I’ve posted a few images from the shoot I did with photographer Kalpesh Lathigra. During the ORDINARY MONSTERS exhibition in Brick Lane, Kalpesh and I shot members of the public wearing masks and headgear that I’d made that were directly influenced by the characters in my paintings. The resulting images will be exhibited in my next exhibition in February…

The latest exhibition organised by my collaborative art space Salon16 opens this week for four days only. Of course I’d love you see you there. Why not come to the opening night party and see Bunny de Sade perform her ‘musical soundscrape’? Or pop in on Sunday and model for award-winning photographer Kalpesh Lathigra? Or just come along any time between Saturday and Tuesday and see what all the fuss is about! For more information and the latest updates visit salon16.org.

In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, visitors will be asked to don a mask or headgear made by David Caines, and will be photographed both with and without the headgear.
