Currently showing selected paintings from my recent Candles For Sandy collection at the new
Thompson's Contemporary Gallery, 594 Kings Road, London SW6 2DX. www.thompsonscontemporary.co.uk
Just finished this large canvas for a private client in Queens Park, London. The double-height atrium space has a walkway along one side on first floor level so the artwork can be viewed from loads of angles. Bucket-loads of natural light and white walls gave it a cool gallery feel.

My new (2nd) favourite restaurant. If you like pizza, then get down to Roberta's in Brooklyn.
The fascia is a bit unassuming, granted, but such greatness lies within. [website]
I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I'll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you
Frankie Goes To Hollywood, 1984
New paintings are starting to emerge, inspired from my photo journal and found source material while living in NYC (it's heaven for a magpie like me).
'Candles For Sandy' is an ongoing body of work based on my encounters before, during and after the hurricane.
Strange to be living in NYC during hurricane Sandy.
Some amazing photos have emerged, it's hard to imagine
this photo was taken in Queens, it reminds me more of India.
