‘SOUVENIR DE BARCELONA’ – POSTERS. This collection of posters is my small homage to Barcelona, still a little bit of a tourist in the city in some respects, even after four years of living here, I see the the ordinary as exotic.

A mix of blue skies, architecture, found typography, street patina and daily life – These posters are new souvenirs for both visitors and natives alike. Combining collage, drawing, words and found imagery to create modern posters as keepsakes from a wonderfully inspiring city.




Road to Ayahuasca


An exhibition of prints by London-based illustrator Helen Lord. Her work explores patterns in nature, beginning at quantum level and inspired by everything from the Mandelbrot set to falling leaves. She creates fictional narratives influenced by classic fiction, folklore, dreams, current events and music. Her approach varies from ‘automatic drawing’ to ‘Wouldn’t it be brilliant if…’

Bearly There @ Studio73 Gallery


‘Bearly There’ is the first ever solo show by British graphic artist ‘Sneaky Raccoon’ (aka Anna Mullin). As the shows name suggests, the exhibition celebrates all things bear with freedom and fun in mind.

“Bears are interesting, creative, inquisitive creatures. They are probably the first animal that most of us are introduced to as a child in the form of a teddy bear, before we even have an understanding of what any animal is. With their habitats receding, poaching and hunting causes numbers to drop and some subject to the brutality rife in the animal trade — it just breaks my heart. I love animals and they have been a source of endless fascination to me all of my life and that’s why I choose to feature them heavily in my work. We can’t save every animal from such terrible fates, but we can at least attempt to help by campaigning to keep their habitats protected and support those people on the ground who are literally saving and giving them a second chance at the life they deserve.”

Artwork on display at the lovely Studio73 Gallery in Brixton Village will offer unique signed one-off prints, original drawings, paintings, totes bags and perhaps a custom toy or two. There will be a raffle to win a custom painted toy by Sneaky too on the night! So, remember what it is to go down to the woods, share a teddy bears picnic or just see the secret life of bears — this exhibition focuses on the frolics and fantasy of their dreams so there really is something for everyone.

Sadly, not all bears or animals get the opportunity to live out happy lives however some are lucky to be rescued. As an active supporter of the bear and animal charity WSPA (The World Society for the Protection of Animals) Sneaky aims to raise some money from the exhibition from both a percentage of sales over the duration of the show, as well as visitor donations on opening night will be going to the charity.
