The Bridge

𝕋𝕙𝕖 π”Ήπ•£π•šπ••π•˜π•–. ☠.

Standing Proud.

A symbol of a Place. A unique gateway.
A subject I’ve meant to paint sooner.
The Bridge. Monnow Bridge.
A commission that turned into two. A fun stencil to cut.

Things not said can mean more.

Seems like everyone is jumping on the band wagon for everything that comes up.

Dita Von Tease

π”»π•šπ•₯𝕒 π•π• π•Ÿ 𝕋𝕖𝕒𝕀𝕖.

Perfect Fit.

This years pretty lady piece, Dita Von Tease, another one that when I saw the picture I thought about the placement on the canvas more than anything.
Was very tempted to do a cross behind, maybe in a subsequent spraying.
Also one of only two where I have started with a black background and it works really well with the colour tone.

The little bit of under spray probably actually helps it come off the black a little, I don’t think it spoils it at least.

Patriot Caine

Sharing Opinion

Delving into the whole pop art / political opinion arena whilst also creating a portrait of one of the UK’s (and the world’s) best actor’s, Sir Michael Caine.
I have a lot of respect for what this gentleman has to say about recent event’s in the UK, it’s not about race, religion or origin, it’s about a country being able to make its own decisions about what it does, funds, law’s, let’s in, let’s out.

It’s very rare that I do personnel opinion work and share it publically here but I just couldn’t bite my tounge on this one.

Clevedon Pier

Playing with lot’s of things.

When I saw this photo of Clevedon Pier I immediately loved the symmetry especially after thinking of the idea of putting it on a square canvas. Also tried an idea that has been brewing to play with and separate the colour tone’s into two.

I quite like the live action remake, was a good homage to the original anime, hopefully they do stand alone etc.
Also been a while since i’ve done a scarlett johansson piece.

Background covered in pages from japanesse special literature and comic books and two vinyl stickers.

Not that many layers involved in this one but a stink load of detail on layers 2, 3 and 4. Thought it worth documenting.

Little Piggy

Big canvas to play on.

Acquired a BIG canvas, played with it once and didn’t like it, covered it in addict camo green, thought about it for a while, sketched this idea, so sprayed this idea.
I don’t do freehand that often but I think I’m getting better.
