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 have been selected as 1 of 3 British artists to create a series of illustrations for puma's Worn my way campaign. During the course of 2 months over the summer each artist will showcase a series of prints at Puma's Boxpark space in East London.
This is my first piece - "Worn my Way #1".
I was contacted a few months ago to create a Biggie piece in my style. Honestly I didn't really know what my style was at the time as the majority of my works differ depending what mood I'm in.
A week prior to being contacted about this piece I was in New York with my lady and we visited The Met. We spent hours exploring the rooms taking every bit of it in. We then came to The Masters section. It blew me away and inspired me more than anything I had ever seen. It was from this point I knew I wanted to develop my work using oils.
This piece means a lot to me as it set up my show, "Master Impressions" with Freshly Baked Gallery and set the tone for current and future works.
A friend sent me this pic of me painting at an event last year in The Metro Paper.
I am currently working on a commission for a friend of mine of Pharrell Williams. Here's where I am at right now. Updates on the way!
The good people of Carnaby St are holding a big event on Thursday 2nd November and have asked me to create a Jimi Hendrix piece on the day. Click HERE for more info.
I've never painted Jimi before and it seems pretty much every artist I know has done so I set myself the challenge and decided to work on an additional piece. Here's the WIP shots. The finished work will be available through Freshly Baked Gallery next week along with my earlier works for my solo show "Master Impressions".
