Sphere of Influence

We haven’t seen one of the spheres out and about in a while. This one seems to have taken an intense interest in this young lady’s rainbow coloured hair and has been following her around for days now. Quite what it’s doing is entirely unknown. 

Whilst most people may be a little concerned that a ominous orb has been shadowing their every move Emilia here doesn’t mind so much as it looks great as a mysterious background for her Instagram pictures. She’s been gaining followers at quite a rate but she has been having some rather odd thoughts of late…

She’s on a 40cm wide circular canvas board and was made using the magic of acrylic paint pouring, a touch of manual dexterity, some imagination, stencils and spray paint. She’s available to be rehomed so drop us a line if you’d like her to live with you…

The Kid

John couldn’t quite put his finger on when it started. But it had been going on for a while and he’d had just about as much as his sanity could put up with. Whenever he’d go up to the attic where his extensive model railway was set up he’d find that things had been moved around. Never broken but definitely not where he last left them. He’d spoken with his wife but she swore on her life she hadn’t been up there in years, as agreed. After deciding it was extreme measures or his sanity he set up a camera trap. 

Sure enough when he next went up his things weren’t as they should have been. After checking the camera this mysterious and slightly feral looking child with a small bird on his shoulder was what he saw. The police were called but ‘the Kid’ was never seen again. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

The little tyke is on a nice 60x60cm square canvas and has been made using the power of imagination, stencils and spray paint. It’s finished for now but be quick if you want to give it a home as I’m already asking myself whether I can stand the minimalism…

Sam Crow

Let’s just start with the basics. Sam Crow here isn’t even a crow. He’s a raven. But he was raised by crows. His first name isn’t even really Sam either but he doesn’t know that yet. There is much that Sam is yet to learn.

His adopted father had enlisted him in the Royal Bombardiers when he turned of age and he’d been progressing rapidly up the ranks ever since he’d masterminded a devastating ambush on the gulls at the Battle of Subway.

His education and enlistment had all been part of a mysterious agreement made many seasons ago when Sam, who was fresh out of the egg, had been adopted by Belasko’s nephew. The reasons for the rush adoption had been unclear but the payment for doing so was less ambiguous.

All said and done the wheels are already turning and great things are afoot for young Sam Crow. But he doesn’t know that yet either…

We’ve got previous in the world of crow related art and this is just the latest instalment of an occasional but ongoing epic tale of urban avian skullduggery with more aerial combat, vicious peckings and egg smashings than any story has a right to contain. All conducted right above our heads on the busy streets of London.

They’re A2 and made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. Drop us a line if you’d like to give either Sam a home…

Lady Themis & Dishonest Robin

In these dark and worrying times we all need heroes and I present the superhero power couple of Lady Themis and Dishonest Robin. You may be wondering what the lady of good counsel and personification of justice is doing hanging around with a robin who will steal, lie and cheat his way to gates of hell (and the deaf and dumb boy whom Robin commands around as his glorified perch/sidekick).

Well, when Lady Themis is disregarded in her judgement then Dishonest Robin comes into his own. He dons his superpower guise and turns into Nemesis, Lady Themis’ rightful antithesis. As Nemesis, he brings just and wrathful retribution to all of those who would not heed Lady Themis’ wise counsel. Basically a superpowered version of good cop, bad cop. Probably best to do just do what she suggests…

‘Lady Themis and Dishonest Robin’ are each on a 61cm x 61cm wooden panels and are made using the magic of acrylic, spray paint and paint pen. Drop us a line if you’d like to give them a new home…

Cheers

Turn up the speaker…

Hmmmm. What wise words can I impart about today’s offering? Well, sometimes art is all about a clever idea executed well and sometimes it’s just titillation. Today’s piece is firmly in the latter camp but sometimes we can do naught but follow the muse. 

I’m not quite sure what music is playing but it’s definitely bass heavy. That much is for sure. And the speaker goes up to 11. I’m pretty sure we can get away with a few extra decibels…

First ever selfie

The year is 1839 and the prize that is at stake is the first selfie ever. The internet will tell you that American photography pioneer Robert Cornelius took the first ever selfie but I would contend that Roche Bobois, seen here posing in front of some mystery minimal graffiti, took this selfie some weeks before.

I’m not at liberty to reveal how we came to be in 1839 with a can of pink and an ‘X’ stencil but suffice it to say we’ve now returned the DeLorean to it’s rightful owner with a little note of apology under one of the windscreen wipers.

In Like Flint

With the addition of Maria de los Muertos on drums it would seem that the line up for my all-girl Prodigy tribute band, In Like Flint, is finally complete. 

Along with Mandrogynous on vocals and Introverdent on keyboard I’ve now got a bona fide girl band with enough firepower to take on the mighty Red Hot Chilli Poppers. The world of tribute bands will never be the same once I get these girls on the road…
