451 / Rethinking space and time

I had an amazing chat with one of my best friends Carlos Mare this evening… So lucky to have friends like this in my life.
He straightened out a few crumples for me and also made me realise the importance of being earnest.

He also told me how as an artist, I need space and time. Space to think and time to let those thoughts become something more.

I made this painting with another great friend Jaybo sitting looking over my shoulder, almost a year ago.
It says a lot about me as an artist and it reflects my current mood and my need to rethink my space and time.

450 / National Youth Arts Trust charity event

Last night was mad, I painted a chair to be auctioned off at a charity event for the National Youth Arts Trust, the chair made £600 and I also made a quick painting which made a healthy sum for the charity too.

The Auction was led by comedian Stephen Mangan and artist extraordinaire Grayson Perry.

I have to say a big thanks to my old friend Butch for getting me involved and making it happen.

447 / Life imitating art

A bit behind on this post as Shok1 and myself did this a good few weeks ago…
It’s a more conceptual approach to our recent collaborations ‘Life imitating art’ is an experiment in re-imagining a piece of art.

I painted my geometric construction first and Shok followed my contours and shapes to recreate his own interpretation with his now trademark x-ray style.

446 / Excuse My French – Galerie Celal

I had an amazing night at the vernissage of mine and RCF1’s new show; Excuse My French at Galerie Celal this week. We had some legends pass through too, Quik, Sharp, Ogre, Alex One, Kan DMV Crew and so many others.

Big thanks to RCF and to Galerie Celal for being perfect hosts…

444 / AOC mural – Koutoubia, Marrakech

Today is my last day in Marrakech, it’s been incredible! The people are incredible here and the colour and light are beyond beautiful.

Myself, Carlos Mare, Steve More, LX One, Derm and Jaybo all worked on this mural in the heart of the city in front of the long since derelict Koutoubia Hotel. So many local thanked us for our gift and one man, Mohammed even helped us paint the wall.

I shall definitely leave this country with renewed faith in mankind.
Plus a few amazing memories and colours.

442 / Unfolding – Agents Of Change in Marrakech 01

So far we’ve painted a mural in the heart of Marrakech with the worst materials known to man and 40 plus degree heat… Almost lost one of the team to heat stroke, climbed a mountain and opened a wonderful show to a even more wonderful crowd.
Here’s a few pics from the first couple of days. Many more to come…
