WET DREAMS #collage series


For tomorrow’s group exhibition by Collagistes Collective and Creative Debuts, in association with Whitechapel Gallery First Thursdays, I have started a collage series titled WET DREAMS. The series was inspired by aerial landscape imagery and the sense one feels when viewing the land from above, whether one is viewing it from atop a mountain or from an aeroplane’s window. The above work – WET DREAMS no.1 was sadly rejected by the gallery as it was deemed too inapproriate, but you can see 3 other original collage works from the series at The Black and White Building in Shoreditch until 03 November 2016. Please pop by if you’re in the area to see #TWENTY – an exhibition full of wonderful abstract paintings and inspiring collages. More info @

The above artwork titled CLOAK is a collaborative sculpture piece by Laura Fishman and dervinBATARLO. With Batarlo’s skills in fashion design and pattern cutting, CLOAK was produced using more than six (up to ten, if I’m not mistaken) ‘liquid paintings’ by Fishman. This multicoloured artwork (check Laura Fishman’s website to see its original colours) will be exhibited as part of the SEAMS exhibition this coming September, during London Fashion Week, brought to you by Sweet’Art. Come and join us on September 13th (2014) for the private view. Check the flyer (below) for more details or you can contact me via Twitter (dervinbatarlo) or email (
