Next Thursday I’ll be playing records alongside Prince Paul, Dan The Automator and Digital Vagabondz for the Scotty Hard ‘The Science of Sesh’ album launch party at the legendary Max Fish, NYC.
New slogan piece ahead of my show at C.A.V.E Gallery this Summer. I started painting slogan murals around 10 years ago. They started off quite BIG and over the years have got BIGGER. Despite a few attempts, I’ve not felt able to translate them successfully onto canvas. After many hours tweaking and refining the process, I feel they’re now heading in the right direction. To my surprise, they tend to work better on smaller canvases. To me, this new approach allows each piece to retain the same kind of rawness and immediacy of the giant murals, but without trying to compete in the same arena. You can expect plenty more of these in the near future.
This exclusive Kid Acne x B&B Gallery print is the first in a series of artworks celebrating Sheffield pubs. I’ve had the idea for a long while now, but ironically it took me to quit drinking in order to find the time and discipline to visit, document and illustrate over 100 pubs without getting distracted.
