#EasterEggGrenadeHunt begins

April 16, 2014

Having had great feedback from my Santa giveaway over the Christmas period I decided to take up the giving spirit for another Holiday.
Four Easter Egg Grenade designs made from spray-paint via hand cut stencils make up the 2014 set. These pieces will be sold via my web store and hidden over the Easter week in London and Paris. With updates and clues via my social media platforms you will be able to follow in my wake and join in the #EasterEggGrenadeHunt for your chance to find some free street art.

The hunt kicked off yesterday with the first piece in Trafalgar Square being found in about 30 mins!!

Joint venture with investables.co.uk

January 28, 2014

If you haven’t heard of them already I’d like to introduce a great new company – Investables started by Steve Stevens an avid street art collector turned dealer/agent with a difference. I have been in contact with a lot of agents over the last 5 years and it can be pretty frustrating experience. Investables put their money where their mouth is and share the risk by commissioning artists who they believe in. We have been in touch for a little while and I’m glad to say they like my work enough to back me in what hopefully will be the first of many joint ventures. The first EXCLUSIVE piece will be ‘Miley Cyrus’s Smash Hits’ with the Original and prints being released this Sunday.

Last two free pieces delivered

December 27, 2013

The last day of giving away my Santa’s Mugshot pieces went off with out a hitch. I knew what trees I wanted to hit and with ninja like qualities they appeared under their magnificently decorated but temporary homes. The first of the day was the Fortnum & Masons Christmas tree – St Pancras, with all its wicker boxes. After placing it, I hung about for a few minutes blocking out the thought that I might cause a bomb scare. It caught a few peoples eyes as they walked past but they didn’t break stride. Satisfied with my placement I headed to the next spot.

f&m2f&m1Covent Garden was packed. The tree was under guard from budding amateur photographers and the ever changing sets of families standing in front of it. I circled the massive potted tree a couple times and with the welcome distraction of a street performer starting his act I put it in place. Walking away I was convinced that someone would surely have clocked the new addition and removed immediately but instead the families just kept on coming. I must of watched about 100 families pose with Santa’s head looming over them before it was taken. The guy seemed happy :) The final tree was my favorite and a good end to this years Christmas giveaway.

Firstly MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!!

Yesterday I delivered two more Santa’s Mugshot stencil pieces under public Christmas trees in London. In Kingly Court by Carnaby Street was the first drop off of the day. I sat near by for a bit, posted my clues and watched as many tourists, had their coffees, took their photos and left. Then headed off to grab some non festive mexican for dinner and the next tree.

Its about 6pm before I reach the last tree of the day, London is cold, wet and quiet but as I approach the HUGE Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree the festive sounds of carol singers surround it. I jumped the barriers and placed it under then headed home.

New member to the 2d taxidermy set

August 13, 2013

The 2nd animal to join the 2D Taxidermy Set has arrived – The Indian Blackbuck – In the 19th century, blackbucks ranged in open plains from the base of the Himalayas to the neighbourhood of Cape Comorin, and from the Punjab to Lower Assam. They were abundant in the North-Western Provinces, Rajputana, parts of the Deccan, and on the plains near the coast of Orissa and Lower Bengal. Herds occasionally comprised several thousand animals of both sexes and all ages.

Today, the blackbuck population is confined to areas in Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu andKarnataka, with a few small protected areas in central India.
