Having devoted myself to a convey, i wished a spot to paintings from, and it used to be whereas emptying the trash after the hole of Kinsey’s convey that i realized a tuckedaway spot, filled with previous scooters yet preferably situated simply spitting distance from the well-trodden direction of Dray stroll, the place we had held the 2 indicates. it's going to make the precise gallery-cum-studio; it used to be a bit off the crushed course, yet preferably situated and simple adequate to discover as soon as within the zone. the belief used to be to separate the distance in order that my studio may perhaps aid the gallery, and vice versa. a good condominium fee used to be agreed, a pretend wall with mystery ‘book-case door’ used to be equipped down the center of the unit, and StolenSpace opened complete time. once the gallery confirmed it might aid itself I’d movement my studio out and we’d have a much bigger everlasting gallery, and it was once additionally agreed with Jason that lets use different areas within the Truman Brewery to carry greater, grander indicates.

Importantly, i've got stored one of many earliest supplies I made to Shepard Fairey of setting up a solo exhibition of his paintings in London; in reality, I’ve saved it two times: to begin with in 2007 with ‘Nineteen 80 Phoria’, an immense 20,000-square-foot house (his biggest convey to date), and back in 2012 with ‘Sound and Vision’. The tales and indicates from StolenSpace particularly deserve a publication of their personal correct, yet because the gallery has been this kind of huge and critical a part of my lifestyles it couldn’t cross unmentioned the following. on the time of writing, StolenSpace is dealing with relocation as a result of forthcoming demolition of the development that homes it and our artists’ studios, so we're at one other turning aspect within the gallery’s lifestyles – a thrilling yet doubtful time. to this point, I’ve slightly pointed out the ‘B’ be aware, as a rule simply because as much as this element Banksy used to be only a fellow artist with a penchant for stencils who I’d see up on my travels. His ‘anonymity’ was once no huge factor, and in reality there have been a ways larger and extra prolific graffiti writers inflicting severe felony harm who saved their identities shrouded, for noticeable purposes. It was once additionally widely recognized that he frolicked on the Dragon Bar, which on the time used to be simply off previous highway in east London, and it was once the place we’d all been assembly up for a while, getting under the influence of alcohol and tagging the bathrooms and surrounding sector. I’d constantly loved Banksy’s paintings, and it fast grew to become transparent that he was once operating to another schedule, a really shrewdpermanent and well-executed one – so whilst I acquired an e mail from him asserting he cherished the banknotes i used to be doing, and could I meet to discuss a collaboration, i used to be all ears.
