Just a little something I decided to make dedicating to Ozzy.
This painting is quite unlike the things I usually create. It is pretty bloody…
I painted this picture 4 years ago when my character was a lot more influenced by all the dark and scary things.
Even I am glad this was just a phase it was necessery for me to regard life from different sides. The “dark” things helped me to understand, to discover the variety of life.
I moved to England when I was 20… I was just like I’m over America; I can’t deal with it any more. I wanna go learn about all the English stuff […] As you get older you kind of go back a little bit.[…] Suddenly I’d never been so American, he’d (Jamie) never been so English.
That’s a part of a painting I am working on. It is about being insecure but at the same time about growing; about seeing and learning.
"'Night after night the nightingale came to beg for divine love, but though the rose trembled at the sound of his voice, her petals remained close to him…'
Flower and bird, two species never meant to mate. Tet at length the rose overcame her fear and from that single, forbidden union was born the red rose that Allah never intended the world to know."

The story of the white rose who loved a nightingale against the will of Allah.
I call it art
A few days ago I discovered the song “I call it art”. It’s a cover of Serge Gainsbourg’s “La chanson de slogan” by the Kills and I am totally in love! The original has it’s own magic I don’t understand; but I can feel the magic of the cover by Alison and Jamie. It is simply the best cover I ever heard of a song… With the whole change of the lyrics… They made a whole new thing out of it, not a better thing, a new thing!
