Instead of going to school, Blondey spent most of his time soaking up the ever-present cultural references of London’s concrete-casted Southbank skate park.
Though it was skating that allowed Blondey to find ties to himself and make bonds within his environment, he moves with ease between multiple worlds and has five different things on the boil at all times. For him, there is little difference between the designs he makes for his clothing brand Thames London, the collages which end up in galleries or collaborations with Burberry, the artist Damien Hirst or the photographer Alasdair McLellan. They all originate from the same compulsion to create.
Edition of 10
50 x 72 cm
Varying in size from its static form measuring 50x72cm, up to maximum of 95x50cm when displayed “in movement”. This unprecedented limited edition applies his unmistakable digitally-based aesthetics on custom built structure made of mdf panel base and an aluminum sheet with up to 11 pixelated stripes. Using magnets as the mounting method, the parts of the piece are easily movable both vertically and horizontally, enabling different sequences of the stripes which form assorted vibrant compositions.
