Cardiff Tattoo convention

Here’s a few tattoos I made at the Cardiff Tattoo convention. Four of these designs were created in the studio using spray-paint, and then use as reference for the tattoos. Im finding ways of bringing my two disciplines together, which is taking me on a very interesting path! 

Riverside community mural

I had the pleasure of working alongside Riverside grows Wild and the local poet Hanan Issa on a community mural in Riverside a couple of months ago. The project was based on wild flowers and the community planting that the Grows Wild team have been doing in the local area. we came together to brainstorm ideas and discuss the mural with local residents to get ideas. Hanan Issa wrote a poem to accompany the mural, and it was painted over the course of 2 weeks. This is a great example of how a community can come together to improve their environment and make it truly their own. A please to be a part of!

Quirky Campers take 2..

Vans, vans and more vans! I’ve done a lot of vehicles this year. Here’s another job for the good guys at Quirky Campers following on from the commission at the end of last year, and painted along a similar vibe. People seem to like the tree scenes i do… there’s a constant battle to try and find different ways to do them so they all have their own identity. This one’s a winer!

Bug Jam 2017

Had a little escapade up to Northampton with my boy to paint a VW Bug live at the show. Great weekend full of Drag Racing, Monster trucks and generally hanging out after the painting. Quality-time Graffiti dad style! Painted on a hippy / 70’s beach vibe. 

Learn ’em young…

A cool job for some cool kids! Heidi asked us to create a mural of their kids creating a mural… well, tagging their names, which is a certainly a good start in the world of Graffiti! A fun little job to do… 

Van classics…

Painting this van has been around 3 years in the pipeline. A friend of ours has always wanted it painted, and distance, time, and life always got in the way. Finally we managed to get a date in the diary and bash out some classic Peaceful Progress trees on there. I paint these tree styles a lot for commissions, its hard to find new ways to do them, I tend to stick with the same formula and make subtle changes. If it aint’ broke… 

Trelai Park changing rooms

Last year I painted the changing room in Pontcanna, Cardiff as part of a regeneration scheme for Cardiff council. The project received a lot of positive press and received a great reaction from the public. I was approached again this year to continue the “Capital for Sport” theme and give the run-down changing rooms in Trelai the same treatment. We kept the same theme and style, depicting images of famous sportsmen from the area and reflecting on the local history. Here are a few pics of the project, featuring Steve Robinson, Ryan Giggs, Sam Warburton, A Roman (do some research), a Jockey and Horse (do some more research), and everyones favourite, the Welsh Dragon.
