It's been a long time since I've updated my blog. To be honest Instagram has become my news page due to the convenience of it but I have missed more detailed posts so I'm back.
2015 was a pretty fun year, with 2 solo shows in New York and some fun commissions locked down. I had some time to decompress and prepare for my next project.
2016 is all about taking some time to focus on my next solo show this summer, learning new techniques and enjoying the process of creating new works. I look forward to sharing updates with you.
We were invited to the VICE 20 party just before Christmas and bumped into Action Bronson. He was part of the original Hip Hop Royalty series I painted back in Spring 2014 and funnily enough I just finished a commission for a collector the day before. I have enough time for this guy!
Saatchi Magazine came by the studio yesterday to see what I've been up to. Write up and video coming soon.
I recently got asked to create a piece of world famous hip-hop producer J-Dilla. I also released a limited run of prints where I will contribute 25% of proceeds to the J-Dilla foundation. They are available HERE.
Freshly Printed have released a super limited screen print of my Marilyn Monroe piece.
Edition of 25.
5-colour hand silkscreen print on French 350 GSM ‘Smart White’ archival paper
Paper size 12.5 x 16 inches (32 x 40.5 cm)

This is my first screen print so don't miss out!
Hope to see you all at my print show next week. Join the event, drink beer, look at some of my new works and have good times. This is my first show of 2013 so it would be great to see you all.

I have started preparing for my third solo show. I haven't got the exact date yet but it will be sometime towards the end of this year or early 2014. Here's a preview of one of the pieces I'm working on right now.
July and August are set to be a busy time. Over the course of 2 days I will have 2 shows. I will have 2 pieces showing at a group show at Imitate Modern which will be all oil based works and the day after a solo print show at the Puma 21store in Boxpark, Shoreditch.
Here's a teaser shot for the Imitate Modern show.
I am currently working on a Nina Simone commission for someone in NYC. Lucky for me I had some visitors come in a take a snap.
It's been a heavy week working on the Mandela piece. The good people from the Carnaby St offices came by and took a shot of me working.
I'm currently working on piece of the great Nelson Mandela. 30 hrs in and a lot more to go.
