When the Stencil Shed launched in 2012 in my hometown of Malmesbury I hid lots of different artworks around the town to ask people to vote for my ‘Stencil Shed’ for the Shed of the Year competition. One of the artworks was a gorilla and it became quite popular, his name back then was Elmo.
I’ve revisited the subject matter and have made a brand new Gorilla 10 years on. The 2022 Gorilla is called ‘Brian’ after my dad (much as he will probably complain) and there are just 10 available to buy in an edition of 10. Each one has been stencilled on the reverse with “Ten Year Anniversary” so its sure to become a highly collectable piece in the future.
This is number 10 in the edition and is spray painted onto ash wood. Elm wood looks nice and clean with interesting grain behind the gorilla portrait and tapered edge to top. Measures 10 by 19cm.
You will receive exactly what you see in the photo.
