Halfway to Nowhere

Earlier in the year LA photographer Birdman took me, Charlotte my trusty assistant and another artist Echo out into the desert on route to Vegas…..

….What he wanted to show us was a water park that was built in the 1980’s to look like the 1950’s and abandoned in the 2000’. A very creepy remnant of a failed American Dream. You may have seen this place on road trips to and from LA and Las Vegas but didn’t know exactly what it was. Out there we met up with Sawa, artist and suicide Girl photographer, who was chilling with Lass and Moon (suicide girls) :
With temperatures reaching past 100F and the constant fear of getting killed by tweakers lurking we managed to get the main entrance building covered and shoot some crazy desert life photos…….

Birdman had an itch to bring this place to life, and did a few trips there with other artist; MEGGS, RISK and UGLAR, and put together this video:

SAWA also made a film about that crazy day in the desert…… Watch hers here:

Thanks to all that were invovled in that awesome adventure! x

GIF-ITI in the GAMBIA

AfricaHut600

AfricaHutCloseUp600

LYNX AFRICA (yes the smell of teenage boys) has just turned 18! And to celebrated being grown up they commissioned 18 artists to make a piece of work inspired by Africa. Me being one of them:

It was only after I had had all the inoculations and boarded the plane that I realised I had misread the brief of ‘Make a piece of work inspired by Africa’ to Make a piece of work IN Africa!
Anyway it worked out well as I couldn’t think of a better way to produce a piece of work inspired by a place than actually visiting it. I flew to The Gambia and spent some time in and around the villages on the mangroves of Makasutu Jungle. I painted a traditional african thatched mud hut that belong to Saloum and his 2 wives and many children. Saloum was particularly pleased with the marching elephants as they have pretty much been wiped out in The Gambia apart from the one owed by the president.
