This is a video of me painting photo realism for the recent Converse campaign. This wall was painted in Shoreditch with Best Ever. This was a nationwide campaign, encouraging the return of hand painted advertising. I was involved with the London and Manchester walls. I now have a new found hatred for scissor lifts!

This is a mural painted in a primary school playground. I worked with artist Alex Martinez on this project producing a garden of Eden image as requested by the school. We wanted to make the wall look like the bricks had fallen away exposing a beautiful, tropical paradise. We had a very receptive audience during break-times with rows of children sitting behind us watching the image unfold, clapping and cheering.
Commissioned by Brighton & Hove council the James Brown memorial piece covers a three storey building in central Brighton. Painted two days after his death with Odisy and Aroe, we chose images from his different album covers. A sad but funny day as we could hear passers by shouting 'I'm a sex machine, huh!' and 'ow, hit me' amongst many other famous sayings from the godfather of soul.

Tizer One was kindly asked to customize Malcolm Mclaren's Casket
"The boombox was an homage to the Duck Rock album cover painted by Legendary New York Graffiti Artist Dondi produced by Malcom Mclaren." - Tizer One
"Too fast to live and too young to die was a slogan used in the first boutique with Vivienne Westwood, at age 67 it pretty much says it all. What an honour. Rest in peace Malcolm." - Tizer One
