Extremely excited to announce this solo exhibition; “Grandly Grimey“!

grandly grimey exhibition image
My first solo exhibition with a gallery since 2012, this will be my biggest yet.
Grandly Grimey will be on show at Westbank Gallery, London, opening on 22nd September 2016.

‘The artworks I’ll be showing work to recontextualize classical ideas of power that were once portrayed through artistic movements such as Rococo into today’s urban counterculture.
I’m working to subtly subvert these old elitist styles of beauty, not to dis respect or dishonour them, but to bring them into the contemporary landscape where anti establishment feelings are the new à la mode.’

  • I aim to have between 12 – 16 artworks created for the exhibition on show, the most unseen pieces I have ever had in one place by far. Luckily, I started work for this back in February ;)
  • Expect more than just 2D artworks on paper & canvas.
  • Westbank Gallery is a new, huge exhibition space along with its own bar, kitchen, sitting area and balcony. The capacity is about 400 people & we aim to make full use of this!
  • Westbank Gallery is located by Portobello market, in between Ladbroke Grove & Portobello rd.

  • Exhibition, Montagu Evans Offices, Mayfair London

    s1With the great help of Fine Arts London, I was able to exhibit a whole lot of new artwork at the cool & well located offices of property company Montagu Evans.
    I exhibited about 23 artworks (mostly originals) along side some amazing large works by acclaimed photographer Derrek Santini.
    The private view was on the 29th November. You can view photos from the opening evening here.
    As well as art, drinks, and music, we were treated to an interesting talk by Lawerence O’Hana (former gallery owner, Lawrence O’Hana is involved in strategic consulting related to the arts) on the art market and it’s relationship with property (middle image below).
    The opening was a great success and we are planning our next one with Montagu Evans soon (which we intend to be bigger, hopefully taking advantage of some of their more interesting properties). There was a great mix of people which is what I always love to have at my shows.

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:

  • RCA Secret 2016, Exhibition

    rca-secret-exhibRCS-Secret-sent-smlFor the first time I’ve been asked to get involved with the famous RCA Secret Exhibition. I’ve created 2, which have just been sent off (left photo). Each one took me a couple days work, bit longer than most spend on them.

    Every year The Royal College of Art exhibits 2000 original postcards created by internationally acclaimed artists, designers, cultural icons, alumni, & up-and-coming graduates in the same space.
    Each postcard is anonymous with the creator only being revealed once the card is bought by a collector (each on is £55). All proceeds go to the RCA Fund, providing scholarships and bursaries for students.

    London Exhibition (there’s one in Dubai too) is open 7-15 April 2016, Upper Gulbenkian Gallery, Kensington, London. Dubai one: 16-19 March.

Group Exhibition, The Collective 2014

-1This was my second 2014 group exhibition which was held at Westbank Gallery (Notting Hill, London). The invite is shown (right).
groupshow 2 2014

The group show was “The Collective”, curated and organized by Danny Rose and artist Kimberly Thomas.
The gallery space itself is very large, covering two floors.
On the opening/private view (May 1st), we had over 250 people come and enjoy the artwork and few drinks.
The gallery normally specializes in street, urban and contemporary art.
We were 8 artists; exhibiting an eclectic range of artwork, from new originals & prints of my own artwork to sculpture, digital art, photography, packing tape art, paintings on wood…
Happy to report, largely due to a BBC interview with myself & covering the exhibition (see it here) there was a lot of interest and the show was a great success!
