Next month, myself and other members of the art collective Pack of Wolves are having our first exhibition! The Pack of Wolves is a collective of artists and illustrators, bound together by a respect for one another’s artistic practice, ambition and limitless imagination.
Entitled Manifesto, this exhibition presents the stance of the individuals participating in the Pack of Wolves which when combined will form the basis for the collective manifesto
The exhibition will be consist of thoughtful and enchanting new work by members including paper cut illustrations and hand embroidered typographic works amongst others.
‘A manifesto is a written public declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. It often is political in nature, but may present an individual’s life stance.’
Manifesto will run from 5 – 14th September 2012 at The Sho Gallery, Cardiff.

I myself am producing typography pieces that feature quotes from the theorists/artists I take my inspiration from. One piece however is my own quote, ‘Once upon Again’, a nod to the idea of fairy tales and art being continuously re-imagined, re-written and re-illustrated, especially to give them next contexts and meanings.
Once upon Again will be the title for another exhibition that I am currently in the midst of dreaming over and organising for the Pack of Wolves collective.
