There’s a huge wealth of¬† material about¬†the project – the single biggest solo-artist¬†street art project EVER in London – ¬†¬†out there, from a BBC film shown all over the world during the Olympics, to my own blog.

5 years since THE KING’S LAND

Hey, it’s 5 years since I did the King’s Land project in Haggerston East London, in spring-summer 2012. I spent 4 months covering a condemned housing estate in murals – all of them drawn by hand! Not a spray can in sight. A lot of it was paste ups but some of it I painted directly on the wall. Will post more of this over the next few days.

The idea was not to do ‘street art’ as much as, to activate the space, to bring life into a dead zone.

From Dalston to Dubai …

DUBAI March 2107

From Dalston to Dubai …

I¬†hope to see you in Dubai Mojo Gallery¬†from ¬†the 13th of March 2017 during …. ¬†DUBAI ART FAIR.

“Triumvirate” brings together 3 artists with origins in Africa (Egypt and Senegal) exploring our own “individual cultural influences and self expression” through work that “reveals, re-configures and explores some of the countless facets and layers of Africa‚Äôs identity.” In any case, my work is a colour riot and into the pot I’ve thrown all kinds of sights and impressions from London streets to Egyptian myth.

Demented

Over 10 years ago and after the death of my father I painted this 120x180cm canvas

days after i finished ,i painted over it

i felt that the subject is too dark and too negative to be shared with  the world.

I made a decision then to paint about the joy of living, positive vibes and enlightenment .

but today’s piece of history ,Donald Trump being an elected president of the United States of America

forgive people  me this the  only kind of painting you are gonna get from me today

we’re going to reap just what we sow

Liverpool: performance drawing

Here I am in the land of the Beatles (not to mention Carcass, Elvis Costello and George Melly) Last time I was here was to see Rene Magritte, now it’s me here performing at 2 shows this weekend.

First up, tomorrow (Saturday) is at the World Museum. This is a truly amazing museum with tons of cool stuff I can’t wait to see – everything from ¬†amazing Aztec and American aboriginal art (Love that stuff) to an Egyptian mummy with a Fayumi portrait, to samurai armour, to a real meteorite. There’s also a Planetarium and – uhhh – a Bug House . I’ll probably give the Bug House a miss ūüôā

check it out:

I’ll be performing at 2 pm ¬†and 3 pm, doing drawing performance, exploring the relationship between drawing, movement, mark-making and the body.

above – my show last year at the British Museum in London

Sunday I’ll be performing again at the Bluecoat

The Bluecoat is a very different vibe from the World Museum, so it will make a nice contrast and I’m interested how it’ll shape the work. The WM is a repository of world arts and sciences, while the Bluecoat is one of Liverpool’s premier spaces for contemporary culture. It’ll be a great day as there’s a ton of good things on at the Bluecoat that day.
