No Place Like Home

Here are my set of 6 'PLACE' mats- Geddit?
They look real nice I think, as does the whole exhibition at Ella Dorans Cheshire St shop in E2.

You now have an opportunity to place your bid on a collection of artist designed placemats. Once you have decided on your favourite simply email and include the word 'BID' in the title. In the email give the name of the artist and collection you would like to bid on and the amount you would like to bid. Please note there is a minimum bid on each set of 6 placemats of £30 and remember all the profits go to the Shelter charity.

Excitement in the Wick

Outside my studio, Dace Road in Hackney Wick has been taken over by a huge film unit filming a commercial for Adidas. Its amazing how the art department have transformed the street, they have covered up all the graffiti and bill poster covered walls and doors and replaced them with fake graffiti and bill poster covered walls and doors! Anyway theres lots of dancing in the streets and trendy young things in brightly coloured sports wear racing around on fixed wheel bikes and skateboards. I even saw a mini camera mounted on a Frisbee which was most impressive. Word on the street was that Jay Z was coming down but I think that's all hokum.
We had Ciara here yesterday, but who is this lady with the 'Hollywood smile' being given the star treatment? Checkout the security guy, he's wearing a wire!

Here is a picture of a bike trying to hide in the corridor of my studios.

And here is a rough version of a new print I am developing. Its a homage to the now demolished Eastway Cycle Circuit.
