12 Days of Xmas is open now

Once again Steal From Work have crow-barred their way in-between the mince pies, mulled wine and bumper Radio Times to cram 70 of the world's most loved & loathed contemporary urban artists together under one leaky roof for 12 festive fuelled days.

Last year was the first 12 Days of Xmas exhibition. It was held in Bristol's former Bridewell Police Station, and was hugely successful, attracting over 4,000 visitors over the 12 days. It has gone down in history as one of Bristol's best ever art shows and certainly kick started a huge interest in Street Art in the city. As well as proving that you don't need to be in an established, white walled gallery to show brilliant art and attract the crowds.

This year they've assembled art from 70 local, national and international artists, once again mixing some of the scenes leading lights with up and coming artists to provide a massive range of work available to buy at prices to suit all purses or simply just to gaze at…

Stitchy Stitchy

Call it OCD or insanity if you will, but stitching words has become a major part of my latest work and occupied a good part of the 'Old Glory' Show.

I spent many many hours hand sewing these small works. Its like the antithesis of most of my other work, its slow and methodical, repetative but strangely satisfying.

It certainly occupies a completely different head space to spraying stencils.... but I guess cutting stencils is just as repetative. Stencilling is seen as rebelious because of its street art roots, but its easy to forget that someone needs to cut out the stencils for hours & they have probably spent ages staring at their screen in photoshop tweaking the image, so its all a choice of methodology, cutting, stitching, photoshopping, stencilling, ironing, its all an ongoing process...

Heres my latest::

See more here on my stitch 2 gallery page.........

The PDF catalogue of the latest show can be found on the steal from work website here

Old Glory is open.....

The candles were lit, flags draped, beers popped open and the doors were open for the curiously warming show that is 'Old Glory'...... Friday night was a good night to remember, its one of those rare shows that I can happily stand back from and fully say that I'm happy.....Steal From Work have made the show look phenominally gorgeous. The night was also good to put faces to names & meet peeps that I had only met through cyber world... and before i knew it I was sipping white russian and contemplating the odd journey I've been on this year... This year has been a good one..... and for that I feel incredibly lucky......

So, 'Old Glory', conveniently titled now that America is perhaps discarding the politics of 'old' and bringing in the new...

I can't help but think of how my use of American flags now almost seems to have a new meaning, could we happily be seeing the end to fear culture? Obama has a huge ball of crap to untangle, but I believe he is the man for the job, the world should be safer now that the war mongering ignorant clown that is Bush has less than 2 months to cause any more mischief. Anyway, enough rambling, heres some pretty pictures of the show... all the images are on my flickr:

Brick Lane Gallery

Just got back from an opening at visual imprints in brighton, really good show, certainly worth a look (jake wood evans, illjoeseph, jeepers & lotz) some real talent.

Last night i was at the Brick Lane opening, heres some pics of the work: 'Crime scene' next to a piece by Irony, 'Hidden' flags and 'Paranoia' flag

The show is on until Monday 8 September and includes SPQR, Bandit, Kendra Binnie, Ben Allen etc....

Nearest tube: Liverpool st - Aldgate East

Open Daily: 12-6pm until Monday 8 September

The Foundry

Last week saw a great show at the Foundry- which is an urban/underground/ street/ call it what you will group show in a gritty yet cool bar..... good to put more faces to names - the show has a great mix of urban styles, The Krah, Snub, Rugman, Mr Gauky & Fors being some of my favs..

The Foundry has a weird massive turntable downstairs which begged to be 'surfed'- needless to say.. it got a bit messy as people wizzed round with beers, kinda like having a merry-go-round in a gallery

This is a proper 'grass roots' show- of thats the right term, artists/ streetsters doing it for themselves, another nice touch was that mostly we knew eachother, which is strangely rare, and well, nice i guess.

This show is only up until Sunday- so go take a look, I had my eye on a few things which I'm kinda kicking myself that I didnt just buy when i was there.
I have this other flag upstairs by the piano called 'Key' which is ironic. Looks a tad more sinister than my previous flags: Approx. 141 x 80 cm Discharge, bleach & dye on vintage american flag.

OPENING NIGHT 28th of August
Exhibition is open until the 7th of September

Down stairs gallery at the Foundry:
86 Great Eastern Street London EC2A 3JL
Old Street tube (exit3) t 020 7739 6900
