Read the Cowes Yachting Article, Spring Edition 2013 about all participating artists and the project:
A weekend of Fine Art Sails* racing at the London Boat Show 2013 was won by the boat and crew with my sail 'An Eye for the Buoys’.
Michael Ross' official CNM Estates UK Star Championship regatta award went to Xavier Rohart and Serge Pulfer.
Fine Art Sails is the first-of-its-kind collaboration between World Class Yachting and Internationally acclaimed artists. Established in 2012 by concept founder Michael Ross of CNM Estates, Fine Art Sails invites artists to create original artwork sails.
I am delighted to take part!
My artwork for the sail is derived from 'EVE' 2008, a limited edition flat steel-panel sculpture translated into a sail format.
I am particularly impressed by how the origins of the 'Art Sails' idea have transformed from street art and graffiti painting into the initiation of a completely new art form, literally inventing a new 'canvas' on which artists are invited to work. I'm also simply amazed at the momentum and speed at which this project has moved and gathered force since it began in 2012.
The ethos of the 'Art Sails' concept and of Michael Ross' desire to draw together the seemingly disparate worlds of nautical sailing and 'the Arts' is potentially as versatile and expansive as the invited artists can make this concept themselves, culminating in an artwork of truly magnificent proportions. I am pleased and honoured to take part and as the image I have created for this project is derived from an existing sculpture, which in itself is originated from a tiny passport photo, this demonstrates how adaptable and surprising the 'Art Sails' concept actually is.
If you are happen to be in NYC on 8th of May send me a rsvp if you like to join! I am pleased to show together with Keith Haynes and Kim Clayton-Jones, Art-Partnership presenting Vinyl Art!

Van Loon Galleries is showing my work.
Being an important centre of the avant-garde art in Northern Europe, Amsterdam has also another, much older and richer tradition – that of realism. Dutch painters were famous since Renaissance through the 18, 19 and 20 century. In the middle of the 20c., a movement called magic realism contributed with important figurative paintings depicting figurative scenes in a fantastic, mysterious scenery.
