I'm very pleased to announce that my first solo show of 2018 will be held at Play Dead Gallery in Southsea. The show runs for 6 weeks beginning with a preview night on the 20th January.
In Quiet Desperation is the much anticipated follow up to the successful 2016 solo show will see me further explore the other side of our persona, the masks we wear and the places we go when we are alone. Bringing to the surface all the the things we suffer in quiet desperation.
I hope to see you there and would very much appreciate it if you could share the event to help spread the word.

Originally painted for the Play Dead show last year as a statement about the nerves and anxiety I was having leading up to the solo show there. This piece has been kept with me every since but I have now decided to make it available for anyone who has ever felt out of place.
Play & Destroy is the latest show at the amazing Play Dead gallery in Southsea. Featuring over 40 skate decks from some of the UKs best street artists this is a show full of variety that is not to be missed.
Czee painted the wall out front and I got a little space inside the gallery for a skatedeck shaped korpworm.
In 2016 I started a Kickstarter to help fund a solo show at the Play Dead gallery in Southsea. Some of the pledges from that campaign were for commissioned pieces of art and today I was finally able to deliver the very last of those commissions. I don't usually hand deliver work because of the pressure of seeing your art being unwrapped by its new owner but as the pledge was from someone local I decided I would and I'm really glad I did.
Here are a couple of pics of the artwork. It is titled "The Fear Goes Away".
This weekend saw the opening night of Nothing Is Lost by Midge at the Play Dead gallery. A fantastic selection of serene artwork with an intricacy that has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Very happy to finally add these limited edition prints to my store. Designed by Korp and screen printed by M-One for the Play Dead show these A3 silk screen prints on heavyweight 290gsm white card are a very limited edition of 10. All are signed and numbered by the artist.
These were the original inspiration for the Play Dead wall which you can see here.
There is no shortage of great photographers in Southsea. These shots were taken at my solo show in Play Dead by the talented Matt Maber. Social links below photos.
