Amazing opening night with blood sample shots and live culture alcoholic petri-dish jellies accompanied by the creative scientific soundz of DJ Andi. The show was packed all night and the work was really well received. The Heroes do it again!
Fresh off the press my pieces for Hero of switzerland - RAD SCIENCE the exhibition. From tomorrow night until Sunday.
5th Base Gallery,
London E1 5JL
23 Heneage Street
Come down for the Private View from 6:30PM
Bleach the stains out of your lab coat, put a test tube in your pocket and join Hero of Switzerland and friends as they delve into the definitely-more-clever-than-they-actually-are-but-fuck-it world of RAD SCIENCE.
Oozing green slime, bubbling beakers, flux capacitors, malfunctioning robots, terrifying but strangely erotic-looking instruments - everything you could possibly find on our persons on a Friday night. RAD SCIENCE will be a beautiful laboratory of the Heroes and their friends, a celebration of all things that help and harm, create and explode, hum and whir, of what grows in jars and is sewn on mice..
We have seen the future and it's RAD SCIENCE. JOIN US.
The 6th May 2015 sees the 175th anniversary of the fist ever postage stamp - The Penny Black - to mark the occasion, Hereford College of Arts, House of Illustration and The Hay Literary Festival are hosting a touring exhibition for which I have been kindly asked to contribute by decorating an envelope. What a great brief! After much thought and eventually arriving at a simple concept, this is my working process to realise what I had in my head. I painted maybe 100 penny stamps using a mixture of acrylic and Dr. Martin's water colour inks. Cut out the individual (borderless) stamps drew round them in light pencil onto the envelope and painted in the white perforated borders making sure the space and the stamp were numbered. Once the borders were completed, I simply glued on the corresponding stamp to the space.
