A SERIES OF  NEW LARGE SCALE OILS 

AS I am working on each oil painting for a few  years,  the NEW SLOW pace spoken of during LOCKDOWN  is about par for the course for me. My new large scale work, follows on from several exhibitions (Compulsive Beauty 2014, Vertigo 2016, PAINTOPOLIS 2019) at The Ben Oakley Gallery. My lifelong subject matter has been 'The Sublime' -the Beauty/horror axis. Now like all of us, I'm living in new territory. I'm trying to make sense of this, using atmospheres of gaseous oil colour, drips and glazes, a vulnerable beauty.   As this new reality beckons BAMBI et al. Post global lockdown, I look  to the brilliant optimism of british  POP art of the 60s. Hopefully a A Brave New World awaits us........see my instagram account for these works

Or so they say. This weekend, Dazed flew out to Lagos, Nigeria for the third annual MTV Africa Music.

 

Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
