Congrats to Alan Coulson for his 3rd place at this years National Gallery Portrait award & his Portrait of me . The standard was insane this year .
The 1st to my Tryptic of Films from last year , About to release my new set .
Before i release my new set of Short Films, Heres one from last year , I WANTED TO CLAP AT THE END , Part of a Tyrptic .
A Video from Orlando Campbell’s recent show at 33 Tite Street .
So , after months of deciding which Gallery to go with in my home Town London, I Finally decided on 33, TITE STREET, CHELSEA, And with Arthur Hobhouse & Patrick Barstow’a (NewArtists space)… Arthur & Patrick are the brains behind It all & it was a pretty easy decision. Even though i had some great offers from well established Gallerys, i chose Tite Street as they were far more younger & Forward thinking than the rest. I wanted to be surrounded with younger Artists who are constantly pushing the boundaries , But also had that Family Vibe going on. If we were a Record Label we would be Young Turks or something i rekon .
The Gallery is situated in Chelsea,which suits me fine to be well away from East London( its getting more & more cringe worthy every time i have to go there…. 33 Tite Street has MAD history to its name too , it was once the Studio of John Singer Sargent (which was pretty fuckin cool )
Arhtur & Patrick’s vision & what they want to do with the place totally sold me, Theres studio spaces & Offices down stairs & the Main Gallery upstairs , which is by appointment only . Up till now theres just Me , Photographer – Brett Walker & Orlando Campbell on the Roster of Artists , Though im sure once people get to see the space , Artists are gonna wanna be apart of this Shit for sure!! . I truly believe that within 2-3 years TITE STREET will be a Major Force in the Contemporary Art World . Watch this space ……. Richie
