Pumped Up Kicks is a six-artist exhibition which scrutinises elements of the stigmas surrounding youth culture and its (mis)interpretation. Works shown range from installations that consider the rebellious nature of youth to prints that relate more overtly to the political situation today.
I have just completed my commission to paint a mural at the Priory Arms in Stockwell. I took inspiration from art deco and Belgium design taking consideration of the Belgium produce the pub specialises in (Delerium!). Quite a pressure painting on some one else’s walls but I can relax now! Very narrow corridor so terrible pictures!
Following my Design internship at Proud Galleries I have been assigned to design a flyer for thier upcoming Pop up Christmas shop. The Gallery will be selling posters, postcards, limited edition prints all from Marilyn to Morrisey!
Thank you to Open Doors for a great exhibition with the result of my pieces being sold. Looking forward to the next Borough!
With the brief of the exhibition themed around Shepherds Bush I based the work around Lime grove Studios. The studio housed filming and broadcasting for the BBC including shows such as Top of the Pops, Dr Who, Steptoe &Son and Sooty.
I created two collages, combining the different elements of research surrounding my subject matter. The set of two consist of found papers, photo montage, water based crayon and ink.
