Papergirl Birmingham

I'm exhibiting in this...

'Papergirl is a global project that aims to open the art world into the urban streets of everyday life. It is an intervention seeking to surprise people and to heartily upturn the notable predictability of day to day life.'

'The concept begins with an open call for art, welcoming anyone creatively minded to submit their drawings, paintings, screen prints, photographs, textiles, stickers, poems, zines… anything that can be rolled up and transported with ease.'

'Art is collected, exhibited, and then distributed on mass to an unsuspecting public, via an atmospheric array of honkingly exuberant and ravishingly roadworthy Brummies on bicycles.'

APRIL 2nd - 27th, @48Sheet, The Mailbox, Wharfside, Birmingham

Some artwork I'm mailing up...

Peepshow Collective's museum of Objects and Origins


Peepshowers at their museum shop

Alongside other Camberwell students, I was fortunate to be asked by my second year tutor, Luke Best, to help out at Pick Me Up graphic arts fair with the running of the 'Museum of Objects and Origins,' a exhibition space curated by the Peepshow Collective.

'The museum of Objects and Origins is a collection of artefacts including drawings, objects, prints and costumes. Exhibition items from an invented past, the collection is also a living, growing display as themed workshops create new works to fill the cabinets.'

Peepshow are a group of artists formed to support and work with each other in the forms of illustration, animation and art direction. Peepshow are Chrissie Macdonald, Luke Best, Andrew Rae, Lucy Vigrass, Jenny Bowers, Miles Donovan, Pete Mellor, Marie O’Connor, Elliot Thoburn and Spencer Wilson.

Printing workshop at weekend

I've done two days so far and two more days to go and I'm stoked to be a part of this. Thank you Peepshow

Fahrenheit 451 Illustration

'Frightening in its implications... Mr Bradbury's account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.' -The New York Times

Here is an illustration I did of the following caption from Ray Bradbury's distopian Science Fiction novel, Fahrenheit 451.

'The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden.'

'Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires. And he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames, never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid. Then Guy met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. And Guy Montag suddenly realised what he had to do... '
