Moving on, goodbye wordpress

I struggle to keep this blog updated!

There’s a wealth of social media out there and some of it is more suited to my needs than others. Being a visual person I find Tumblr and Instagram more stimulating that my wordpress blog so I’ll be closing this down over the next few weeks.

If you’d like to keep up with news on shows n stuff:

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Craww.Art

for news and stuff I find inspiring/stimulating:

Tumblr: http://crawwstuff.tumblr.com

for general stuff, works in progress, sketches and probably too many pics of trees:

instagram: http://instagram.com/craww

I keep them all updated regularly, especially IG, which is addictive!

Thanks!

“Stigmata” – new screen print available 31st October 10am

Hi folks, just posting with a preview of my new print “Stigmata” that drops tomorrow, 31st Oct at 10am (UK time). It’s my first screen print and I’m very excited with the results!

It’s a 5 layer print with gold detailing, printed on 300gsm deckle edged Somerset Satin paper, signed, numbered edition of 35 and priced at £145. The print will be available exclusively at delamain arts

Printed by Jealous Print in London I think it’s looking pretty special, hopefully you agree!

Craww @ DeLaMain Arts

A little update on some news. I’m stoked to be working with delamain arts who have some of my recent paintings and drawings available through their site at www.delamainarts.com

We are also working on a few exciting projects, the first of which is a new print. My first screenprint, it’s looking pretty special and drops in a few days. I’ll post more details closer to the release!

Until then, here are a couple of original paintings that are available through the site

New work @ Spoke Art SF

So I’ve got a bunch of new work completed since the show at CAVE, and I’m really excited to have 2 new paintings available at Spoke Art in San Francisco.

“Curious Idolatry” and “Reversed Memories” are both acrylic on Rives BFK, pics below and more details on the Spoke site here.

In other news, I’ve been messing around with oil paints. I’m really enjoying the challenges and opportunities of working with a new medium. As I (hopefully) start to get to grips with it I’ll be posting pic – I think the different approach to painting will add a new dimension to my work, but we shall see…

Murder/Gave up the Ghost

Just a quick update with a couple of paintings I’ve completed recently. Hope you like ‘em:

New work @ Fine Grime 4th – 6th May

Just a quick post to mention that I have some new work showing at Fine Grime Gallery in Bath this weekend.

It’s looking like a really fun show, with a bunch of awesome artists in a great venue. Check it out if you are in the area.

I have 2 paintings on show, both are a little different to previous work (well, they feel different to me!) as i think they have more detail than I usually paint. I think having spent so much time sketching recently, the line work has started to influence the way i paint.

I’m really pleased with how they turned out and I’m hoping to mess with the balance of detail/mess in future work.

CRAWW @ C.A.V.E. gallery LA, March 10th – April 7th

So it’s the last few days before I fly out to LA for the opening of the group show at CAVE gallery. It’s great to be showing at CAVE again – they did such a good job with my last show there back in December ’10 (man, time goes sooooo fast).

The show opens March 10th and is on view through April 7th and I’m honoured to be showing alongside John Park and Christopher Cuseo with 6 new paintings.

I’m really excited about the show and the new pieces. I approached it wanting to produce a cohesive body of work and worked through a bunch of stuff in my Moleskine before settling on an idea. Working around a theme of “Threads” I’m really stoked with how they’ve turned out. 3 of the pieces are also a lot larger than I’ve painted previously so I was working a little bit outside of my comfort zone!

And as my Moleskine was such an intrinsic part of the process, I thought it would be cool to mark the show by giving away one of the graphite studies done in preparation for the show. I’ll be announcing details over the next 2 or 3 days, so if you want a chance to get your hands on a unique piece of OG art watch this space, or better still, sign up for updates through my site at www.craww.com

Yay for free stuff!

Here’s a taste of the new work, “Faith”:
