artist + art director
In Summer 2018 I was commissioned by NETFLIX for a very exciting 'Orange is The New Black' x PRIDE project ! The first stage was a mural in Soho, London which I completed before London Pride in the first week of July. The mural featured life size characters from the series plus quotes from the show and my own LGBTQ+ language relating to Pride. SOCIAL LIFE the social media agency who brought me onboard, made official Instagram GIF's from my artwork that can be found by hashtagging #oitnb on your Instagram story.
Social Life also made a timelapse of me and my assistants making the mural which featured on Netflix's Facebook page HERE >>>>>>>>>>>>>
I went on to make another half size mural in my studio which was
photographed for reproduction in Belfast and Margate for
their own PRIDE celebrations. I drew some additional
regional elements for each city which were added digitally
For the last phase I produced another live mural in my
hometown of BRIGHTON for Pride.
November 22nd 2018: 'The Mitre's Touch'
I am currently showing in a group exhibition at 35 Gallery, Brighton. 'The Mitre's Touch' is the brainchild of creative framers Rainsford James. They invited a select group of artists to produce work specifically for the show and then went on to frame the work in unique and exciting ways. I produced 'FREDDIE'S COMING OUT JACKET', a customised biker jacket using mixed media: acrylic, spraypaint, pen, ink. I then made a portrait of Freddie Mercury to attach to the back of the jacket by hand painting onto satin then quilting to give a 3 dimensional effect. I finished off with studs, safety pins, patches and badges. The entire surface of the jacket was covered. I placed the jacket on a gold bust and Rainsford James framed with a perspex box and revolving base!The exhibition continues until December 22nd and is open Thursday-Sunday.
December 7th 2018: My solo show is now on at BRUSH Gallery in Brighton!
