Invited by Abbeydale brewery to design the label, Keg and Cask clips for their collaboration with Vibrant Forest brewery. Always happy to translate my wave pattern onto different surfaces.
Large-scale commission for Adidas at their UK Headquarters in Stockport. In the huge stairwell leading to their showrooms and gym in a converted factory. The brief required two feature walls and various pieces of text, all tied together with monochromatic geometry to represent Adidas, and sprawling nature to represent Reebok. I was brought on board by The Mural Artists as creative director and to paint the geometry of the Adidas section.
Commission with GDA Creative agency in Sheffield. They wanted me to do something with their logo, so I manipulated it for this result.
Commission to paint an external wall of Twenty Twenty Two bar located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. I used Trompe L’oeil to create a site-specific optical illusion piece.
Commercial commission in the brand new offices of UGP in Guisely, Leeds. I hand painted 6 feature walls displaying their company ethos. In addition, I painted their logo large scale at the reception and a large tie-in wall. I am due to be returning very soon to take photos now the building is in full use.
Colourful shop frontage created for Vulgar vintage fashion and taxidermy store on Division Street, Sheffield.
Commission with world renowned department store, Harrods in London. Located in the womens ‘Designer Studio’ womens fashion department as part of a large season change. Working from a basic brief and rough idea, I created these perfectly symmetrical stripes of decreasing thickness, using a greyscale colour palette. The lotus flower models were supplied by the art department and added last after the paint dripping effect was applied.
Installation for the Urban Impressions exhibition at 19 Greek Street, London. Curated by Creative Orchestra for the Metro. I was commissioned to produce an anamorphic, modified version of the Metro logo on the entrance reception walls. The finished piece immerses the general public as they enter and walk through to the upper floors of the exhibition. Thanks to Jelly London for the commission.
Major commission for The Festival Of the Mind, 2014, Sheffield.
A huge Anamorphic Typography piece, spanning five old department store windows which face outside onto the public footpath. Seven points of perspective run along the pavement spelling the words “More than just a department store”, encouraging the general public to interact with the installation. Curator Professor Vannesa Toumlin coined the slogan for Castle House, a once thriving co operative department store in the 60′s which has long since been empty. Three vast floors of this building were taken over for the festival and re-imagined into three separate exhibitions. I was one of twenty artists commissioned for the Sheffield Bazaar exhibition.
By far my most ambitious piece to date it was an extremely challenging and rewarding experience. Preparation was particularly challenging, transforming the old display windows into a pure white space. I also fabricated twenty different cuboid objects to place in the space. Many thanks to Ben Jackson, Tommy Wilson, Joseph Andrew, Ella Wildin, Felicity Hoy, Phlegm, and my bro’s Mick and Rich Lee for your help!
One of six artists to paint at the ‘Redbull Curates: HANTU’ event at the Leadmill, Sheffield
