The show opens on the 9th October 7-10pm and runs everyday from 10th to 25th October.
I have 3 new pieces in a group exhibition in Tokyo that opens tonight. All the artists involved were asked to find 3 objects that have been used, discarded, second hand and recycle them to give them new life so that they can once again enter back into a new market with a different value. I found my 3 objects in a charity shop, second hand furniture market and a jumble sale.
En One Tokyo - NEW END MARKET VOL.2
2F, 5-11-1, Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
www.gallerycommon.com 21st – 29th September.
‘Gallery COMMON aims to find new value other than a classical art and collaborates with many artists to create one off art pieces using found objects or products that have been thrown away. Junk that is lined up in the market, stuff that is broken and things that are clean but left unwanted. We asked these artists to put a new value onto these found objects by customizing them with their own twist. We believe we will be able to create a new art market together with these artist through this project’.
CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS INCLUDE : Ai Fukasawa / Ayumi Iguchi / Cho-Chan / ESOW / Koi
I made a postcard for the FUTURE POSTCARDS exhibition at the Oriel Davies gallery. Artists were asked to create a postcard vision of the future. The exhibition is on now and runs until the 17th of August. See more info HERE.

BIG Thanks to everyone who helped me set up my show in Glasgow. If you live in Glasgow or are visiting check out the Recoat Gallery. They are always putting on great exhibitions and organising interesting projects with artists from around the world.
As part of my exhibition in Glasgow me and the Recoat team made two POWER murals outside the gallery. It was the first time that I have ever made my work on such a large scale. I wouldnt have been able to do it without the help of the Recoat gallery team. Especially Ali, Amy, Gordy and Snookie. You have inspired me to make many more.
ROSS WAY MURAL WEEKEND AND EXHIBITION
In November 2011 me and 2 other artists, Tais Bean, and Paul Garayo took part in a mural making weekend with the amazing kids and residents of the Ross Way social housing development in Limehouse, East London. We then had an exhibition of the murals plus a screening of a short film about the weekend at the John Scurr Community Centre, Limehouse.
‘What began as a foray into communication through illustration evolved into a full-scale two-day mural painting event for the residents at Ross Way, a new social housing development by A2Dominon in Limehouse, East London. Armed with paint brushes and all the colours of an acrylic rainbow, the children launched into an assault of imagination, led by Bureau de Change, an innovative East London arts organisation.’
