The latest film from my boy Andy Telling in collaboration with Owen Richards, following photographer Robin Friend deep into a Welsh mine. Highly recommended.
I spent a week in the Middle East, painting in both Israel and Palestine. I brought my boy Andy with me to film it all so we’ll have a short lil film coming out at some stage. It was one of those trips where you’ve no idea whats ahead. You can only prepare for so much and remain open to all eventualities. I think I need a holiday.
I gotta say thanks to Know Hope and Zero Cents in Tel Aviv for all their help and hospitality. Thats what I love about this world of ours, you can contact an artist in another country that you’ve never met and they’ll sort you out.
So this is the spot that I painted with Know Hope in Tel Aviv. Fantastic central location.
The view from our rooftop.
And then we climbed in here..
And I painted this.
Nothing makes a Corkman feel at home like finding his local drink on the other side of the world.
Local street action..
Andy, my man with the camera.
And a few days later I got stuck in to the security barrier in Bethlehem. I’ll try and get my photos from Palestine up in the next few days.
