Roa hits East London


Pure Evil galleries are currently hosting a Roa exhibition. He's the guy that's associated with large brush style animal pieces. I first spotted his work earlier in the year with a rabbit that made great used of a cantilever garage door to show two different views depending on how you look at it.

Along with the gallery he's also put a number of pieces up around the Hackney and Brick Lane area. I managed to find all but 2 of them, which couldn't be seen as they're on shop shutters and the shops were open for trade today. I'll need to go back to Brick Lane either first thing in the morning or at night.

Trip to Poland



This weekend I went to Poland taking in Katowice, Chorzow, Auschwitz, Berkinau, Krakow and Poland . The trip had been planned for sometime and it was just very bad luck that whilst there the country's President died in a plane accident and the city went into a state of mourning meaning lots of places closed and I didn't get to do everything I wanted to. I also had an issue with the pre-ordered train tickets and got attacked by a dog.

and I will be going back to Katowice and Krakow and probably visiting Lodz and Gdansk.
