Canvas and prints at 12 Days of Xmas show


I will have some work in the 12 Days Of Xmas group show in Bristol which opens on 12th December.

I have Giclee prints and very ltd edition screen prints available there along with the rarity that is an Andy Council original canvas - you don't get many of them to the pound. The canvas is 'Edmontractoria', a dinosaur made up of tractors (see pic above).


Last year was the first 12 Days of Xmas exhibition, it was held in Bristol's former Bridewell Police Station, and was hugely successful, attracting over 4,000 visitors over the 12 days.

This year they've taken over an old motorcycle showroom in the heart of Bristol's Stokes Croft and once again will mixing up art from some street arts leading lights with exciting up and coming artists.

Featuring 70 of the world's most loved & loathed contemporary urban / street / graffiti artists...

Venue: 15 -19 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3PY

Opening night: Friday 12th December - 7pm-10pm

Then open: Everyday from Saturday 13th December - 12pm-7pm

Painty Mammoth at Children Of The Can Jam


Painted as part of huge production at the new museum of Bristol to mark the launch of the book Children Of The Can - 25 years of Bristol Graffiti. I was asked to start the timeline with a cave painting inspired piece. The stick cave painting figures are having second thoughts about attacking the huge Painty Mammoth with their paint brush spears!

Was quite a fun piece to do as I have been wanting to evolve from Dinosaurs to giant prehistoric mammals for a while.

Wasn't sure what colours would be available, so turned out very bright. Think if to do it again would go for lots of shdes of red and orange and more spray outlines than brush. It was very cold so didn't want to experiment too much!

Very big thankyou to Felix for inviting me to paint and shout outs to all the Bristol and West Country Writers/Artists who took part in this epic jam.

Here's my line drawing I was working from which shows the whole of the beast!
