bass culture: a sound system way of life

An exhibition celebrating sound system culture held in a reclaimed police station in Bristol.

The piece I created for this exhibition wipes the smiley from the face of an acid house icon. It responds to the law that set out to destroy rave culture in 1994.

Created for an exhibition in a reclaimed police station in Bristol. Sold*

Thanks to Desert Storm sound system.

For this Dance & Disobedience exhibition I created some paintings in support of the LLSB [Long Live South Bank] campaign to save London’s legendary South Bank skate spot and help raise awareness about the council’s shady plan to bulldoze The Undercroft and replace the world famous skate spot with yet more shops. 

The LLSB was a success. Visit their website to read all about it. And here is a good overall article in Vice.
