The notion then, the thought that a painting should be completed every day during 2017, not started, just brought to a conclusion. Pieces that have been evolving over days, weeks, sometimes years. A smaller piece a day (there are bigger pieces of work in progress, it isn’t all about these smaller pieces coming to a conclusion every day)

The What Price Art? question go on, I expect this one will carry on throughout the year as well. The third weekly posting of a piece of work on e.bay happened last Wednesday. Each week a piece posted on the auction site with a piece posted weekly at an opening bid price of 1p, each piece left there for a week and what price art? You decide. The third piece is currently up on-line, there to be bid on, view it here

This week’s What Price Art piece is a had painted piece of 7″ vinyl (that’s it up there), painted on an old ORG Records release, an old Gog Magog single from back in the days when we were foolish enough to run a record label. One of the finest releases ever, I might just throw in an unpainted copy of the single as well, a classic slice of London punk rock,,,. Go explore ebay, put my name in the search engine, I’m sure you’ll find it (as well as a number of other reasonably priced pieces of art from myself and other Cultivate associated artists)

Clearing out the cobwebs, having a look back at…

Spring cleaning today, clearing up the website, clearing out the studio, clearing out the cobwebs, having a look back at the last few productive years. There’s a whole album of selected pieces from the last six years – paintings, pieces, art drops, leaves, pieces left hanging on walls, paintings in galleries, boxes in the street, old growth, new growth, things evolving, been a busy last six or so years – the #365ArtDrop piece, the maximalism down Vyner Street, the #43 pieces of 2016, thousands of pieces of art, a hundred or more shows curated, good to take a step back and view it all as one body or productiveness…
