Sometimes we crow about being up there in the clouds

Sometimes it’s just crowing with a bleeding heart

Sometimes the earth is scorching every cell under foot

Sometimes just sometimes there is always that silent crow

The tree now standing tall

Lights reflecting our passing lives

Darkness abounds

Scuttling folks hiding shadows

Overflowing fountain of youth now washed away

If only one could turn the lights back on is my remark

I really don’t like swimming in the dark

Giles Walker quite a remarkable artist….. ” The Last Supper” ~ This is truly a masterpiece and is now showing alongside his new artwork ~ “The Balloon Seller & Other Tragedies’’~ There can be no better venue than under the dark archers that carry the ghostly rumbling trains into and out of Waterloo Station. Both sound and visual with robotic animation seeping thru the mortar into your bones and swells the eyes with candle smoke engulfing  every sense you have!!!! This is art to eat as supper before bedtime! The exhibition has been put on by the charming folks from the Black Rat Project. http://www.blackratprojects.com/

Hurry down as the exhibition only runs for a few days at Gallery 223, Lower Marsh Street, London, SE1 7AE.  Here are the days to view :  Friday December 5th & Saturday December  6th, 12pm – 6pm ~ Sunday 7th December, 12pm – 4pm ~ Thursday 11th December, 12pm – 6pm ~ Saturday 13th December, 12 – 6pm ~

like an old unused camera

forgotten face on peeling paint

fused entwined snap 

life is like a roll of film waiting to be developed

Soooooo pleased to have met Stik in Acton! His largest artwork to date “Big Mother” seen being painted on the side of Charles Hocking House in South Acton, is a whopping 38.2 meters high! http://londonist.com/2014/11/stik-paints-worlds-tallest-street-artwork.php  http://stik.org/news.html
