MY NEW PRINTS ARE HERE

After years of being asked to make some prints, they’re here! It took me a while to chose the format, the sizes, the type, the images, and now I’m ready. This is quite likely to be an ongoing thing if it goes well.

NEW PRINTS!

My new prints are all set! I've painted the piece yesterday in Waterloo in high def, making sure one took a picture before I changed it, so only 10 people will be able to get a print of it! And 2 are already reserved.

They will be available tomorrow in A1 and A4. Limited edition of 5 each.

They will be available later in unlimited postcards.

If these are popular, i might make originals and prints a regular thing...

PRINTS

Hello internet,

For a very long time I’ve been asked to do some prints, as well as original artwork.

However I decided to follow a custom artist path, which is to respond to a client’s demand to paint what they want as opposed to painting something of my own choosing. And it has been and it is great fun, but now I decided to also follow the true path of an artist, which is to do my original artwork. From walls to originals and prints.

I had a meeting yesterday with an old client of mine I hadn’t seen in ages, and he said to pop by so we can talk about prints, as he’s had a printing business for years and he was convinced he could offer me a superior quality than the competition with a followed service, from printing to packaging and shipping. Not only was I so impressed with the quality of the work produced but also it made me want to shoot better, from the photo shoot to the artwork in the street. It was so convenient to use a little point and shoot camera, but when I saw the result printed in A1 with it compared to the shots taken with “Big Daddy” (Nikon D810) I realised how important the quality of the detail is. Please note I’m so critical of my work, all the shots I’m using for my prints, regardless of the camera used has to be spot on. If there are some pieces of artwork or photographs I love, but the quality isn’t the best (but still decent) they will most likely be printed in a smaller format as an unlimited print. But this is the job for this early morning, 6am, figuring out the print sizes, quantity and prices.

This is new and exciting, take the journey with me!

Ray, Chef.

I ate at banhbaobrothers a few times and it was always top notch food. And the other day I went to take a picture of Ray the chef, after they very kindly gaves us some food as we were painting. I saw him in his outfit and I thought he would make a nice painting. So a few days later, one of my models cancelled at the last minute, so I went to paint in the local graffiti spot aka Waterloo Leake street.

It was a lot of fun to paint and I’m really happy about the result!

Sticky hands on a photoshoot

So Yesterday I met Lana from Russia, and we did a photoshoot in the baking heat of my studio. Thank goodness for the fan that my friend lent us and the black curtain on the window stopping some of the heat.

It was actually interesting, as this was the 1st time in about 2 years where I did makeup on a shoot, and I was pleased with the results, The hair was Ok but I should really have had a hairdryer to hold the hairspray, and with the heat, it was tricky.

Nonetheless, Lana was great and patient, and as I was shooting very tight headshots, everydetail was important, from hand placement to the strands of hair and everything else. Having to go back and forth to wash my hands (from the oil and the hair spray) from touhing her hair and the camera.

Here are a few unedited shots.

Painting in Shoreditch

Yesterday I was in London Shoreditch painting a portrait of Darron whom I took pictures of 2 days ago. I’m really happy of how it turned out and I will be posting a Vlog to my Youtube in a few days.

It was a lot of funn painting alongside fellow Frenchman Nerone whom paints neon style graffiti. This place got quite busy, pretty quickly as we were painting in full view of the high street.

Big thank you to GSA for providing this quality wall!


Today's photoshoot with Darron

I did a photoshoot today with a Darron in my studio, and it was a great session. We got about 300 pictures, not because we were struggling to get it right but more because we were having fun. We tried different color gels and different types of lighting from strobes to natural light, as we were just finishing just in time for the Golden hour. I will be painting a picture from the shoot to paint tomorrow in east London.
