I was really excited about displaying my stencil based art for the first time. The New Artist Fair took place at the Old Truman Brewery in the heart of Shoreditch, the area of London best known for its wide variety of street art. Ely's yard has been a magnet for tourists and visitors to the area, where as well as fuelling up at the pop up food spots and bars, you can also see the work of Shepard Fairey, D-Face and Space Invader all in one vista.
After setting up my artwork, I headed to Brick Lane where I knew that one of my favourite artists, Spray Child, had been wheat-pasting earlier in the week. It was great to see her work in person rather than on instagram.
Then, it was back to the OTB to finish the set up and look forward to what was later a very busy private view.
Apart from my close family there to celebrate, Bloomberg Award winning artist, Hilde Krohn Huse dropped by with her sister to tell me about what she's been up to and to check out the rest of the work at the fair.
