Been going through my archives as I’m looking for photo sources for my upcoming show (more details very soon) and I spotted a set I took back in June.
I was in London to see Shura preview her debut album. I carried a small portrait with me to give her – rather randomly it was of Scarlett Johansson – and I got to meet her and her twin brother, Nick. Meeting them, and hearing the album and Shura talk about it was a lovely experience.
I hope she likes the painting… it was one I’d planned to hold onto, but it seemed like the right choice.
Anyway, here are the photos.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a decent picture of the event itself, or the required selfie I should have got with me next to Shura holding the painting, but it only occurred to me later… Perhaps it’s for the best… I tend to forget about photos when something really involving is going on… and the whole selfie thing is a bit too much.
Here is a so-so shot of the event and the portrait I gave Shu.
So, the point of the post is…
- I am (purely sonically) in love with Shura.
- I will be working on some of these London images for new paintings. Gloomy post-Brexit urban punkscapes anyone?
