SAVE YOURSELVES: Exhibition

SAVE YOURSELVES They say home is where the heart is, but in our case, home is where the art is. Well this may have been the case a while back in Hackney Wick, but these days the sights of cranes, bulldozers, developers and hoardings seem to have replaced the now lesser spotted artist.

Hackney WickEd 2016 Pt.3: The Burning Of Homogenization

Hackney WickEd 2016, Part 3: The Burning Of Homogenization Back in the day when we were lawless, Hackney Wicked was known for it’s closing ceremony where something or other would be burnt as an offering to the Wick gods.

Hackney WickEd 2016, Pt.2: The Lord Napier

Hackney WickEd 2016, Part 2: The Lord Napier Along with the Save Hackney Wick’s Artists campaign, I had this hair brain idea that it would be fun to give the Lord Napier pub a much-needed makeover.

Validation: The truth about my “IG Rage”

My website has become a necessary, time consuming & expensive burden that no one ever bothers to check out, but I am damned if I don’t and damned if I do. It seems like it was the ‘must have’ thing for any business and artist 10-15 years ago. Quite hard to build at the start […]
