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
Workshop and Brand Irish are both on Facebook and Twitter, and Brand Irish has a WordPress blog too
