Fresh November growth from the East London bunker, fresh layers on smaller deep-edge canvas pieces, 20cm x 20cm, along with “Fourth & Broadway” a silk screen and spray paint piece on a 12″ record sleeve… All pieces heading to the Angus Hughes Gallery next week

We are not your cash cows… Of far more importance are the shoes people wear, whole series of photos via this link – S is for Shoes in The Gallery, three years of people walking on the floor at Cultivate. and the notions of a book, an A to Z of the who, what, where and a recording of the three year chapter that was the Vyner Street period of the Cultivate adventure
