A WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE FOR A LITTLE BIT OF WIN

‘A Whole lot of Trouble for a Little bit of Win’ is a new body of work I’ve been concentrating on over the summer. It’s based on my 2nd big photo shoot. Two of the paintings are currently on show at the Lazarides Bedlam exhibition, I’ll have 1 more big piece at the Rathbone later this month and finally I’ll be having a show of drawings and studies at The Outsiders early next year.

Hip hop nerds among you might recognize the title from a recent El P track and I thought it was the perfect sentiment to sum up the ideas in my work over the last few years. Big thanks to Joao Retorta for the behind the scenes film above, Alex De Souza and of course to photographer Eoghan Brennan and models Jaffar, Alan, Louis and Cody.
