It was on show at the Arts fems exhibition at Central St Martins School of Art in Kings cross, London as a part of LGBTQI Month in February. Due to the success of the show the dates were extended. Then due to the negligence of the curators the work has mysteriously vanished. 


The piece in question has a market value of £10,000 GBP. 


It depicts the Artist’s bare chest with a Pink upturned Triangle entitled “ In Memoriam” The work was originally made in 2015. 


The Artist has said he is saddened of it’s disappearance and hopes it can be returned home to his studio for the prosperity of the nation. 


The work was sold as prints at HOMOPROMO Hosted by Herman Miller, Holborn, London  in Aid of Stonewall in Autumn 2017. The prints raised lots of funds for this great charity. However now the original has gone missing. 


He has created a poster of the missing and valuable Art work which commemorates, documents, empowers and memorialises a very dark time in Queer and Global History. He has asked for it to be shared far and wide on social media. To help find this important work. The Art work was due to go on display for another exhibition. 


He is taking legal advice on the missing Art work. 


“A pink triangle has been a symbol for various LGBTQ identities, initially intended as a badge of shame, but later reclaimed as a positive symbol of self-identity. In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, it began as one of the Nazi concentration camp badges, distinguishing those imprisoned because they had been identified by authorities as homosexual men,[1] a category that also included bisexual men and transgender women.[2] In the 1970s, it was revived as a symbol of protest against homophobia, and has since been adopted by the larger LGBT community as a popular symbol of LGBT pride and the LGBT rights movement.[3][4]

THIRST FURSDAY @ CHELSEA COLLEGE OF ART

The first Thursday of the month is a traditional time for gallery show openings. While considering this date for our exhibition, our internationally-diverse group of artists began to discuss the symbolic representations across cultures for the days of the week. In the Asian culture, Thursdays are represented by the symbol of a tree. In Western culture, the tree is a symbol for knowledge. We all agreed that as art students, we are in pursuit of knowledge. Then the discussion got less intense, and we agreed to call this show Thirst Fursdays!

MFA @ CHELSEA COLLEGE OF ART LONDON

I'm pleased to announce that i have been accepted onto the Fine Art Masters at Chelsea College of Art starting in October 2018. This has been a long term goal for myself to finally afford the space, time and money and shear genius to be accepted on such a prestigious course.  I have spent the greater part of my  Artistic career living in London but after being rejected by the Royal College of Arts in around 2007, I almost gave up hope of ever being able to progress to such an institution. Now I will gracefully join the ranks of Artist's including David Hockney, Richard Deakon, Patrick Caulfield, Elazabeth Fink, Anthony Caro, Franko B, Anish Kapoor, Helen Chadwick, Rebbeca Warren, Gillian Wearing and of course Dirk Bogard ! Name dropping aside the chance to study and work with a new generation of Artists and my contemporaries next to Tate Britain and further develop and expand my practice to a wider audience will be a life changing and challenging year ! I can't wait !

FANFARE - OOMPAH OOMPAH

LA MAISON BLEUE  PENTECOSTE @ VIC FEZENSAC, FRANCE 2018 

WEEKEND OF 18TH TO 21ST MAY.

" FANFARE " it will be an absolute pleasure to document and dissect a very French festival in rural France one which I have been a lucky outsider to witness for over 15 years.... Pentecoste is the festival of the birth of the Church 49 days after Easter and commemorates the descent of the holy spirit in this small part of rural #France this #festival is celebrated by drinking shit loads of french wine, a combustion of #fanfare bands, the eating of foie gras and unfortunately the killing of #bulls in the arena( I am a Tauren btw ) . #Political, #religious and #ethical and brexit issues will be set aside in this exhibition instead the #celebration of #life #music and #dancing will be the main points of the show, cultural differences and the current #european issues will be set aside in a show of love is for all and #music is my first love.

(Side note note to this, I don't think I'm capable of making work which in some way is not provocative or does not raise issues however it will all be fun fun !!!)
