Had the privelage to work on an upmarket restaurant called "Arras" mid last year. I was working in conjunction with interior designer Elizabeth Boyd, and had to design a canvas set and mural to fit in with the upmarket atmosphere. You can check out the restaurant here:
An hour spent with Nom and Acena in a comunidade, in São Bernardo, São Paulo. These areas are better known as "favelas" to those of you in Western countries. A session I won't forget. Also some throw up action, although in a different place
Favela Chic hostel in Foz De Iguaçu, South Brasil asked me to turn an old camper van into a functional piece of art.
One for the road.
Probably the last production I'll do in Scotland for a while. Part of a larger wall with Cam One, Gazmac, Power, Estum and Rogue.
This piece is from a larger wall I completed the other day with Estum (Glasgow) on my home turf. Epik from Bulgaria also dropped a shaman character at the top. I also painted a big Aztec statue. You can view the full production here:
Decided to do something completely different, no pieces, no traditional graf elements, just a big Sci Fi landscape. Painted partly with Yoke.
A quick piece, sometimes you just can't get enough green. Although in this case, maybe you can
knocked this out the other day, shouts to Yoke, Pubsy, Devel, Phibs etc
Bar Contessa is a cool wee cafe on Darling St, Balmain. They have just re-branded, so wanted a mural to make their cafe stand out. Here is what I came up with.

Australian Motocross champion Daniel McCoy has opened up his own store, Sixty Five, in Campeltown, Sydney. I provided him with some typo treatment and helped to brighten up the new store with a different take on some well known Motocross logos. Check out his facebook store page here:
Within the new Westfield shopping centre at Pitt Street in Sydney's CBD lie many intersting and nicely designed shops. One of these is Hart & Heim, a shop selling lots of cool gadgets and intersting pieces for the home with a distinct underground design feel. The shop was designed by Winnie Chong, they commisioned me to do something intersting and different with the concrete pillars. They wanted some "urban grunge". This is the result.
Promotional event for Blackberry phones, the idea was simple and effective, take 3 wrecked cars and tag them up with Blackberry slogans, then insert them into the venue to give it some street flavour. I also supplied a graffiti font for their Gobo display. The event was the brainchild of Lampoon Agency, check out their site at www.lampoon.com.au
