2012 movie ‘Pusher’ features Shoreditch graffiti ‘Clowns & Jokers’
I make almost all of my own videos, making time lapse animations of my paintings, or production stories.
What can I say?
We (the Brum 6) beat London on their turf. Our squad was made up of myself, Agent and Just Glen. We had very little preparation for the night, Agent was arriving very late, 45 minutes before the battle and there was little space left in the Village Underground when we got there. More pictures (and a beautiful video) after the jump…
You may or may not have noticed that I’ve launched version 4 of my cubic experiment. A wooden built construction that you walk inside, through a door. The experiment is meant to be experienced by one single person standing in the very centre of the space, this time wearing 3D glasses.
The effect makes all of the corners (and floor and walls) vanish almost impossibly.
Its running for two more weekends until Sunday 14th November. If you can’t make it down on the weekends, I could make arrangements for you to see it during the week.
Video appears after the jump.
When I began working on this painting I knew it was going to be something new, a new technique must apply.
For ages I’ve been seeing the work of some pavement artists rendered in chalk (attached as a Word document or on one of those ’10 amazing…’ sites). All the works have to be made stretched to accommodate the point of view, or plane distortion.
Making the floor seem to become another surface or even vanish completely.
Last year I had the good fortune of being invited to take part in the inaugural graffiti exhibition to occur on the infamous white isle.
I painted a large piece at the venue with Inkie and this video surfaced only this week (see below), with interviews from myself, Inkie and special guest Shoe from the Netherlands who happened to be visiting the island.
Watch this space for Urban in Ibiza 2010!
It was 12 years ago, to the day almost, that the final touches were being put to my first animated music promo. It was completed in the Truman building on Brick Lane, East London with help from Matt who owned the suite, and my good friends Kris and Matt from Birmingham. Its digitised from a VHS copy, so its not the sharpest image.
It was for an outfit called ‘ZUM’ from Stafford, who were partly responsible for the band known as ‘Blue Boy’ with the tune ‘Remember Me?’ (using the sample from Marlena Shaw’s ‘Women of the Ghetto’). The brief was a ‘modern scooby-doo’, see what you think…
You may remember I painted a version of the lucky painting for the launch of Guy Ritchie’s new film, now released on DVD.
A friend of mine said that he saw my sticker in the film, and when I went I couldn’t see it, now I’ve seen it again, and sure enough there it is, after Johnny Quid chats about the cigarette box on the piano, in the pub scene. Its about two thirds of the way through.
This footage was given to me as a timelapse by a downhill mountain biking DVD magazine that was down there filming for their latest issue. The Royal Racing brand was devised by Nick Bayliss and Steve Peat, both incredibe riders and Nick was the name behind Moves Clothing, which I worked on for about 10 years.
