It is really nice talking to you again. I've got lots of great news for you. The last few weeks have been really busy for me. From exhibiting my work in different galleries to finalising my new series of works of art. I was very happy to join forces again with great fashion brands at the successful Eco-Fair hosted by Debut Contemporary Gallery in collaboration Fashion ComPassion, which had huge press coverage from “Style On Paper”, “Kensington & Chelsea Today” to “Is Fashion Art”.
Another memorable night was the Cultivate Summer Flower Show in Vyner Street where hundreds of people showed up to celebrate flowers and art with the exhibiting artists.
The most recent event was with Degree Art Gallery at the Affordable Art Fair in Bristol where the piece has sold in minutes after the opening. That was a WOW!
But what has really made my last few months worthwhile was the fact that I have finalised my new series of works of art. After a couple of months of struggling,with the help of really special people, I have manage to purchased the art materials that I need and completed the works of art that both you and I have been waiting for. Some of the art works are published on my website but the rest I am keeping as a surprise for the next few coming shows.
I have the great pleasure of inviting you to see my work in these two exciting events coming up this week:
PINTAR RAPIDO is coming to London! Originating from Spain and meaning "painting quickly", Pintar Rapido is an exciting new art show that celebrates the urban spaces and places we live and work in. Hundreds of artists will come together on Saturday July 13th to paint live on the streets of Kensington & Chelsea to capture the spirit of the borough in a painting. The following day all their work will be exhibited at Chelsea Old Town Hall on the King’s Road where you can buy direct from the artists. On the 13th of July as part of Pintar Rapido Exhibiton I will take some of my watercolours and paper, choose my own location anywhere in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and paint all day to capture the spirit of the borough. The surprise is that I would love to take this occasion and invite you along with me to spend one day while I am painting! Plus you will get a free lesson in how to paint. I can only take 5 people with me so if you are interested please respond to my newsletter ASAP.
Pintar Rapido is a celebration of creative talent and the city backdrop that inspires artists of all styles to create a painting in a day. Join us in the historic Chelsea Old Town Hall for the sale of works of art direct from the artist on Sunday 14th July 2013. You never know you could see a picture of your own favourite place!

19th June 2013 - An event not to be missed! Ever wondered how fashion and art combine? Renowned West London based art gallery Debut Contemporary will host the second of a three part collaborative event with UK-based sustainable fashion retailer, Fashion ComPassion, that merges fashion and art in the most unique manner.
The second of the three-part event series will be held on 19th June as a one night only sales evening at the Gallery on 82 Westbourne Grove, London, W2 5RT, with an exclusive ECO-FAIR themed evening with cocktails made with FAIR. Quinoa Vodka, the 1st vodka made from Quinoa and the 1st Premium fair trade certified vodka.
The event will showcase exquisite eco-friendly & sustainable fashion brands from the UK and various parts of the world together with stunning pieces created by emerging artists from Debut Contemporary - the innovative professional development platform, mentoring and supporting aspiring and ambitious creative stars of the future. The brand Fashion ComPassion – Rags2Riches, SUPU, Abo London & BACA Jewellery, create pieces of art that convey a story, focusing on environmentally friendly production to show how ethics and fashion are combined to create unique high end products. These desirable pieces will be combined with Debut Artists Anja Kleemann-Jacks, David Booth and I who also delineate similar narratives, highlighting social and ethical issues in our economy and ecosystem. We celebrate sustainability, recycling and the environment in our work through painting, collage and installation.
“The Eco-Fair event will bring sustainable fashion to the forefront by showcasing fashion that combines design & eco-friendly production at its core. We want to show that fashion and ethics together can produce trendy, affordable & unique collections that are must-haves.“ says Ayesha Mustafa, Founder and Director of Fashion ComPassion.
And heres my opinion:
I am very happy to be selected in this collaboration as I was previously inspired by their story and the care they show for the environment. I was also familiar with the continuing successful events they run. I wanted to share my insight and raise awareness about many serious environmental challenges as global warming we all are facing. I particularly love the ABO London scarf’s as they remind me of my organic landscapes. The way the scarf elegantly takes shapes around the neck is the way my landscapes of paint take shapes on different platforms. I love the connection between art and fashion as both are strong elements of style and expression, which are empowering elegance and sophistication. I love the ABO London`s luxury silk scarves and the fact that they are using high quality eco-friendly fabrics as I am a supporter of protecting the environment.
Tomorrow evening, Saturday the 18th of May 2013, you are inivtied to my one day exhibition at the 13 The Gallery. There you will have the opportunity to see some of my old works on paper. Check it out, it will be amazing to see another side of my creativity :D
