Artist's description:

The painting is unframed, but is ready to hang. Supports are attached to the rear, which project the painting off the wall by about an inch, providing a nice shadow around the work.

The idea to do a series of work about New York was inspired by my honeymoon in 2013, (which is why my wife features as model in several paintings!). Many great artists have a New York connection and I wanted to have that as a theme running through the series by including a nod to several of those artists whose work I admire. Some of the artist connections are more obvious, such as the Jackson Pollocksky in ‘City of Ambition’ and the repetition of the statue of liberty portraits in the style of Andy Warhol’s screen prints.

Why paint on OSB?

One of the best things about street art, for me, is that you can be walking around doing everyday things and be surprised by a piece of art in a corner somewhere. It’s difficult to get the same sense of surprise in a gallery or a home; people go to a gallery or see something hanging on a wall in a home and expect to see art. But it might be just a little surprise to see the paintings on an everyday building material, such as OSB. By leaving it obvious that my artwork is on chipboard, it gives it a rough, industrial, textural feel; as if it has been removed from a wall outside and brought in.
