David Apps and Billy Chainsaw

David Apps and Billy Chainssaw present a  joint exhibition of photography, screen prints, canvases and ceramics.

David spent many years making photographs in the East End of London, published in book form as East End, East London. To coincide with the 2012 Olympics, David was commissioned to create his first mural Butterflies, which dominates the Stratford, East London skyline. David’s limited edition screen-prints are generated by re-working, re-colouring, and layering his original photographs. David has recently used antiqued mirror over his photographic images – which he places inside frames constructed from such diverse materials as plastic toys, Lego, and jigsaw puzzle pieces. 

Billy worked for Siouxsie and The Banshees in the 1970’s, as an editor for Paul Raymond in the 1990’s, Billy showed his art for the first time in 2012 at an underground open house in Hove. His collection of mixed-media canvases and up-cycled, bespoke ceramics sold out. Since then he has exhibited in numerous group shows and staged a month-long solo show at London’s prestigious Horse Hospital gallery. He created an exclusive fabric design for Charles of London; a range of merchandise for legendary experimental filmmaker/artist Jeff Keen’s retrospective at the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery; art for indie superstars The Fall’s 13 Killers album; and contributions to the book Cut Up! An Anthology Inspired By The Cut Up Method Of William S. Burroughs And
Brion Gysin.
