Mode 2 at the Flow Festival, Helsinki 10th of August

Just a short late night post to let you all know that I’ll be showing some work, old and new, at the Make Your Mark Gallery, as part of the Flow Festival; here in Helsinki.

The opening for the show is this Friday 10th of August at 5pm, and I’ll be back again at the venue on Saturday at 2pm for a live performance in the garage, which will go on until about 8pm.

Should you be in the vicinity, you only need check the links above, in order to find me!

      The spray-can was adopted by my generation to be used like a pencil and brush, so as to allow us to draw letters or characters as we would on paper. New generations are taking it elsewhere, though I’m personally not a big fan of low pressure cans and transparent colours for shading. They would be useful for commercial work maybe, but as a general rule, I like pieces to look as if they could have been done illegally, and in low light…

      If you don’t leave a link to your work, I can’t check it out ;-)!

    Mode 2, where can I find more of your “Filth and the Fabric” peices? I’d really like to pick one up for a wall in my apartment!!

      You should get in touch with the Lazarides Gallery, check in the links section, and ask them about it. Some have been sold, some not, but I think there are a few that may still be in storage. Please contact me via e-mail next time for such matters, rather than just posting it in the comments section.

      Thanks for your support :-)

      Try at Lazarides. They have some paintings in storage from that series. I don’t know what budget you have though…

    it was a rare and completely unexpected pleasure to discover your works in this hidden garage gallery during flow festival. did not mean to intrude your work in process, but could not resist the opportunity to say hello.

      I was not in the least bit bothered by anybody with something constructive to say. We come from a background of painting in much more challenging situations, and a few of us have a long history of live painting performance.
      It was a pity that the garage was hidden by that big yellow Radio Helsinki truck, which we just couldn’t get moved, as they had hooked up all their cabling on the first day they had parked it there, a few days before the festival…

    Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and detailed information you offer.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds
    to my Google account.
