The sincerest form

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the person who painted the picture appearing on the left of London temporary bar/restaurant/club "The Double Club" should feel very flattered ...

... because I have reinterpreted the picture in my own way and using the colours that were left in my paint box. I call this picture "Jungle" for no reason other than because I can. I am particularly proud of the sharp edges, which are quite different to the other paintings I have done. This period in my career may well be defined by the use of masking-tape.

For my next painting, I intend to leave the jungle and other natural inspirations behind and instead forcus on terraced houses and other urban gems. Fans of dodgy art, stay tuned.
