FALLING IN LOVE

Life as an artist is sometimes a hard road to walk, first you need high level of self belief also you need others to enjoy what you believe in and what you are producing,  when you rely on selling your work to support you family and things don't go as planed its easy to let self doubt creep in, give up and throw it all away..  

Recently I have found myself falling in love with an old flame, one that over recent years I have neglected, one that I have not put enough time into, one that I had almost forgotten about..

That love is painting, pure and simple paint on canvas.




INCOMPLETE






Incomplete

Incomplete is the melody without the words

Incomplete is the scabbard without the sword

Incomplete are those emotions that I could never feel
Incomplete are the wounds that could not heal



Incomplete are the clouds that could not rain

Incomplete is every loss without the pain

Incomplete is that wait which never ends
Incomplete are those letters which I could never send



Incomplete is every house without a family

Incomplete is any argument that never ended calmly

Incomplete is every touch without a feeling
Incomplete are those names without a meaning



Incomplete is even my story that I could not tell

Incomplete is everything that I dropped in the dirty well

Incomplete is my every morning without sunshine

Incomplete is also that dictionary which does not define Incomplete

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Blast from the past, subverting advertising..

COP21 Brandalism Project...

Honoured to be asked again to work with the boys over at Brandalism on the COP21 project in December 2015.  More details on the project can be found here & below...


EYESAW'S contribution to COP21

The press release;

'Over 600 artworks critiquing the corporate takeover of the COP21 climatetalks were installed in advertising spaces across Paris this weekend -ahead of the United Nations summit beginning Monday 30 November.
Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatheringsfollowing the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the'Brandalism' project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorised artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change. [1[1]
The artworks were placed in advertising spaces owned by JC Decaux -one of the world's largest outdoor advertising firms and an officialsponsor to the COP21 climate talks.Other prominent corporate sponsors of the climate talks such as AirFrance, GDF Suez (Engie) and Dow Chemicals are parodied in the posters -whilst heads of state such as Francois Hollande, David Cameron, BarackObama, Angela Merkel and Shinzo Abi also feature.  
The artworks were created by over 80 renowned artists from 19 countries across the worldincluding Neta Harari, Jimmy Cauty, Banksy-collaborator Paul Insect,Escif and Kennard Phillips - many of whom featured at Banksy's Dismalandexhibition in England this summer. [2]
Joe Elan from Brandalism said, "By sponsoring the climate talks, majorpolluters such as Air France and GDF-Suez-Engie can promote themselvesas part of the solution - when actually they are part of the problem." 
Elan continued, "We are taking their spaces back because we want tochallenge the role advertising plays in promoting unsustainableconsumerism. Because the advertising industry force feeds our desires for products created from fossil fuels, they are intimatelyconnected to causing climate change. As is the case with the Climatetalks and their corporate sponsored events, outdoor advertising ensuresthat those with the most amount of money are able to ensure that theirvoices get heard above all else." The art works were installed on 'BlackFriday' or 'Vendredi Noir'; the most hectic and competitive shopping dayof the year [3].
Other posters called on people to take to the streets as part of the"Climate Games" - the world's largest disobedient adventure game [4] as well as protesting the "Solutions 21" conference - a large corporate exposition being held at the Grand Palais during the climate talks [5].

Bill Posters from Brandalism said "Following the tragic events on 13th November in Paris, the government has chosen to ban the big civilsociety mobilisations - but big business events can continue. The multinationals responsible for climate change can keep greenwashing their destructive business models, but the communities directly impacted by them are silenced. It's now more important than ever to call outtheir lies and speak truth to power. We call on people to take to thestreets during the COP21 to confront the fossil fuel industry. We cannotleave the climate talks in the hands of politicians and corporatelobbyists who created this mess in the first place."'

"THIS GRAFFITI IS REVOLTING"



"THIS GRAFFITI IS REVOLTING" a common concern voiced by local councils and government officials. well guess what...? IT IS.... It's revolting against the System, the system put in place by the power hungry 1% that run the world, the large corporations and advertisers that pollute our visual landscape with their skyscrapers and adverts (corporate graffiti).

Graffiti’ has a long history as a tool of political communication, whether in the form of slogans, stencils or posters.
Due to the nature of its DIY ethic, it is an inexpensive, easy to produce and uncensored source of communication.

In times of recession, social deprivation and civil unrest ‘Graffiti’ is adopted as a visual symbol of resistance, a form of communication that empowers ordinary individuals to present their views demands, needs and ideas.
