I was back in my adopted hometown of Southsea on Saturday 9th February at the Spray for your Soul event. This was a small paint jam hosted by Staggering Good Brewery at their new bar the House of Rapture. This venue is amazing and I highly recommend you go visit. Set in the heart of an industrial estate from the outside it looks like any regular work unit until you spot the neon purple cross hanging above the door which is a small hint on what to expect when you go inside. The entire venue has been fitted with reclaimed materials from a church with pews for seating, full size stained glass windows throwing the warmest light across a smattering of Dinosaur heads and giant crosses. You have to see it to believe it, hats off to the owners for doing such an amazing job and being such gracious hosts. Also big thanks to Samo at Play Dead for inviting me along to paint with him, M-One, Winniemmay and Syrup.
Check out the photos courtesy of Make Light Work and if you like what you see all the artists Insta links are down the bottom.
As you can see the venue was dark with just a small heater above me providing my only source of light. This added to the mood of the place but presented a challenge for an artist painting a mural. Luckily I had Mike on hand from Make Light Work who kindly set up a battery powered LED light to help me see what I was doing. So cool that some people just have these things lying in their car.
Although you might not be able to tell from the photo I was pretty happy with how my piece looked. The geometric pattern in the background looked good in different shades of grey and the custom korpworm, now know as korposaurus, popped out nicely. All done with stencils and spray paints.

Although I'm not from Portsmouth I was invited to take part in the Created in Portsmouth Arts Trail. Portsmouth, and Southsea in particular, have always been very important to me and have helped me along the way of becoming the artist I am today. Here are some of the photos from the home of Winniemmay who kindly invited me to exhibit with her.
It was the 1 year anniversary of Battle Lines so organiser Cur5 put on a special show featuring 10 artists. I was on a team of 5 battling against another 5 artists in a two hour live art show. Check out what we did.
Ably supported by Team Korp
Huge thanks to Andy and Angela for organising the Cheltenham Paint Festival and doing such a great job of running it. Also big ups to all the volunteers who supported the event especially Dan who was artist liaison at my venue the 2 Pigs. This was the second year I'd painted at the 2 Pigs so I was keen to do something different, hope you like it.
I really enjoyed painting this geometric pattern and I'm keen to do more so if you have a wall you want to blow some cash on give me a shout.
Always love it when a wall is the back drop for a band or a DJ.
This years 2 Pigs crew was Raffaella Bertolini, Tommy Fiendish, Jimmer Willmott, Wolf Skull Jack and RTC with a late visit from My Dog Sighs who, I think, painted at every venue and witnessed every fight in Cheltenham over the weekend.
Here is a recent commissioned mural at The Ostrich in Peterborough. If you haven't heard of the place it has quickly turned into a hub for street artists with regular exhibitions and art battles. I was very pleased to take a couple of walls and create Korps corner.
The lyrics on the wall are from a band that has played at The Ostrich called The Malingerers. I chose this song because it has such a powerful first verse.
As I was finishing off the uber talented Pigeon La Rue was in setting up her solo show and what an amazing combination her framed pieces and my wall made together.

I worked with 2 great friends this year in Winniemmay and Process. Despite the wind we had a great time painting a large board at Ashton Gate Stadium. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture and the only one I can find is just a detail shot of my section.
I did have fun with the paste ups as well and unlike my main board there are a tonne of photos of Margeworm on the internet. Here are some favourites I've stolen.
If you like the Margeworm piece you can buy the t-shirt at my shop. Just be aware there is a catch, if I sell 20 before the 9th September we go to print. If not its refunds all round.
As promised here are all the photos from last weekends paint festival Urban Culture Coventry.
If you like these don't forget to check out the Tamworth photos.
Had a great time painting at Urban Culture Coventry. Although the main event was in Fargo Village me and Kiwi descended on the City Centre to paint in the middle of the Pride march.
More photos from the rest of Urban Culture Coventry to follow...
I was immensely proud of how the Battle Lines crew represented Peterborough at the Tamworth Urban Arts Festival over the weekend. I was joined on the boards by Battle Lines creator Cur5 and Battle Lines artists Process, Arran Macphail, Lee Mason, CurtisCreationz and making his street art debut was Simon Benton. Here are a selection of my favourite photos from the day.
Despite arriving to find out that someone else had already started painting on our boards this quickly turned into good news when I spotted it was RIP Smith and Kiwi (surprise). Always great to catch up with RIP even though I only understand about 50% of what he says due to him being proper northern.
Battle Lines Crew
Gotta say a big thanks to Vic and everyone who helped put on the jam, its the first time I've been and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Here are some photos from the rest of the day.
