I particularly became more connected with John Lennon towards the latter years of his life. Looking at his journey through music and the public perception of his personal life, I felt that he was constantly on a search for truth. As he grew through his musicianship so did he as a being internally/spiritually.
It was truly a joy to spend over 215 hours drawing a man who gave a lot through his music and also through his acts which branded him as a “Man of Peace”.
It was an honour to reveal this portrait of John Lennon to the public last week at my Solo Show: Retrospective at the Mall Galleries!
A HUGE thank you to all of you who came out to see the show and to everyone who helped bring the show to life! I was completely overwhelmed with the wonderful and kind reception.
Many thanks to Mall Galleries for providing me with the space to exhibit a selection of a decades worth of drawings and for also being the stepping stone in this artistic journey. 7 years ago, for the first time ever since graduating from university in 2009, I submitted a drawing into an Open Exhibition and it got accepted. That exhibition was The Threadneedle Prize at the Mall Galleries in 2012. Never did I imagine that very exhibition would be the kick-start which lead to a career in art.
