used it as a great excuse to work and experience summer in Berlin, thanks also to a generous friend and his wonderfully equipped balcony-turned-studio.
I’ve been busy busy busy behind the drawing table recently, and am back in Berlin showcasing this new work. It’s all happening next Friday at the Illustrative Festival, and it’ll be as colourful as this poster.
An exhibition of my new illustration work is being held at Direktorenhaus in Berlin this coming week. Opening night is Tuesday 9th April at 8pm, and runs until 15th April. Details can be found here. Thank you Pascal Johanssen for inviting me and making all this possible!
It also gives me a brilliant excuse to visit Berlin, and a chance to pay my dues to Kathe Kollowitz, can’t wait! Now I just need to catch some sleep before my absurdly early 6am flight, courtesy of budget airline.
A bit late in the day – things have been really manic lately, but here are some photos from the open studio show held at the Tea Building in Shoreditch, London. Its a very raw space provided by The Prince’s Drawing School, hence the exposed pipework, lovely to work around that when hanging up my work.
All the artwork will shortly be put up on my website for sale, if you are interested in buying a piece – prints or original paintings, drop me an email.
I’ve just finished painting a mural for the Queen of Hoxton in London. 15 artists have been selected to create new artwork on their walls, I worked on the exterior facade, whilst the other 14 artists have been busy painting up a storm inside the venue. Its been a challenging experience, battling with the wind, and working on such a large scale for the first time – two walls, one 13 metres wide!
The opening night for the new work will be on the 24th October – save the date! Details can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/events/360802137341909/
I have several pieces of work that have been selected for publication in AOI Images 36: Best of British Illustration.
They also made it into the Images 36 show, currently exhibiting at the Somerset House until 28th October, go see it if you’re in London! Its in a beautiful building, displayed amongst other wonderful work. The show will then be touring around the UK until September 2013.
