His work at the moment is known as paste-up although his does dabble with stencils.

These are paper works of art and incidentally, also available to buy on his website at:


The tag D7606 came from British Railway‘s diesel locomotive number. In a previous life he was a keen photographer of all things to do with railways.


D7606 wanted to do something different with paste ups he had seen around and he has a love all things British plus an appreciation of famous ladies from the past, so the two just kind of combined and happened.

His paste-ups can be found all over the country, including London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham
