A new Contemporary art gallery, called Helix Gallery, is opening next week in Sheffield, England, and I’m proud to be among the great artists in their opening roster such as Nick Smith & Dale Grimshaw.
Their opening night is 5th October.
Helix Gallery will be bringing some great urban and contemporary art to Sheffield, displaying art from several artists at a time for the time being and then moving into single artist shows in 2018. Helix Gallery is owned and managed by Craig Mills, former partner in the much loved and missed Signal Gallery which was located in Hoxton, London.
This week is the one year anniversary for my last solo exhibition Grandly Grimey at Westbank Gallery, Notting Hill, London. It was the biggest exhibition I’ve done to date. This video is from the opening evening. More info on the exhibition here.
A little while back I drew an eagle tearing up a Nazi flag on a Hugo Boss bag (more info on the original artwork here). Well, recently a company called 1 World Vogue Apparel Canada took the anti fascist/anti fashion drawing and printed it onto a limited edition of T-shirts. You can order
one from them online here.
David Kovats used to work in valuations at Sothebys, he is now an independent an art advisor. He got in touch with me through Instagram and was interested in talking about the “on Lux Bag” artworks I was doing. David also has a vlog and wanted to feature my artwork in one of his videos so he flew over from Budapest to film me working on my new series and see my current exhibition here in London.
The video is really well edited I think. Check it out below:
Another for the Vintage Vogue series.

So we should react more in horror to these luxury brands and their marketing than with covetous lusting.
