It’s better down where it’s wetter @ Displacement

It’s better where it’s wetter – now with added legs!

Last night was the opening night of the Displacement group show which is taking place for the next week at 229 Clare Street near Bethnal Green tube. All the artists involved in the show had painted on Clare Street at some point before the show. As the area is slowly gentrifying we thought we’d go for a canvas version of the wall piece we painted before it disappears for good.

Wall version on Clare Street

It would seem that everyone is a critic. Although it is the only damage I could spot…

Both versions feature a slightly overweight looking Ariel the mermaid. She does, in fact, look a bit like an American tourist with her Hawaiian shirt on but rest assured she’s just trying to blend in whilst finding the secrets of the oversized land seals they call humans. She can’t wait to say the spell to get rid of her human legs and get her fishy bottom half back so she can get back under the sea. It’s better where it’s wetter…

Go Cav Go! Drive that train!

One of my friends told me that cycling is the fastest growing sport in the world (although after a quick check online it would seem that mixed martial arts is perhaps the fastest growing sports in the world so i’m not entirely sure what to believe) so we thought we’d do a little tribute to the fastest man on two wheels – Mark ‘The Manx Missile’ Cavendish.

The muse came to visit and her parting words were ‘Sometimes a picture of a sexy girl holding a bike is all you really need…’
