Colourblind

£POA

Installation made from wood, lead, using x-rays retrieved from around the world (one from a friends sister in Poland) to represent everything to do with equality.

(Smaller three x-ray piece available in white or black frame)

Money, the route of all evil

£POA

Mixed media collage backed on US dollar covered wood.

The skull, representing evil, is a collage entirely made up of different currencies from Egyptian pounds to Disney dollars, leather wallets, old credit cards, financial times clippings, coins etc.

American Dream

£POA

Mixed media collage, using ink, spray paint and paint.

This collage is entirely made up of American packaging, money, Disney dollars etc. It’s an ironic look at what the Native Americans would essentially lose their land for.

Urban Fox

£POA

Mixed media collage on road sign.

I wanted to create an urban fox entirely made from rubbish and items I found while on my travels around Croydon. It’s been in the making for around a year, trying to find each perfect piece such as old rusty coke cans etc. Made on an old discarded road sign, spray painted white with a few of the original features left coming through.

The piece represents the way a fox improvises due to the environment, by foraging and scavenging.

Neon Skull

£POA

Graffiti inspired spray painted skull in presentation box

The Old Curiosity

A portrait of my Uncle, created in ink, marker and splashes of paint for his awesome beard, all backed on pages from Charles Dickens' The Old Curiosity Shop

Urban Fox

Urban Fox Collage – Mix Media on Road sign.

I wanted to create an Urban fox entirely made from rubbish and picked up items I found on my travels around Croydon. It’s been in the making for around a year trying to find each perfect piece such as old rusty coke cans.

This is made on an old road sign my dad found for me that I sprayed white with Montana Cans but with a few of the original sign left just coming through.
The piece represents the way a fox improvises to its environment using rubbish and it’s urban environment.

This will be on view in October in Matthews Yard Croydon in October for an exhibition for local artists. Why not come along and have a butchers…

The American Dream

She takes along time but I will make her beautiful, all made up of American packaging her skin is made entirely from ‪‎recycled Starbucks‬, McDonalds, KFC, ‎Pizza Hut‬, Dominos‬ and other American companies.

The final piece is to portray what the result of what the genocide would be…the American Dream.

Skull Tattoo

I was asked to design a skull with roses & some red involved for a shin tattoo.
I get asked all the time to do designs for tattoos, though most tattooists are great illustrators, so I usually tell people to go to them to do it as Im very busy doing other artwork nowadays.

I charge about £25 an hour to design them. Currently in the chair being tattooed as I type!

Atom

Collage Piece for a very talented tattoo artist Ten Tonne Atom on recycled Art Deco type paper using black ink, black paint, nails, vintage buttons, Lego, wood, watch bracelet, mulberry leather & paper and of course framed.

Cheers for doing all the ink on my left sleeve bro.

50 shades of grey

Trying out different skulls ?
Geometric Skull on Acetate (transparent plastic)

  • Drawn in Ink
  • Thickened in Pen
  • Montana White spray paint
  • Then painted in Grey, black & white acrylic
  • Touched up again with black ink.

This is supposed to look sketchy & imperfect.

 

By using acetate, you can use light so that the piece can be changed by any surface it is put in front of.
