so fantastic to have 2 paintings in Barcelona at Workshop in Raval. Opening on Saturday night was fantastic, with a great 3 piece band and a warm welcome from Kat Penney the curator and Sara Gibbings, directir at PadiProductions for the documentary they are making, Brand Irish.
I arrived slightly earlier than expected, rather flustered, straight from my flight from Dublin. Thoroughly overexcited like a kid on Christmas morning!

Went on a 4 hour ramble through the backstreets of Barcelona this morning (Sunday 9th November 2014). Amazing graffiti, even building sites are cool in Barcelona!

After a good wander round the Barri Gothic, came back up to Raval and into the c alm beautiful courtyard of the old hospital building which now houses a library, and where there were some great statues, this one particularly lovely with her Barcelona style adornments!

These two paaintings, ‘underneath’ and’sea bed’ have been selected to be exhibited at Workshop, a new gallery space in Raval, Barcelona. I have just booked my flights to go over for the opening night.

Woa, you might say, isnt that a bit extreme to go so far just because two paintings have been selected for a group show?

Well the other exciting news is that while I am there I am going to be interviewed and therefore might appear in a new documentary film called Brand Irish being made by a film company based in Barcelona called PadiProductions

PadiProductions have won awards for their previous productions including Zero Tolerance
