Last Thursday evening, I packed up my Saffron Walden gallery and took the Richer Than Batman exhibition to Electric Gallery in London.
People came out in their droves to see the new collection, which featured the twenty original quotation pieces, several large plywood originals and the new limited edition collaborative screenprints.
Jai and Mike at Electric Gallery hosted a fantastic launch – with conversations on the night centered very much around wealth, social contribution and how we can all do more to help.
Representatives from Single Homeless Project came to speak about the charity and the fantastic work they do both locally in Redbridge, and across all the London boroughs. Tara and Meghan spoke passionately about the work of Single Homeless Project, their own personal stories, as well as the sheer volume of individuals Single Homeless Project help on a yearly basis (it’s a lot!).
On the night, as well as exhibiting the original collection, I also launched eight new collaborative pieces. The collaborations were a chance for me to partner with some of my favourite artists and friends. We created the pieces with a view to combine each artist’s individual style with a nod to Richer Than Batman.
I want to thank John Pedder, Lizzie Coles, Paris68Redux, Dave Buonaguidi, Daisy Emerson, Inkterativ, Adam Bridgland and Dave Towers for their contributions to the exhibition.
I am still looking for new quotations to use in my next show:
What would you do if you were 400 times richer?
Please e-mail me your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for thought-provoking, interesting, funny and serious quotations so please send in your ideas.

A percentage of each sale goes to Single Homeless Project.
