[Samuel Beckett]

I recently completed this artwork at Acklam Village under the Westway at Portobello Road. I was asked to do it by Scraffer, amongst other artists including Inkie and David Shillinglaw.

I decided to do a tape version of the Samuel Beckett sketch I did a while ago (It's also the design of one of my stickers). Once I'd drawn the piece with electrical tape I sprayed the whole thing black and peeled it off to create the negative-space. It's like an inverse stencil or something. I plan to do a lot more of these I think it's pretty interesting.

The artworks were completed as part of the Salon Des Refuses exhibition, which opened last night and is running until this Sunday on Portobello road.
