Been doing lots more Tattoos again recently after a long and very hectic winter of Graffiti work. Days off have been few and far between….. Due to this I’ve built up a bit of a waiting list so thank you everyone for your patience! My diary is still hectic but I’m now juggling a lot more Tattoo work in middle of it all, so if you would like to discuss a project please get in touch.
Here’s a pic of some work in progress…. freehand background added to Kieran’s mandala that I did last year. More sessions on this piece coming soon. You can check the Tattoo section of the site for more pics.
Took a little detour whilst on a trip to the Gower for a long weekend and found myself in Swansea painting with my old mucker BIRD. Its been too long since we painted a wall together… after some classic night-before “so what we gonna do?” conversations, we used some good old classic BODE characters from the comic Sunpot. Making an appearance on the wall are General Farkfoot, The screw, Electric Bee and a fuel screw. Those that know…. know.
Had this trailer in the scrappy’s in mind for a piece for a long time… an amazing background and texture to work on once it was given a good rub down with a stiff wire broom to vacate the plantlife growing on it! Such a great place to spend the day!
Thanks to the Way’s as always, back soon!

First day of the year painting in a tee shirt….. From a few weeks back in Swindon, met up for a social wall session with Zare, Gutoe, Devas, Amie, Shimz and Ryder… the Swindon / Worcester / Bristol / Cardiff connection. Cracking day with good company, more of the pieces and Dr Suess characters in the Walls section. Click here
This was a pretty cool job to do, a brand new kids play-centre / shop opened up in Cardiff and wanted their upstairs pimped out in a Farmyard / chicken coop kind of style. After a few discussions we decided a classic “Foghorn Leghorn” theme would fit the bill nicely, and really good fun to paint too! This idea then crept onto the stairs, and extra signs for the shop downstairs too…
Thanks to the guys at “Funky little chicks” for the work. Anyone with small kids go check ‘em out! Here’s part of the upstairs mural…
Headed to London’s famous Abbey Road to paint at a gathering of artists paying tribute to ROBBO, who is currently in a coma and will hopefully recover. Painted Alongside Kilo, Skore and Crok… Top line up on the day, with many walls painted by UK graffiti legends. Pieces were painted by Zaki dee, Drax, Merc, Corze, Anik, Fuel, Diet, Zomby, Mean, Teach, Akt and more… all paying respect.
Was great to be a part of, Get well soon Robbo!! Here’s the Sinstars section.. Kilo / Best . Skore… more pics in the walls section.
Another recent commission in Blackwood… great project, still ongoing, a couple more bits to add around the side and the back. This is on the pavilion near the showfield in the area, a great prominent spot. Thanks to Colour Doomed for helping out.
Headed to London back in February to check the solo exhibition of new work by the legend that is TIZER… one of the freshest Graffiti artists around and a really nice guy to boot! The show was a smash, with a huge turnout and loads of familiar faces. After a bit of a heavy night, we re-grouped in the morning and painted the Leake st Hall of fame under Waterloo station.
Great pieces dropped by all… in order, Hemper, Best, Soker, Cheo and Tizer. Also painting were Amoe and Rmer. Thanks to Tizer for a great weekend… always a pleasure!

Nothing beats a good spot to paint walls on… and this is a fine spot indeed! I was stopped a while ago whilst painting a commission in Cardiff by a man inquiring about the work, and the possibility of having his wall painted. After a conversation about prices etc, we came to the understanding that if I had complete control over the nature of the artwork, and if the spot was fairly high-profile, then he would not be charged for the work. He gave me his address to take a look… and that was that. After a lengthy amount of time I finally went to see his wall, and lo and behold it was literally right next to a train station platform. Not a bad spot for a bit of good old fashioned Graffiti. I invited my friend NEWS to come along and rest is history. Expect more pieces from this spot in the future…. click here to view the whole wall
Another trip to the valleys… this time with Colour, and also Zly from Mexico city in tow. We painted over a piece I had previously painted on this trailer… thought it needed a splash of colour to cheers up Jeff and his family who work there. Zly specialises in photo-realistic work while Colour is more of the twisted-character school. After lugging up the platforms/scaff/ladders/paint to the spot, we were in a rush to finish before it got dark, hence we were hoping to do more with the background but such is life. Still a great day in my favorite playground!
