Stepping away from his Thames label and the skate world, Blondey McCoy recently announced he is set to launch an art exhibition titled, “All a Tremulous Heart Requires.”

Commisioned by biannual fashion magazine Arena Homme +, McCoy put together four new large form pieces to be displayed at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London, serving as the young skater, designer and artist’s homage to The Smiths, more specifically when guitarist Johnny Marr took off his guitar and danced with Morrissey to the bass solo of “Barbarism Begins at Home” at the Eldorado Club in Paris in 1984. Blondey’s pieces immortalize the iconic moment with life-sized scale laser cut pieces of acrylic laid over iPhone photos taken personally by Blondey at Morrissey’s recent solo show in Aberdeen.
