Who would of thought it, me showing Trash in Belgravia… but it’s true. Just to prove it frequent collaborator Joe Giacomet and I made the flyer as well as some bloody nice Swag for the show. In true Sw1 fashion there are beautiful girls serving Champagne cocktails, some entertainment and a whole load of art from an extinguished list of artists… Show opens on the 17th of October, more info to follow.

I’ve been busy in the studio the last few weeks, playing with some new surfaces, working out some new bags and generally getting ready for Nuart. At the end of the month i have some works going into a show for the Portobello film festival at the Louise T blouin Gallery from the 28th of August to September the 1st with works from myself Joe Rush, Teddy Baden, Sickboy, Code FC, Lucy Sparrow, Peter Dunne, Solo One, Alex Wreckage,Cosmo, and Red Dog. It’s a nice Gallery and should be an interesting show.
And their OFF! in a fleet of dodgy vans, and sketchy trailers the Unfairground takes its summer pitch down on Worthy Farm. It’s ok we’re expected. A few of us are going. You’ve seen the film! We don’t read books! NOW see the Tee shirt. Thanks to Jakey for being a model .

Plans are afoot for a very silly night out in the Rejects gallery on the 9th of November. A glamourous night of trashed is guaranteed, they’ll be rewards for those who either come dressed ‘High Class’ or ‘Trash’, that is… pikey or posh to those in the know. Evening gowns and shell suits, prada or drinking trainers the choice is yours! The night see’s a number of Dotmaster themes re visited trash/glamour stick. Available on the night from the gallery the much requested Chanel print, A2 (594 x 420 mm) 250g somerset white paper with 9 colour silkscreen print.
Well it’s been a great few days, the weather has been great, St Ottilien is an amzingly peaceful and beautiful spot and the people have been amazingly helpful, chill and entertaining. Arrived after a hectic couple of weeks in Stavanger for Nuart and a really break neck stop in London on route to Munich.to say this monastery is a change of pace is to understate it. Curated by Vis a Vis with the hleping hand of Loomit the mission for 12 artists was to paint large scale works around the Monastery outside of Munich. Yes thats what i thought, crazy. as it turns out not so crazy the works work well around the place and the artists have really taken the theme of heaven meets earth into their murals….I know what your thinking…what on earth was i going to paint….me too. So i squared it with them first that it would be ok to paint a massive pile of trash. So far so good. So half way through a massive pile of trash, its 12 feet high, (see pics below) i had just finished for the night when the producer of the festival a nice guy called Al;exander came up to me and said “where’s the rabbits?”
“That’s funny” i said “the guy who’s wall it was was asking where the rabbits were too”. (hes a butcher and the building is a slaughterhouse, makes good sausage apparently) The producer says “you said you were going to paint a pile of rabbits”I nearly shit myself laughing, No mate a pile of Rubbish!
To bring it on message with the projects title i added the boy writing “we were given paradise” as much to make a comment on them letting me paint as to make trash on their walls as the general decline of the world into detritus entropy. (just a construction shot below to give you some scale)
Thanks to all those who made this possible especially Father Cyrill, Christian, and Alexander who has more rabbit than sainsburys.
So, now thats all over its time to do some painting myself. I got invited by the legend Loomit who i got to meet a couple of years ago painting in Munich to paint a monastery in the wilds of Bavaria the project is called heaven meets earth and is a curated series of works around the Ottilien Monastery. i know it sounds a crazy idea by Loomit is probably the only writer that could pull it off.
So fly into London to pick up my stuff and off to Oktoberfest….well munich area anyhow. Luckily i am painting at the same time as M-city a long time friend from Nuart so i know Octoberfest won’t be the only ones getting trashed in Bavaria this week.
