I finished a sculpture at Tynemouth Longsands beach yesterday by dipping it in the sea water. I’ve more images and this photographic series and they will be available as original photographic prints in the near future. Have a great week and come back soon for the next blog post. Cheers!
Advance planner for your calendar:
Yes, it is true we’ll have an exhibition in DegreeArt after our residency is over there, but here is one show I’ll be doing straight after.
I’ll be working on new projects in Unit 3 Projects space in London from 29th April to 26th May. Pop in to see me there as the work develops and come to the PV on Thursday 23rd May, 6-9pm.
Email to email@example.com if you’re planning a visit during the development stage.

Time has come for me to think after this long winter about what is it I want to achieve this season (a year for me begins in the late March). I’ve decided to investigate my roots and true desires in making art, hence I bring you a gesture of this thought, my first self-portrait.
No.1 artwork of this year is finished. It was started at the 2-day sculpting demonstration ‘Blueberry extraction from plaster’ at The Stone Space Gallery in Leytonstone, London, where I’ve currently another ‘Pearl’ Sculpture in the show – ‘artFORMS‘. Show closes on Sunday Jan 6th, 6pm. If you’re interested to have a similar event in your venue or gallery, contact me for details please. Thank you.
My lovely Curious Duke Gallery in London, which is freshly representing me has put up my organic sculptures on their website in the online shop. I’m very excited and this way I’d like to extend the invitation to you to have a look and buy your favourite piece! This is the exclusive way how to buy my work online ! Now my dear friends and followers in America, Canada, Italy and rest of the Europe, in the far India and China and beyond finally have a way to purchase my art, without being physically present in London. Many happy returns!
The series of From the Bottom of the Sea Sculptures are white sensual objects. Their silky-smooth exterior is contrasting with the textures tunnelling inside them. The light and the air come through from all directions making them irresistible to look in and explore the tunnels. They are comparable to pearls or other treasures that are found in the deepest secret places of oceans. Their titles are inspired like the sculptures themselves by the islands in Ria Formosa Natural Reserve in Portugal.
I’m doing some live grape extraction sculpting on Sunday 2nd September and Tuesday 4th September. You can find me inside the fantastic new Library and Community centre in Barking on both days from 1pm. Follow the signs. More information will be available at http://www.moltenfestival.org/ soon. More about grape extraction and my art here. For the brochure including the programme click this pdf. I’m looking forward to your visit.
Hello dear friends. I took part in “One Day’s Walk”, The Stone Space exhibition. It had a great response from the locals and the theme was to involve the community and the artist from Leytonstone (East London). You might already know that I enjoy taking ”From the Bottom of the Sea” sculptures out , even on my travels. In the past I had one with me in a desert in Emirates, in Margate on the beach, or back in Slovakia… For this exhibition, I had taken one of my “From the Bottom of the Sea” sculpture out to Leytonstone’s Epping forest, and let it sit in a meadow. We tried many angles and ways, for the sculpture to be most comfortable. I chose one photograph of it, which was used to produce cards accompanying the show. Each artist had cards made. Those are for sale in the gallery for £1 each to support The Stone Space in their amazing first year running. If you would like one of my cards free, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your postal address and I’ll send it to you or visit the gallery. Hurry, I’ve have less than 30 left.

I would like to share some exciting news with you again, my dear readers. I’m a part of a collective of creative souls, called Fabelist. This platform acts as a support mechanism for sharing ideas, projects and much more. You can watch this video, where Francesca Goodwin from Fabelist talks about what Fabelist represents.
This May, Fabelist is taking part in The Other Art Fair, 10-13th May 2012, P3 Ambika on Marylebone Road, London, NW1. This new dynamic art fair started last year. It offers to unrepresented artists to shine, show and sell directly, without any gallery fees, to collectors, galleries and public. It all started already with a pre-fair party at Boxpark in Shoreditch on 3rd May. If you missed it, you can see this short video, where I talked to artist Pernilla Iggstrom during the event and more.
Some ‘Fabelisters‘ will be showing their remarkable art in their stands, and there are many interesting projects happening during the fair too, all part of Fabelist Market Place. It offers so much, starting with Edible Art Movement (which I introduced previously here), to ‘Meet the artists’ sessions and master-classes by the artists, there is so much happening! Make sure to check-out the Fabelist Market Place link for the full programme.
As you might have guessed from the post title, I’ll be sharing my ‘Grape extraction’ technique during the fair at the Fabelist Market Place on Sunday, 13th May at midday. Come to observe or try for yourself, how I made my ‘From the Bottom of the Sea’ sculptures. This Master-class session is for one hour only, so plan you day accordingly, if you’re interested. Find me by this ‘Organic Table’, which I approached like an installation itself. I’m really looking forward to it! If you’re not sure what ’Grape extraction’ is, you can watch a short video from the time when I discovered the technique. (Find the video under the ‘Organic Table’.)
Another tip for you, while visiting The Other Art Fair! Stop by the FAD OFFICE as well! My friends, extraordinary artists – Coffee+Sponge duo will be presenting on Friday, 11th May at 16.55 as part of Fabelist presentation by Francesca Goodwin (her presentation starts at 4.30pm) and then Coffee&Sponge will be running off to perform at Art Macabre/Cass Art’s life drawing salon for 18.00, which is going to be I’m sure a unique one!
I hope to see you there! Email me if you’d like to come to any of these events, and I can send you your free ticket! Cheers.
I visited one of those shows, which makes you think about the set up of a gallery, curating of the artworks and at the same time, is so inviting that I felt like staying for a while just sitting on one of the sofas or at the kitchen table enjoying the art.
Unique ArtHAUS is an exhibition at London’s Vyner Street by DegreeArt, in their Execution Room. It is running from May 3rd – June 30th 2012. Curated By: DegreeArt & Ryan Lanji, who talk to me on camera during my exploration of the space (watch at the end of the post). Designed By: DegreeArt, James Fuller, Karen Storey, Ryan Lanji.
This exhibition shows works by 25 artists and other collaborators, I’ll mention a few that really stood out for me. In the kitchen, I was impressed by Louise McNaught’s paintings on food packaging as well as Jana Emburey’s egg shell sculpture. In bedroom I had a close look at the works by Yuki Aruga and Chantall Powels’ wall pieces. Living room intrigued me with the wall painting installation and quirky objects by Darren Macpherson and Nicola Anthony’s sliced bank notes caught my eye too. Not forgetting the dining room and GonnyVan Hulst’s sheep heads set as meals on the table, and another wall painting installation by Tahnee Lonsdale. My favourite room was, maybe unexpended for you, the bathroom! The pieces by Janina Holloway, Myung Nam An and Claire Jackson made my day.
See for yourself how it makes you feel in the video or even better, visit the space and create your own art house in your castle.
