Magical Gorillas and Diamond Thrillers at Cafe La Piadina

I painted on the walls of Cafe La Piadina in Bondi.

Curated by Activated Walls, every month a new artists makes the outside of this cafe, which is run by 3 Italian brothers, their canvas.

I was the artist for July, previous artists have been EarsMike Watt and Skulk.

I titled this piece Magical Gorillas and Diamond Thrillers.

On the side wall I painted Garth, someone said he kind of looks like Putin, I agree except Putin wishes he could grow a beard like Garth.

In the Christmas holidays I had the good fortune to be invited to paint live at Mambo’s pop up shop in Circular Quay.

Mum and dad came along and helped me paint Mia the Magical Unicorn. She derives her magical powers from eating magical ice creams.

Trait was painting alongside me and he painted a magical kookaburra.

It was great times and everybody did a great job.

Faux Metal Jacket

I have submitted a piece of art into this cool artshow at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi.

Interview with Yen Magazine


I was recently interviewed by Yen Magazine where I talked about Bart Simpson, carrot cake and Golden Gaytimes.

It is very insightful and you will really like it a lot like a monkey likes a banana.

I was commissioned to paint a turtle and a weasel for a birthday present for Tom. This is what I painted.

An Ode to Turtle Tom and Dana Weasel

A turtle and a weasel that’s what I saw
Running from the club through the back door

What mischief they made I do not know
But the fellas chasing them were ready to go

Tom the turtle was a music dude
Gigging every night and playing for his food

A weasel called Dana was his manager chick
She called the shots and was very slick

While Tom was jamming Dana was always hustling
She would sniff out a card game and muscle her way in

Her methods were suss but she always won
And more often than not they’d leave on the run

A regular Bonnie and Clyde is what they were
And an interesting couple they made, him and her

Gino the Majestic Tiger

I was commissioned to paint a tiger for Gino’s 30th birthday. This is what I made.

An Ode to Gino the Majestic Tiger

There was this tiger called Gino and he was magic indeed
He had a diamond on his head if it’s more proof you need

From a very young age he liked making pasta
He learnt off Papa tiger the pasta making master

When he got older, deep in the jungle he began
Building a ristorante with his own two hands

He built it up high in a big jungle tree
And the view was special and all of Haberfield you could see

He thought long and hard and named it ‘Pappardelle’
Which is a broad, flat noodle and is pretty darn swell

To wrap this ode up and what I would like to say
Is happy 30th Gino and have a lovely day

At the time of writing this artwork is for sale at Platform72 in Central Park Mall on Broadway in Sydney.

An Ode to Otis the Owl

He was the smoothest owl on the whole darn team
And he made every shot with no effort it would seem

And after he made a shot a little dance he would do
And the kicks on his feet would come alive like a zoo

B-ball was his game and he was quite good at it
But being a smooth owl is how he got all his credit

After the game all the chicky owls would come by
Get his autograph and then fly away into the sky

And the sunnies on his head made his presence electric
And wearing them increased his skills from super to hectic

This is a collage I made and is the third in a series of four.

You can buy a print here.

An Ode to Eiffel Tower Boat People

I emerged from the deep
In a lake so smooth
The Eiffel tower so sleek
I was in my groove

My appearance here
Was wholly unexpected
But I was very near
And the boat people were unaffected

The tower loomed
Like a steel beast
Large and overhead
My eyes did feast

Oh the wonder
That I did behold
On this very day
A statement bold
