Project Brief

Art Show



Montana paint pens, cardboard, & tea

...Showcasing not only some of the biggest names in the business, but also offering a glimpse beneath the surface into tomorrow’s most promising artists....

The collection for this particular art show consisted of working on cardboard. I had previously used Posterman markers and for this show I thought I would try Montana markers - largely due to economical considerations in that they were refillable and I could buy spare nibs as well.


I had outside work to get done which, thankfully, left me with only a week to come up with concepts and pieces. I had been a while since I had used markers for painting and only actually realised what I had forgotten in the show. I introduced a new medium - tea.




 The Truman Brewery, East London's revolutionary arts and media quarter, is home to a hive of creative businesses as well as exclusively independent shops, galleries, markets, bars and restaurants. For over twenty years the Truman Brewery has been regenerating its ten acres of vacant and derelict buildings into spectacular office, retail, leisure and event spaces.


The finely tuned mix of business and leisure has created an environment unique in London, making the Truman Brewery a destination in its own right.
