Life Art In Life

Art I love to look at: Russian mafia grave art....

Prisoner art..

you can see all, buy and find out more at Koestler Trust exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall here - at weekends female offender curators of the exhibition take guided tours - brilliant scheme

and fairground art..

I love the silky airbrushed pseudo-realistic style of fairground art - makes it all the more exciting when you are there if they have the big colourful hordings everywhere. And I love the way they use celebrity to add to the smoke and mirrors effect of the fairground. Great people-watching too I always find.

From The Back Of My Notebook

Wolftank Systems.
Thonegger. We are in an industrial area.

Italy passes by at night to the sound of The Watt From Pedro Show and WWM podcasts. Inspiring. Lost in other worlds transported by people talking about tv, stuff, music, tours and people. Love it.

Stars are out, the mountains are clear. People are kind.

Hot face, lots of wood. Listening to bass. Thump on the snow. Bag doesn't fit in, everyone in ski lift ignoring the smell of puke and blaming it on the cheese that someone is taking up the mountain. I don't think so.

The police won't let us pass and I get spooked going for a wee behind a derelict mountain house. I am sure I am being watched.

Lost in the time zone, floating on the road.
