His first solo painting show was at Liverpool’s View2 Gallery in 2014. During the summer of 2018 all of his work was displayed at CAC pop-up Gallery 118. During the run Sex Pistols’ guitarist Steve Jones bought a fine art photograph from SEX PISTOLS 1976 and four screenprints entitled TheImpossible#1. The gallery was visited by Elvis Costello who bought a portrait of the guitarist Peter Green.
