Press Shizzle

April 22, 2012



Woah, been ages since I updated this. So much to say, too lazy to say it. I’ll start with a couple of magazines that ran me on the front cover last month, 2 different types of art magazines but I guess you could say each one reflects a strand of my work. First up Irish Arts Review, a mag focusing on broad range of Irish art (above photo courtesy of Will St Leger) . And then of course graffiti and street art specialist VNA, a favourite of mine for a long time. Cover shoot thanks to Shamil Tanna.

And finally here’s a nice vid from film-maker Joao Retorta that we did during the shoot.

Modern Painters – The Gangster

October 19, 2010

There’s a nice feature in the current Modern Painters about Steve Laz and the gallery. Thats not me on the cover but thats me on the bottom right.


July 8, 2010

Everybody here at Conor HQ (a multinational think tank of coffee-drinking dreamers) is delighted with our feature in this months Blueprint (‘The Leading Magazine of Architecture and Design’ dontcha know). They did a nice feature on my recent trip to Israel and Palestine.

I’m on the telly

September 15, 2009

Tim_and_Paul_Smith_mediumNo no, its not the 6th season of The Wire with my much speculated starring role as Jimmy McNulty’s younger cousin over from Ireland to clean up the streets of West Baltimore by, er.. painting them. Its a new series on Sky Arts entitled ‘Tim Marlow Meets’ where Mr Marlow (above left), director of exhibitons at London’s White Cube, meets a number of creative figures to discuss their favourite works of art.

The series includes film director Mike Leigh, American crooner Tony Bennett, funny Python and wonderful wanderer Michael Palin, singer Renee Fleming and British fashion legend Sir Paul Smith. Mr Smith (above right) has bought one of my pieces from Weekend Warriors (below) so hopefully he’ll say something nice.


You can watch a 3 minute clip of the show here  or if you’re old school you can watch it when it goes out on Sky Arts 1 this Thurs at 8.30pm.

Failed Rockstar interview

June 13, 2009

blog_51Theres an interview with me and Chloe over on Failed Rockstar. You should really check out this site. Rob, a great painter in his own right, has re-launched Failed Rockstar with incredibly indepth interviews. They’re a welcome addition to the 5 second, snappy online interview world so keep checking back as theres loads more to come.

GQ and Me

June 13, 2009


Totally late with this post. I’m listed in the June issue of GQ under ’10 artists you should know by now’, yippee. ‘The thinking man’s Street Artist’ – hell yeah – t-shirts coming soon! nah maybe not. Anyway, this issue is no longer in the shops. And the guy on the cover isn’t actually me, although we do have similar facial hair and I do normally have those women draped all over me. Fun times.

Hello Poland

May 28, 2009


I’ve a quick interview over on Polish site Maggnes, hopefully it translates ok.

‘Chasing Castles’ @ Kinsey/Desforges

March 16, 2009


Greetings and apologies. Its been months since I got off my ass to update this ol blog. And it was all going so well but what can I say, I’ve been hibernating. Mad busy in the studio, I’m getting ready for my next show. It opens in LA on April 18th at Kinsey/Desforges. It’ll be a 2 person show with Chloe so we’re doing 7 pieces each. I’ll be out there for a week or so, it’ll be our first trip to the west coast so I’m super excited and hopefully I’ll get a nice wall painted too. I’ll pop up some images here closer to the time.


Also just out is the Spring issue of Citizen K. Its a lovely fat French fashion and arts magazine and this issue has a special British feature. I’m not British but my work deals with issues of empire and power so my 4 pages are nicely tucked in between interviews with fashion designer Paul Smith   and taxidermy artist Polly Morgan. The interview is written in french so I hope they said something nice about me.

So what other news do I have. Lots of nice things in the pipeline for the rest of the year. Print releases, walls, another trip to my buddies at Studio Cromie in Grottaglie (Angelino, tell those vineyards to start producing extra vino and those gelaterias to go heavy on the nocciola e ciocolato). And of course I’ve also got my 3rd London solo show at Laz coming up before the end of the year and as usual there are plenty of exciting Laz related things on the way.

I also hope to start blogging more regularly about non-me stuff like music and gigs and I don’t know, other stuff. But hey, I am a world champion procrastinator so I’ll probably never get around to any of this but you never know.

The Lazarides Extravaganza Shut-Down Show

November 6, 2008


This is the catalogue from the Lazarides Extravaganza, the raffle during Frieze Art Fair that was never to be. Legal laws prevented the raffle from going ahead so instead we put on a show at the Charing Cross space featuring all the works as well as burlesque performances and gnome bowling. Nice.  




My pages from the book..
