I was commissioned to create a series of work for this exhibition in Bristol which is connected to the ‘Free Party : A Folk History’ film, scheduled for release in 2023. I also had one of my exhibition pieces chosen for a billboard and shown outside the venue.

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.

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 and replace the world famous skate spot with even more shops. 

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