Good news! My Van Gogh style painting Portrait of Ian Duncan Smith With Bandaged Nose has been selected to be exhibited at the Institute Of Mental Health via City Arts in Nottingham next month
It's been four years since I won the Headhunters competition to go to Oslo back in 2012 to see Apparatjik perform live at the opening of the AFM, and I'm returning to check out Magne Furuholmen's latest project at Fornebuporten as well as to visit Ekebergparken, which is where Edvard Munch was inspired to paint The Scream.
I regrettably couldn't be in Oslo earlier this week for a Peace Painting event at Radhuset, however, I'm looking forward to visiting the Nobel Peace Centre again, with new works Peace Cloud and Syria Is My Only Home along with Matthew Barney at the AFM, and Stian Andersen's photos of music icons - I have a packed itinerary!!
With recent news of hotel strikes in Oslo, I've managed to find an alternative place to stay via AirBnB, which is a new thing!!
