New print release at Multiplied 2014
I recently shot an installation outside of The Bank of England which will be shown by Andipa Gallery at Multiplied 2014 art fair held at Christies in London. Titled Tug of War, this new image represents the age-old battle between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots', summed up in a tug of war over a dropped £10 note.
To compliment this theme you can view the image at the show as a...

Andipa Gallery have released a new print of my work Stroll.
"Stretching alongside the banks of the Moscow River, Gorky Park is one of the most celebrated places in Moscow, Russia. A rare urban retreat in the heart of an overcrowded and congested city. Built in 1928, this park holds entertainment for tourists and Muscovites alike and was the location for Slinkachu's exciting work Stroll."

Misfortunates book cover
I've made a book cover for Dimitri Verhulst's book The Misfortunates.

The installation wasn't left on the street like I usually would as I had to shoot a few versions of the cover, but fear not - I am in Antwerp in May, where...
