Will Barras is an artist, illustrator and animation director living and working in London. He grew up in Birmingham and moved to Bristol to study graphic design.

Will became one of a new crop of young artists working within Bristol's world renowned street art scene. This led to Will appearing in 'Scrawl' the book,  and becoming a founding member of the Scrawl collective. 'Scrawl' originally published in 1999 was a seminal book documenting a new movement in street art, graphics and illustration. He was chosen as one of the original artists for the collective, noted for his representations of fluid movement, unique narrative driven composition and line work. This has led Will to travel extensively, Live painting and exhibiting his paintings in Asia, throughout Europe and the U.S.

Will continues to Paint and Travel, following a gruelling schedule and continually evolving his style and technique. When Will isn't travelling and painting, he continues to take on commercial art projects which interest him, and Direct animated commercials.

Mike added

"We are really excited to be working alongside one of the UK's most renowned and beloved street artists. Will is considered by his contemporary's as one of the most influential and respected artists of his generation and a pioneer of modern day street art."

About the print from the artist

"This painting is inspired by 'The Dog' by Goya, a painting he did on the wall of his house towards the end of his life.

It's a mysterious painting. The dogs head is very small at the bottom of the composition almost completely enveloped by a large dark mass. 

Some people think the dog is drowning or half buried, representing mans futile struggle against forces beyond his control.

But maybe he was just asking his owner to take him out for a walk, so here is Goya taking his dog for a walk." - Will Barras

Cheo Bio
The mutant love child of the hip hop and skate scenes, Cheo was raised in Kingswood, Bristol, on a high-carb diet of The Beano and Nutty comics, and subsequently Vaughan Bode's twisted underground cartoon strips.

Obsessed with 'drawling' since early sproghood, he hit adolescence just in time to be consumed by the arrival of hip hop from the US in the early 80s. After a brief spell spinning on his back and arse for shillings at the local shopping centre, graffiti fired up the young b-boy's imagination enough to lead him to the shady heights of the notorious Barton Hill Youth Club in 1987. Here he found a deranged community of like-minded bodkins painting the walls, doors and floors of the club - and everything else within a five-mile radius, for that matter.

Cheo became a veteran of various drawing competitions (including one in Nutty Comic, and another on kids TV show Get Fresh) and one national graffiti championship, which he won alongside local legend Deed in 1987. Then, in 1989 Cheo hit the big time, coming second at the Bridlington World Graffiti Championships alongside local wild style prodigy Inkie. Soon after, however, the creeping evil that was the emerging rave scene all but snuffed-out UK hip hop's young-flame, and along with the shock of being busted for his (ahem) nocturnal artistic endeavours, Cheo was driven into extended hibernation.

Gleaning sustenance from video games and Japanese Manga, Cheo's talent slept like Rip Van Winkle for many a year, until the revitalised, shiny graffiti scene tempted him out of his cave for a second bite of the cake. Now older yet equally immature, Cheo has found the world just about ready for his odd and colourful scribblings.

Puma Trinomic

AW13 sees the return of the OG PUMA Trinomic XT1 & XT2 Plus Series. The re-issue is an exact replica of the 90's original - material for material, colour for colour. The PUMA XT+ Series didn't come back from the running dead to be quiet...

Transient

PUMA's launch event celebrated this cult classic re-release with a multi-sensory exhibition, created in an abandoned bunker in London. Showcasing the revolution that is PUMA's Trinomic technology, the exhibition detailed the history of the shoe with adverts taken from the PUMA archive, stacks upon stacks of the trade-mark PUMA green box complimented by luminous green lighting to reference the colour-pops on the shoe and sound projections from various designers, taste-makers and fans of the Trinomic XT+ Series for added impact.

Transient

The exhibition then followed on to a rooftop park where over 200 guests were treated to performances by DJ's Oli D.A.B & Robin, DJ Abstract & Shy FX (with a special appearance by Ms Dynamite!), with plenty of 90′s inspired drinks, snacks and gifts to keep the crowd well and truly hyped!

Transient

The PUMA Trinomic XT2 Plus is NOW AVAILABLE in Footpatrol, Hanon, End, Size?, PUMA Twentyone at BOXPARK & Cooshti in Bristol.
