Trained at the distinguished Wimbledon School of Art, London, Spike has been creating, painting, sticking, drawing and inventing since the great summer of ‘81. His creative energies have been harnessed somewhat since the days of Dangermouse and Bucks Fizz and Spike has swapped his Stickle Bricks for paints and brushes as he makes his presence felt within the murky world of fine art.
Spike lives in a surreal world where big hair is the key to success, 80’s pop has always been in fashion and bandits from the north roam the Highlands armed with fish knives. The young and enthusiastic artist can be found buried in his lair in South Wales assembling an audacious body of artwork inspired by rocks, dreams and the natural world, with which he hopes to conquer Newport, and then … the universe!
With a number of small exhibitions already under his belt Spike is gradually gathering momentum as he begins to infiltrate the great big white world with his heavy textures and distorted dreams. Spike is always looking for a new challenge and he would be more than happy to share some of his creativity with you. Just remember to ask nicely and provide well brewed a cup of tea and a bourbon cream.
