I am beyond delighted to announce that my video piece, “Got any pics?“, will be shown as part of ‘Just Experimenting: Playing the Sexual Edge of Film’ at the Centre for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, California.
I can announce that I have been selected to be part of the March 2018 issue of Wotisart? magazine.
Can’t wait to get my copy!
Thrilled to announce that throughout March 2018 I will be artist in residence over at Digital Artist Residency.
Over the course of the month I aim to develop on video and digital work.
Larry Walker-Tonks welcomes you to ‘GRUNDER : Version 1.0’; a pop-up exhibition of sleazy sculpture and lewd paintings. Larry presents a satirical yet sobering look at our social media habits and the immense pressure put upon social media users to drop their morals, standards and their pants with little regard for their own sexual health.
Join the party at AATMA’s basement*, enjoy the booze, forget your morals, meet a lover, loathe the music.
14-16 Faraday St
*AATMA is an 18+ Venue
This is the first of a two part exhibition, ‘GRUNDER : Version 1.2’ takes place on the 4th September 2017 at the LGBT Foundation in Manchester (6pm-9pm)
Delighted to announce that I have had two pieces selected for the Lancashire Open Exhibition 2017.
The first piece, ‘Gateway 1’, dates from 2013 and was among the first work I made after moving to Manchester. At the time I made this I was living on a friend’s floor in a strange, new and (at times) unfriendly city. I was just starting down a long and horrendous JSA learning curve and looking for work and a place of my own. I found comfort in drawing and began to draw tall wrought Iron gateways. They were always locked in determination to keep me out but nearly always broken and inviting me in.
Gateway 1 had a previous outing in London, exhibited at ’13 The Gallery’ in Islington, London in 2014 as part of their Art-fordable programme.
My second piece, ‘Untitled 4’ is part of my current expanding foam-based work. It is brand new and was only finished a matter of days before being taken to the gallery. Expanding foam flesh sits inside a small aperture, from which the viewer is presented with the beautiful and the grotesque as contorted and wiry hair is bejewelled with colourful varnish crystals.
The piece itself is tiny, being only around 10cm tall. I cant wait to see this in situ!
The Lancashire Open Exhibition runs 22nd July – 6th September 2017 with a preview night on the 21st July.

Delighted to announce that I have a piece of work selected to be part of PS Mirabel’s 2017 Open Call for their ‘Small World’ exhibition.
My piece, ‘Untitled 3’, forms part of an early exploration into the properties of expanding foam and its qualities when combined with other materials.
‘Small World’ showcases the best of tiny artwork with no piece exceeding 20cm in any direction.
Exhibition preview is on the 7th July 6pm to 9pm and open every Saturday 11am to 5pm until 13th August and will be part of the MANIFEST programme which coincides with the 2017 Manchester International Festival.

‘Mekewāp’ dates back to 2011 and is a recent return to old work, rediscovered whilst clearing out a childhood home, and stumbling across several works each with the ‘wigwam’ motif the artists questions the purpose of the dwelling and the home. Can the home be spiritual? Do we carry our ideals of the home and the dwelling like snails carry a shell?
Exhibition dates Fri 7 Jul – Sat 12 Aug 2017
Opening Times Weds – Fri 10am–5pm | Sat 10am–3pm
Opening night Fri 7 Jul, 6pm – 8pm
Address Creative Arts Hub CIC, 1st floor, 51-53 Huddersfield Rd, Mirfield, WF14 8AB
Hope to see you there.
Today marks two weeks to go until the opening of Middlesbrough Art weekender and my return to exhibiting in Middlesbrough. From the 19th – 21st May work of International and Regional Artists will be shown across forty locations alongside public events and workshops.
Linking all of these shows is an art trail along Albert Road, which is where my work will be shown.
You may recognise this piece from an earlier installation piece (as shown in Manchester and Swansea). Due to space constraints the whole piece cannot be shown.
I am thrilled to be showing work in my old stomping ground after a four year absence alongside some incredible artists.
