A selection of paintings from my ‘Unholy Mountain’ show at Beach London, 20 Cheshire Street, London E2. 11 new paintings on canvas for sale as well as a zine I made especially for the exhibition. The show has now been extended until October the 12th.
Text across the knuckes reads ‘NADYA’. The ‘ring’ on the forefinger stands for ‘Rely on no one but yourself’, a ‘patsan’ one of the most privileged inmates VTK. Middle finger: ‘the thieves cross’ of a pickpocket. Third finger: ‘I served my time in full’, ‘From start to finish’, ‘Went without parole’, the prisoner served his complete sentence with no remission for working with the system. Little finger: ‘The dark life’ the bearer spent a lot of time in a punishment cell. The skull and crossbones, gun, knife and letter ‘K’[iller] denote a murderer. [x]
Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people, and finally I did on the open road. we had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore, except to make our lives into a work of art. live fast. die young. be wild. and have fun. I believe in the country America used to be. I believe in the person I want to become. I believe in the freedom of the open road. and my motto is the same as ever: “I believe in the kindness of strangers. and when I’m at war with myself I ride, I just ride.” Who are you? are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies? have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them? I have. I am fucking crazy. But I am free.
