Woah, been ages since I updated this. So much to say, too lazy to say it. I’ll start with a couple of magazines that ran me on the front cover last month, 2 different types of art magazines but I guess you could say each one reflects a strand of my work. First up Irish Arts Review, a mag focusing on broad range of Irish art (above photo courtesy of Will St Leger) . And then of course graffiti and street art specialist VNA, a favourite of mine for a long time. Cover shoot thanks to Shamil Tanna.

And finally here’s a nice vid from film-maker Joao Retorta that we did during the shoot.

13 Feb Black Herds of the Rain

Last summer I went home to Ireland with filmmaker Andrew Telling to make our second film together since we went to the Middle East to make Crossing Lines.

The cowboy mentality is common in Ireland. It might be because we’re on the Wild West of Europe, I’m not sure really, but we also have a strange fascination with American Country and Western music. It would also appear that our politicians and bankers were in cahoots with each other, got carried away at the party of a lifetime during the Celtic Tiger years and rode the country to near ruin (of course the people of Ireland were at the party too but I’ll leave them out of it). This film is dedicated to them.

10 Jan Dead Meat / The Last Supper

Here’s a super quick-ass piece I did on Sunday. By far the quickest piece I’ve ever done, infact if I was organized enough I could do one of these on my lunchbreak everyday. But I’m far too much of a hungry man to waste valuable eating time. The piece is part of an exciting film project I’m involved in, and its also an image from my upcoming show at Lazarides in March. More details soon.

03 Jan Stephen Lawrence

Haven’t heard this tune in years but searched it out a few minutes ago after hearing the verdict in the Stephen Lawrence case. I can’t remember how much the story made it through to my 13 year old self at the time of the murder but this track by Life MC from Phi Life Cypher certainly did when I bought it on vinyl a few years later.
