After religiously reading the awesome Juxtapoz magazine for years I’ve now been featured on the website, without wanting to sound like an extra from Point Break, I’m STOKED!
You can read part 1 of the interview by Sandra Butterfly from the Juxtapoz team HERE .
Part 2 will follow very closely behind so keep ‘em peeled.
The nice chaps over at Brainer wanted to check in and see what was happening with the new show. You can read the interview HERE.
After spending the last 8 years spraying paint through hundreds of thousands of little holes cut into card, I’m pleased to announce my first London solo show.
The image on the flyer above, ‘Dress up’, is a 30 colour screen print and will be one of two prints available on the opening night and online at eelus.com the following morning. There will be around 20 or so brand new paintings on canvas, wood and metal.
Nothing more to say other than I hope to see you there for a beer and good times!
Well, here we are, 3rd of Jan 2010 and not a hover-board in site. And with the end of the Mayan calendar falling on 21st Dec 2012 we’ve got just under 3 years to get our shit together before the end of the world…apparently. Apologies yet again for the lack of updates to the blog, I’ve spend most of December driving up the coast of Australia which was pretty awesome. Then of course we all had to celebrate the birth of that Jesus bloke in the only way most of us know how, getting drunk, eating way too much and losing at Trivial Pursuit.
So here is the first post of the year, and what a year t’will be. Febuary the 25th sees the opening of my first London solo show ‘The Colour Out Of Space’, a collection of over 20 new paintings and a couple of new prints. This will be followed by a barrage of brand new street work both here and abroad including NYC where I’ll be taking part in 2 large projects, one of which will see myself and the mighty C215 take over the Brooklynite Gallery to put on what promises to be an awesome collaborative show. I’ve also been asked to curate a HUGE project in Gambia where I’ve chosen 7 of todays best contemporary artists to turn an entire village into what will undoubtedly be an amazing site. Not to give too much away right now but if you like the work of people like Logan Hicks, C215, Will Barras and Lucy McLauchlan, I think you need to start getting excited about this now.
The next 2 months are gonna be the toughest for me so far but I’ll try my best to keep this place updated with randomness and sneak peeks of how the work for the show is coming on so drop in from time to time. For now, here’s a few snaps from down under.
Hope you all have a great year!
My new favorite way to travel.
Friday the 20th of Nov sees the opening of the Lock Up. An exciting show set in the center of London featuring original art from some class acts such as Nick Walker, Goldie, Pam Glew, Mau Mau, Jamie Reid and more.
There will be a buyers preview on Thursday 19th from 6pm – 9:30pm. I will have 4 paintings on show and available to buy, 2 of which are shown below.

I’ve been told to stress that this is a BUYERS preview and space is limited so please only contact me if you’re interested in the art and not just the free ale

First play around with gold leaf, not as fiddly as I thought it would be.
Had a great day painting a new piece yesterday at the upcoming MuTate show ‘One Foot in the Grove’ which opens to the public on the 8th of Oct, check HERE for more details.
This piece will be available to buy as an original painting and hopefully a limited print edition via the guys at MuTate. More details to follow.
