I am really pleased to share that I have collaborated with esteemed UK-based print studio King & McGaw to launch a collection of limited edition prints from my Le Petit Echo de la Mode series. The collection of giclée prints are printed onto 330 gsm Somerset paper, offering detailed and vibrant interpretations of the original artworks. I take this opportunity to thank King & McGaw’s director Gyr King and head of publishing – Sian Rees. More to follow.

I am so pleased to share that I have finished making Anansi Tales, an artist’s book with contributions by Nancy Campbell in way of writing my foreward, and book designer Manuel Mazzotti who worked very closely with me. A special thanks for my muse Akin Fadairo who patiently posed for me.

I have had a long fascination with the legendary African trickster and master of disguise. The series A Study on Anansi was spotted by Sir Paul Smith and exhibited in his Albermarle Street Gallery in 2009. Now in Anansi Tales I celebrate the human body and combines the arts of tailoring and storytelling. Anansi knew that stories were missing from the world, and travelled to the sun to find them. I offer a new slant on this traditional African tale. In a series of bold and colourful cut-out images, I use original bespoke suit tailoring patterns from the tailors Dege & Skinner to rewrite the history of Western tailoring, taking the suit back to its component parts, and honouring its original form: the robe.

The book is an edition of only 15 copies and scheduled to launch next year. Please get in contact for more info.
