WELCOME TO SHUGVILLE
2012

His ‘Welcome To Shugville’ exhibition saw Shugville working on small scale paintings in gouache and watercolour. The show’s subjects were a diverse smorgasbord of imagery taken from a gamut of interests and emotions picked up from photographs, walks, books and memories.

THE POWERFUL AND THE POWERLESS
2003

‘The Powerful And The Powerless’ consisted of large works in oil pastel, pastel & ink. The pictures focus on the human figure, whilst also exploring myth, folklore and the dynamics of power. The characters occupy a position of both power and powerlessness, an interchangeable state depending on how each image is viewed.

ALL THAT ID IS
1999

The exhibition consisted of drawings in pen, graphite and charcoal conceived around a limited edition self-published book, ‘All That Id Is’.

A character, Id, journeys through different environments, metaphors for inner states of being. It received a highly prized (by the artist) personal recommendation by cult artist Ralph Steadman.

FIRST SOLO SHOW
1997

Shugville exhibited the work he had completed while attending the L’Atelier De La Bande-Dessinee in Angouleme France. It comprised the artwork published in the independent comic revue Ego Comme X and Lapis Lazuli, four self-published art books, and some illustrations, all in pen.

The show garnered an article in the magazine Dazed & Confused and the artbook ‘Don’t Panic’ was incorporated in the book ‘Zines’ published in 2001 ‘offering the first highly visual analysis of the phenomenon of the self-published book.’
