‘Underworld’, my latest interactive installation in the basement of the Old Rotherhithe Library will be open to the public only for 1 day, on Saturday June 20th.
The installation consists of a large burial ground of objects from my collection in the Library’s basement that will soon be demolished… People visiting will be invited to rescue the objects they like from the ‘Underworld’ (FREE of charge or on donation).
I will also be showing some of my drawings, prints and sculptures in other parts of the building, along with a small ‘jumble sale’ of random objects, art materials, furniture and curiosities. Everything will be for sale.
Come and visit the magic Rotherhithe Library before it’s demolished, say good bye to the old times and celebrate the new possibilities this might bring with it.

I’ve recently worked on a collaboration with Sydney based studio amigo & amigo for the ‘Mythology’ exhibition this Friday, June 5. If you are on that side of the planet find details for the event here.
‘Desalada’ takes my illustration of ‘Duality’ to the 3 dimensions: I developed the character further with new drawings to print on clear acrylic and display them on layers, appearing as the character has depth in space. Photos coming very soon! Read and see more here.
This coming Saturday I’ll be taking part in an improv session, drawing to the music of The Junk Orchestra and also interacting with Messy Sam, a movement and voice performance group.

This is a detail from ‘Memories of the Structure of the Universe II’, the 26 metre long mural I recently created for AMC Hospital in Amsterdam. It’s my second commission for their staff offices following the same ethos as ‘Memories of the Structure of the Universe’; a reminder that there will always be a different way to see life – a surreal, lighthearted and above all personal approach to the marvel of being human.

I am delighted to invite all Londoners to my new group exhibition ‘Outside Fixed Patterns’ curated by Art Represent. They have gathered a unique collective of working artists each experimenting with creative textures, materials and form. The pieces in this collection range from furniture to prints and organic matter installations. These singular works share an accessibility often-times missing in contemporary art, in that they fluidly integrate both within a budding art collection or in the interior decor of your home.
November 1st - 15th
Private View & Opening Reception.

Last week I’ve had the honour of illustrating a map for the ‘Artistic Undergrowth & Expressive Boskage’ event that will take place on Saturday October 18 @ The Robin Howard Dance Theatre (The Place), a celebration of the “forest of creativity”: the natural ability that art has (just like nature) to penetrate, take over and inhabit time, space & theatres…No comments
Cristina Guitian’s solo exhibition Hinges presents an enigmatic tale of life and death. Using a wide range of media including sculpture, drawing and installation, Cristina explores the infinite and finite, holding time at bay, but also gently letting it go…

To introduce their new site my Dutch agents Art Associates asked me for an illustration based on the idea of the Magic Glasses, showing the magic within the site.
’2-headed Christmas’ is a collaborative piece whereby provided with a metal structure, I was invited to create a decorative seasonal display.
I brought together some of the objects collected since 2010 from forgotten corners in London, the installation working therefore as a celebration of the last three years exploring this great city, its memories and artefacts.
This Summer I was invited to take part in the 3rd edition of the street art festival VANG!. Over the Summer period a total of 40 artists were invited to visit Es Castell (a small town on the Spanish island of Menorca) to paint on its abandoned walls.
A massive THANKS to the artists and organisers of the festival Pol Marban and Hombre López.
Hohe Luft, a German magazine about philosophy, recently commissioned me to illustrate 4 of their topics.
The illustrations aim to deal with the complex ethical issue that arose out of Boston Bombing Suspect deaths. They also touch on sensationalism and mass media control in dictating our cultural narrative.
I recently was commissioned to produce a piece at Cr8net, a one-day conference for the creative and cultural industries. Bringing together industry practitioners, policy makers and senior management, the organizer CIDA commissioned the artist Jane Core and myself to enhance the event with some live work.
I took the opportunity to work on a couple of new sculptures, exploring reflections. See more of what came up on the day of work here
The Healthcare Advertising agency McCann Healthcare asked me to create a symbolic artwork of what the agency stands for: Creative, Science and Conectivity.
I created an A1 inked illustration that was then blown up to fill 6 m of wall space in their offices in Sydney.
Ghosts of Gone Birds are raising a creative army for conservation through a series of multimedia exhibitions and events that will breathe artistic life back into extinct birds species.
I am delighted to take part in their next group exhibition in Brighton along many other artists, from upcoming ones to iconic figures like Sir Peter Blake or Margaret Atwood. Some of the money raised will be donated to BirdLife International’s Preventing Extinctions programme.
The exhibition will be on for 3 months from 1 November – 31 January. Find the details about the gallery here
The Jaws of Chance will be on display as part of a fashion exhibition at the Covent Garden Piazza from 18 – 28 October 2012 (open everyday from 9am – 7pm).

The exhibition explores how trainers have become part of the fabric of our culture and showcases rare pairs. Read The Guardian’s article of the exhibition here.
