So here’s our latest piece on slate called ‘Lightning Bolt’ which is now framed up and good to go. This will be exclusively for sale at the Herrods pop up shop – which is open for this week only at 95/96 Lower Marsh St near Waterloo.
I think perhaps the colour palette and background stencils were subconsciously inspired by Olympic superstar Jamaican Usain Bolt. Although I haven’t got a particularly good reason for printing a skeleton on there other than the fact i thought it looked good. I particularly like how when printing on slate you get a grungy look to the print due to imperfections on the surface of the slate – which I think gives it a little more character. Hopefully it will get snapped up this week and we won’t have to bring it back home with us…
Now Herod wasn’t the nicest person who’s ever lived but that doesn’t mean the people involved in this little pop up shop are the same, in fact quite the opposite. From Herrod himself:
We’re not only stocking fine contemptorary art, porcelain with a twist, but there’s also an exclusive selection of retro garments nestled in one corner. We think it’s possibly a one-stop-chrimbo-present-buyin-shop… but then we are biased (and delusional).
If your in the area i would definitely suggest popping in. I was down there the other day setting up and saw some absolutely fantastic pieces from the likes of Rowan Newton, Carl Cashaman, Remi Rough, SPQR and Agent Provocateur to name a few. Oh and us as well!!!
The pop up shop is only open for this week can be found near Waterloo station at:
95-96 Lower Marsh, London SE1 7AB
Monday 17 to Monday 24 December
11am to 6pm / Wednesday 19 ’til 8pm
Ding dong merrily on high, in heaven the tills are ringing! It’s a new day, we’re a step closer to Christmas and we’ve got even more stuff on Ebay…
Star Wars Episode 7: Vader’s Big Idea
Star Wars: Episode 6 – The Return of the Jedi saw Darth Vader die. Or did it? In fact, he lived on as a cloned version of himself and after retreating back to wherever it is Dark Lords of the Sith go to make their nefarious plans he’s back with a new approach to taking over the galaxy. In Episode 7 Vader’s back with a new shiny pimping costume and a decidedly different approach to galactic domination. Rather than an army of tough-guy clone troopers he’s decided to get himself an army made up of sexy stormtroopers (cloned from his own dead mother!) that he’s willing to hire out to whoever has the most intergalactic credits to pay. Expect to see cards similar to these in a phone box near you some time soon… It’s a single layer screen print on A3 paper and is signed on reverse. Here’s the Ebay link.
Tammy in a tank
This piece was inspired by a larger version we painted live at a small show we had a while back . It’s clearly a cat in a tank but her dark motives are obscured behind a cute fluffy visage but don’t be fooled. Surely the fact that she’s in a tank means her intentions aren’t entirely honourable. This is entirely made using the magic of stencils and spraypaint and is a glorious A2 in size. I for one welcome our new feline overlords… Here’s the Ebay link.
