Plenty more Miro at the Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma, including these two splendid figures from Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi (or possibly, Ubu’s Childhood)

Soller railway station in Mallorca contains a small but exquisite art gallery, all too easy to miss, that contains paintings and lithographs by Joan Miro and some wonderful ceramics by Pablo Picasso. These are a few of my favourites.

In Deia, Mallorca, Julia and I wandered up to the cemetery, expecting to find the grave of Robert Graves, which we did. We didn’t expect to find the grave of 60s psychedelic pioneer and founder member of Soft Machine, Kevin Ayres. I don’t think I’d even heard that he’d died. Ayres is buried, according to his wishes, next to his best friend and collaborator, guitarist Ollie Halsall, who died in Deia in 1992. The inscription under Ayres’ name reads: “Well, that was something, as opposed to nothing 1944-2013”

Streatham Megabowl 2014

Flash forward to 2014 and the comics and model pages have been sadly painted and graffitied over but the result is another wonderful series of accidental abstracts of a different kind, some recalling the work of Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell, as well as Streatham based Battle Of The Eyes, who will be exhibiting and appearing in the Oxfam Furniture Shop, Streatham High Road on Saturday 12th July, as part of this year’s Streatham Festival . Sadly or not, depending on your point of view, the Megabowl is to be demolished and redeveloped into shops and apartments and though the facade is to be maintained, the boards and abstracts will gone.

Streatham Megabowl 2012

A couple of years ago I took these shots at the abandoned and shuttered Streatham Megabowl, whose boards were bizarrely plastered with layers of pages torn from old comics and model directories. Some of the shots made their way into a slideshow movie, Streatham Textures, that I put together to accompany live painting shows by Streatham based Battle Of The Eyes and were also incorporated a promo I made for them entitled, What We Do
