BLACK DOGS EXHIBITION…….

The DIY leeds based art collective black dogs are holding a special exhibition in the light shopping centre in central leeds. I have contributed a small sculpture to go along with this exhibition and if you can get down to it you shall see some amazing work (not mine) made from mostly recycled and free materials!
