A couple more images from the Extraordinary Measures show which is on at the moment in Belsay, Northumberland - this time showing the final work in situ as well. The last installation, School Trip, was placed on the visitor's scale model of the hall and grounds - the graffiti is still there too, English Heritage haven't buffed it yet :)A new book that I am featured in, Beyond The Street: The 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art by Patrick Nguyen and Stuart Mackenzie, is available now. It really is a brilliant book which not only weighs a tonnes but also has a tonne of photos and interviews with loads of amazing people from artists such as Jose Parla, Swoon, Judith Supine, and Blu, to websites like Wooster Collective, magazines such as Juxtapoz, as well as galleries, auction houses, web forums and art festivals. I am very proud to have been featured and if i could recommend one book about the tricky-to-pin-down street/urban art 'scene', this would be it.
-----------------If you are in Los Angeles, check out the group show Booked at Carmichael Gallery. It opened this weekend at runs until 3rd July. It features a few of my pieces, alongside a load of other work by the guys listed on the flyer below, and a selection of books by the artists featured as well as many more.
