Olivia Colman Commission



















I was recently commissioned by actress Olivia Colman to draw her and her husband Ed. All of the elements and patterns in the background are photographed from within their house, so the artwork is all the more meaningful to them.

Recently I donated the opportunity to have a tape portrait of yourself to the Reprieve charity auction at the Wallace Collection.  Here is some progress shots of one of the winning bidders, actress (and all-round hero) Olivia Colman.

The other artist to donate work to this auction was Anthony Gormley.

I was ecstatic to have raised £6100 for the charity that night, and £9100 in total for charity during the months October and November.

Studio Documentary

Here is the new film documenting myself at work in the studio. It offers a rare insight into the way that I create works using electrical tape, and my inspirations and reasons for doing so.

Above is a new work entitled RIOT, first exhibited at Well Hung gallery in Hoxton. The work is created using only black electrical tape on glass – the roll of tape in the bottom corner is to give an idea of scale.
