Saints and Sinners


In 2009, I received an invitation to join the Urban Art Collective ‘Saints and Sinners’ exhibition hosted at St. Martins Lane Hotel, curated by the gallery ArtRepublic.

My contribution to this project consisted of four original pieces delving into the intricate interplay between the saintly and sinful aspects inherent in each of us. Each 60cm x 80cm artwork served as a visual narrative, poignantly exploring the complexities within familial ties. These pieces portrayed family members as both saints and sinners, capturing the inherent tension and harmony within familial relationships—a visual representation of the universal truth that we all embody both light and shadow.

The deliberate choice of Perspex as the artistic medium served as symbolic windows into the essence of my home and the individuals who define it. The decision to utilize silkscreen on double Perspex sheets was not just a technical choice but also a conceptual one. Screenprinting, deeply rooted in the urban art scene, added another layer of significance.

The exhibition also featured renowned artists from various countries, including Nick Walker, Adam 5100, Logan Hicks, Mr. Brainwash, Broken Crow, C215, Asbestos, Sten & Lex, Kosiec, Blek Le Rat, D*Face, and others.

These artworks are no longer available.
