ANDY HAMILTON DIES

I saw on the local TV news a few weeks ago that the Birmingham based Jazz legend Andy Hamilton died which I was very sad to hear. I think he was about 94 tears old. I’ll never forget the entrance that he mad when I went to his house for the first sitting with him, gliding down his stair lift with a sharp, pin striped suit and trilby, holding his sax and looking every part the legend that he was. More pictures of Andy to come…

Sunday Times Culture section 20.5.12



The Sunday Times Culture section did a piece on the relationship with Sport and Art , basically saying there is very little relationship, and Waldemar Januszcak surprisingly took the trouble to vists the current show at The New Art Gallery, Walsall ( see previous post) and kindly mentioned my portrait of Les and Ernie.

MURAL FOR SCARLETT’S ROOM

Anne and me spent a long Bank Holiday weekend doing a mural for Scarlett’s room, It’s difficult to know what she’s into at 6 months old so when our friends, Nige and Lauren, sent a Cornish picture for her we thought that would be a great theme because we go there a lot. She looks pretty dwarfed infront of the mural but she’ll grow into it.

GERMAN TV SHOW

A German TV company approached me and a few of the other artists from Plus One to do a show for them on Photorealism. The show is called Galileo and I understand from the producer that it is a German version of The South Bank Show but a bit more populist, so maybe with a bit of The One Show thrown in too. I recorded it a few weeks ago at the gallery in Chelsea and the background was mocked up to look like an artists studio. I was basically doing a lot of talking and they filmed me painting a little segment of a painting which I was working on. I think my painting of Ray, the floating tattooed man is also a big feature of the show. I think it’s going to be broadcast over the next few weeks.
