I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be off to Lisbon at the start of April for an artists residency programme on which I won a place out of 439 entries for a project proposal that will involve working with local communities and other artists in making a new and vibrant body of work that explores the cultural, social and historical aspects of Lisbon.
Typically, these opportunities, although highly competitive, are rarely fully funded and so I am looking to raise some of the capital needed here in order to accept the invitation and see my project through to completion.
All of the money raised will go towards living expenses, travel and material costs for the duration of the residency.
I’m very excited to be taking part in my first residency and am looking forward to this great opportunity to develop my practice in a new studio environment and to make some colourful and vibrant wallpaper based work alongside some gargantuan woodblock prints, full of movement and light.
I would like to thank you all for your support now and in the past and I hope that one or all of the following rewards appeal to you in seeing this artist off on the next stage of his journey.
