Very happy to be joining the ranks of Axisweb, an organisation set up to promote excellence in the endeavours of artistic practice. Its very cool to be involved with artistic communities such as these. heres the site and I shall post a link to my axis portfolio when ready. https://www.axisweb.org
Hoping to get some half descent studio time in this weekend. Crap weather at this time of the year, not great for motorbikes. Still thrashing it out with a self portrait, well its more of study on colour and pastel work. Or a little self indulgence.......
Couldn't resist showing the next generation artist, my daughter Suhraya.
In what is fast becoming one of the most exciting art projects of the year so far, Fifty Children Fifty Artists has announced an exhibition of all fifty portraits, each of a Tower Hamlet's child, at the Shoreditch Town Hall between 23rd - 27th March. Artists include Emma Sergeant, Daphne Guinness, Christian Furr, Robbie Wraith, James Lloyd, John Wragg, Tai Shan Schieren, Zachary Walsh, Eileen Cooper and Jessica Albarn.
Tower Hamlets has one of the highest rates of child deprivation in the UK. The Fifty Children Fifty Artists art project was launched by the charity Miracles UK in January 2014 to help raise awareness of such extreme child poverty in one of London's most exciting and eclectic boroughs.
The project hopes to bring attention to the huge problem the borough faces and raise money in donations and sponsorships in a positive and engaging way, that not only supports those in need, but offers the Tower Hamlets children an exciting and long-lasting experience.
Exhibition details: Fifty Children Fifty Artists. Shoreditch Town Hall, EC1.
23rd - 27th March 2015. 10am – 5pm.
All finished art works are for sale.
Signed original postcards will be on sale at the exhibition, so anyone could walk away with an affordable piece of art.
