A scene that can be witnessed on more or less every street corner in central London Monday to Friday, you are viewing a print of a painting of two dead men talking. Who knows what they are talking about? Probably evilness. Or how somebody spray-painted a big pink cock on the bonnet of their brand new Bugatti. We'll never know.

Made in acrylic and emulsion on canvas in 2007, the original painting of the aforementioned print was created whilst the artist was based in a studio once a skin-processing factory in the Caldmore area of Walsall in the West Midlands. A former red light district, Caldmore is now locally known for its abundance of flesh-dragging mutant-pussbag slug-puffer gravel-sucking creature-blobs and near nightly riots fought viciously between various and multitude escaped fast food scraps in its short but charming-if-you-are-lacking-eyeballs high street.

Also worthy of mention and a known rich source of inspiration to Carp is the nearby Church of St. Plorp atop a hill of medieval crisps which overlooks the town and where after a long days painting the artist often attended midnight shoe burnings and services involving the offering of sacrificial ham to a broken telly reputed to cry milk every time somebody bought a packet of value sausages from Poundland, though in a purely observational role it is important to note.

Carp Matthew is now based in London, though bares the scars of said time via his art and disturbingly frequent references to ham.
