Parow mural in progress


Work in progress on a new wall situated in the Parow station arcade Cape Town
With hundreds of people passing by daily on route to the train station this is a very diverse area with people from all over.

At first I wanted to paint a portrait of and pay tribute to someone working in the area.

India

I was invited to participate at the Matheran Green Festival 2015 in India

My experience of painting this wall was unforgettable!
Everyone looked after me and just wanted to help me.
The conditions were pretty extreme but with the help of so many people the process was enjoyable
I was treated so well and I think people really appreciated this mural.
The entire experience in India was nothing short of Magic

The murals title is ‘EARTH’ and is the continuation a series of works looking at and fragmenting the relationship between human and nature.

Special thanks to Sukant for making this happen

New mural: The Abstract and the Absolute


I have just completed a new mural here in Melbourne as part of my residency body of work; ‘The abstract and the absolute’ witch explores the relationship between human and nature and how it has become so distant and filtered behind a lens or a screen. This experience becomes a photocopy of another copy distorted and abstracted through reproduction.
The idea is that the mural is not a painting of nature but rather a painting of a photocopy of nature.
