Obsessive followers would have noted of late most of my works of the past year are based around the art of tattoo and graphic design. Many artists go through dramatic changes as their lives influence their decisions and their work. I am one such example../.
I have recently started work as a tattoo apprentice at Black Sails Tattoo Brighton, because of this i am finding less and less time for painting and creating Fine Art, it also means i have less and less space for my previous works and my new work expands and takes over i must make room for such changes. I have always been an advocate of free art, street exhibitions and vandalism, In a fond farewell to some of my earliest “serious” art works i found the perfect place to wave goodbye and grow a little… .. ././. Here’s to always moving forward./ .
Above are photos of the …//. FRAGMENTS.. .\\\.\ Exhibition which opened 14th November 2013./. Before it filled up./
And below are some ‘poor’ photos of the LOVE BIRDS installation which a third of birds put out were returned and reunited on the night../.
A massive thank you to all who attended, helped, and returned birds on the night./. /x
You’ve found me../. And I’m yours to keep../ …For free ./ .
I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be and they want to go home to the one they love. So if you’re the lucky one happen across one of these stray birds take them in and they will love you always,.. . /. /././ .
Go one step further, for each bird left on the street there is an equal and opposite waiting. Bring them to the show where their loved one awaits.. ./.

Free Art Friday
I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures that we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These free art birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be too, they also want to go home. So if you happen across one of these stray birds, take them in and they will love you always.. .. ../ .. /.//./ .

Though it didn’t necessarily fall on a Friday this week i decided to postpone the free art drops one day and release some birds with a gay twist.. . ../. i hope those who found them took them in to a loving home and didn’t treat them any differently o.O .. . …. .. ../. ./ .
And that’s where i left them. .. . ././ .

This Easter Sunday there’s going to be a free exhibition in Portsmouth not only is the exhibition free but everything.. .. Everything on display will be free to take away with you. I am really pleased to be a part of this, So many people want original artwork on their walls but most feel it is too expensive to buy or like so many pieces it is just viciously overpriced. There will be 100s of pieces on display from 100s of fantastic artists. So if you’ve always wanted to collect some original art this is the time and place to do it, you may just find your favourite artist of all time. .. …. / . /.
