If heart and soul are the vehicles for my art, Peckham is the fuel; at least for my current and most recent pieces. I wanted to celebrate how proud I feel to coinhabit this concrete chrysalis for creativity with humans from such diverse backgrounds. The hairdressers, fruit stall owners, workers at the independent coffee shops and bars – I salute you! The In PECKHAM series is gratitude on paper in honour of what you, and many others, bring to this vibrant place that we share.
These pieces are the result of a new exploration into typography, photography and screen printing. They shout out, ‘WE ARE HERE!’ ‘WE ARE IN PECKHAM!’
At the night of the opening, we enjoyed vegan food created by the talented Nutkin Cafe and drank sparkles.
The work will be on display till the end of May.
