Girls and Boys Grow Old.././. Brighton 2015

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./ .


FRAGMENTS.. . ./ /. LOVE BIRDS. . //.

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


The Love Birds.. ./. Have Been Split.. ./ /.

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 Pigeons.. . . /./. October 2012


Pigeon Process.. . . ./. ..//.

Today i have been very busy indeed.. ./. ./ Aside from all the other little projects i have going on all over the place, today i decided to document the process of creating a whole batch of Free Art Birds.. . ./.

Phase one.. . / This beautiful piece of hardboard i lifted from a skip last night.. . /. So first i had to see just how many pigeons i could get out of it.. .. 9 is the answer.

Next Chop them up with one of my favorite tools

a circular disk cutter.. . // mm mmm m

And then give them all a quick coat of black.. . Again my

favorite of all colors, And i know the knee jerk response

to that “But its not a color, its a shade!” that may be

in the natural world but when it comes to paint every

single shade / color needs pigment to give it said color,

in my case the color of that pigment is indeed black,

and as i stroke the black paint side to side i am coloring.. . . . /./. Its a color.. . ./.

Phase four, time to get dirty and finger paint .. .. . /.

Finally after the paint is sufficiently dry add the final touches in the form of eyes,beaks and sign off . . ./.

Tomorrow i will post close ups of each one of these little fellows before they go on their individual journeys.. . .. /. Some are going to Portsmouth tomorrow to find new homes, Some are going.. .well im not sure where yet it all depends on who wins the competition tomorrow on Facebook,.I will be running another give away to all those who share and like the links, names drawn from a hat at the end of the week.. . find out more here

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.. .. ../ .. /.//./ .   Find out more on https://www.facebook.com/FreeArtFriday

Pigeons With Pride.. . ././. //

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. .. …. / . /.

Here is what i will be contributing, three impressions of Jim Morrison’s mug shots .. .. . /
