New Series with Chaz at the Adhoc Gallery in New York


Under the name The London Police, Bob Gibson has once again teamed up with Chaz to make three original works on canvas for the “4 Geezers” show at the Adhoc Gallery in Brooklyn, New York (www.adhocart.org).

After a successful opening night the duo are now busy making new work, combining their two contrasting styles not seen since the Dutch Masters Show in 2006.

10 Years on the Circle Line opens in London


After weeks of careful hand drawn preparation (and a couple of nights sleeping in the studio on bubblewrap) 10 Years on the Circle Line is now open at the Stolenspace Gallery www.stolenspace.com. The opening night was a great success and we would like to thank Richard, Eve, Beth, Clare, Tom, Tab and of course The Monk for all their hard work. See the TLP collabs section for all the finished work.

The sketch book drawings of the opening are by Boston’s own Brian Butler. www.theupperhandart.com

10 Years Later opens in Amsterdam


TLPs 10 year celebration continued in Amsterdam this May. The opening night saw a strong turnout from friends and socialites in Amsterdam’s famous Jordaan quarter. 8 new hand drawn works were on show plus a limited edition print . Following on from the “EVERY 20 MINS” photo project seen at last years Brooklyn (NYC) show TLP decided to repeat the idea but this time with Bob participating too.  The rules were the same. Take a photo every 20mins 24 hours a day for seven days and then deal with your weak immunity system and failing relationships later. We’d like to thank Mo, Minivila, The School of Chris, Oscar and Farud for all their patience and hard work. For a panoramic view of the show see http://www.c360.nl/gogallery_tlp/

When he’s not necking tequilas and playing oldskool arcade games Logan Hicks is busy making world class stencils and, on this occasion, selecting a team of artists to collaborate with some band called GREEN DAY on an art/music project for their new album. The show including 14 other artists will tour with the band over the next year or so. Thanks to Logan and Green Day for getting us involved

Big Amsterdam Wall Piece


Work in progress....more pics soon.

Amsterdam Wall Piece is finished


How pleasing it was when the seemingly nice bloke who lives at  Prinsengracht No.70 allowed TLP to adorn the facade of his building with a choice black and white image of a totempole lad being constructed by a Bob Gibson robot. How displeasing then, when on the fourth day, the Amsterdam Gemeente (city council) officials arrived and politely told us we needed extra permission to paint any building in the city centre. They kindly allowed us to finish the characters but we were not allowed to make a start on any further background etc. The case is currently under review with the city council whether to keep the painting. They must decide whether normal everyday human beings would prefer to see a  considered art mural or a banal grey wall which serves as a breeding ground for weak graffiti and posters advertising drug fuelled house music events where DJs spin other peoples shit records.

Big wall painting in KOSOVO


Off to Kosovo to finally paint a mural in the city centre of PRISHTINA. With the old school wrists of ZEDZ and the youthful skills of Prishtina-based TAKI we painted the side of the University Science building located just a stones throw from the huge public library. The company that gave us the lift to go up the wall also kindly provided us with a bloke (Fetim) to work the lift who only spoke albanian. ' Pak majtas Chaz' he would say and , obviously, i would reply 'shume mire Fetim, faleminderrit'. The days flew by.

A 'Piece for Positivity' was curated and organised by Rienke Enghardt. Her website www.hopebox.nl shows all the work she has done to instigate art and music events in places that otherwise wouldnt have them. Dont be shy to look at it.

True Self expo curated by Gary Baseman opens in New York


It wasnt two months ago when that cheeky chappy Gary Baseman managed to stop hanging around with asian women for a minute and took time to invite TLP to submit a piece for his TRUE SELF show which opened at the JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY last week. We thought long and hard about our true selves and realised that the classic LAD character is kind of a portrait of CHAZ and the linear architectural style is wholly representative of BOBs life and therefore we just did another canvas like normal. Dont be shy to pop along to the gallery and take a butchers at the work alongside many other fine and warm artists. click here to see the Jonathan Levine gallery site

The London Police goes big in Miami


As December and winter kicked in it was a welcome break for TLP to head to the sunny delights of Miami to get amongst Art Basel and take part in Primary Flight 2009 hosted by BOOKS IIII. We represented the group show with our piece (see Recent work) "MIAMI NICELY" and then had a couple of days in the Wynwood district painting a huge wall with the dream team of GALO (from the galo crew), Daryl Pierce and the well bearded Jim Darling. During those days many artists were invited to put murals up in the area and we would definitely recommend having a walk or jog round that area to see loads of amazing pieces and some gnarly looking geezers selling crack.
