National Poetry Day

Sod it!… Bloody hell!!!!

Lots more swear words # ***&***~~~~#+###

Remember the day yes remember

Poets need more than one efffffffing day a year

Remember that as you grab the last loo paper from the wall

I write not to order but like when the need is toooooo much to keep in

Again we are back in the loo 

I don’t want to write deep down in a coal mine or as a monster

But thoughts of a lusty woman in a hat and I’m all ink…


Poem and collage made from snaps I took in Berkhampstead today 2nd October (National Poetry Day). Rummaging around the town I found unsigned art, unloved in dusty old shops waiting for my camera to add life once more. Yet it was sad not to take any home. But their spirit now captured alive for ever more ….. Mitch

Welcome To The Wick

I want to write a symphony but I can’t write music

Maybe I can do it on camera

Layers yes layers of sound I lay down in snaps

No strings just walls, a tap above an unseen sink

From Hackney Wick the score is shot

I thank the Wick for a welcome chance to write my symphony 

Music… a collage and that sounds good to me

Alo ~ Hail to the loser

Posted in Artwork, arty farty, Graffiti, Head, London, observation, Off The Wall with tags , , on July 21, 2014 by lkthayer



From Street Artist to Saatchi Gallery. The very first time I saw Alo on the walls of East London… I was blown away with the colour and design! I’m so pleased the Italian artist is about to make one hell of a splash into the artyfarty art world. I very much hope thou that Alo will still paint on the streets and not just sell out to canvas in galleries.

Alo ” Hail to the Loser” The exhibition runs from 29 July – 18 August 2014 at the Saatchi Gallery, King’s Road, London. Open 10am till 6pm every day. Of course there is still stuff on the streets to admire as well!Snaps from his street art by Mitch Hicks

Goya dreams of painting trains

Posted in Artwork, arty farty, Dog, London, observation with tags , , , on July 19, 2014 by lkthayer







Can I really write about Goya and John Dolan in the same post?
They both have a dark side and a love of art. Maybe even trains!
Having just returned from Slovenia and this time I got to see the Goya exhibition in Lendava Castle.

John has just had his life story published and I took my daughter along to meet him and buy his book for her at the Howard Griffin Gallery, Shoreditch, London. “The Dog Who Changed My Life”….. Of course George (The dog) is the real star. I guess dreams do come true if of course you wake up!
