Secret 7" Exhibition Opens 18.04.12

If you follow my twitter or facebook... back in February you might have seen my pledge for votes to have my artwork selected for the Secret 7" Project? I entered a competition through to design a 7" vinyl sleeve interpreting Florence + The Machines 'If Only for a Night' track. I am delighted to have won a top 5 spot in the competition and now my artwork shall be exhibited. (Massive thanks to everyone that voted!)

Alongside my own work, there will be designs by an array of musicians and other artists who have created sleeves inspired by tracks from The Cure, Florence + The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, CSS, DJ Shadow, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard.

The exhibition opens next week, from Wednesday 18th April - Sunday 22nd April 2012 at the Idea Generation Gallery, Shoreditch, London. Opening times: 10am - 6pm.  My design has been printed as a 'one-off' vinyl to be sold at the exhibition, so make sure you get down there if you want to own a copy!

Take a peek at whats to be expected at the exhibition at - all artwork has now been uploaded to site for your viewing pleasure... can you guess which design is for which track?

Secret 7" is a project which aims to rekindle some of the excitement for sleeve art in the digital era by exploring how a track would be interpreted by an array of brilliant artists.

On the 21st April – Record Store Day – through to close on Sunday the exhibition is yours to own. Each of the one-of-a-kind heavyweight 7'' records will be available to take home with you for a minimum donation to Teenage Cancer Trust of £40.

Every penny profited from the sale of these exclusive vinyl records is going to the charity.
