They Live

This references the 1980’s classic alien film ‘They Live’.
I was invited to be part of the last meeting of styles at the Nomadic gardens in East London. A community urban garden, an arts and music space near Brick Lane.  A space where people came together to laugh, sing, dance and drink.
The film ‘They live’ is about an alien race who walk the earth, only when you wear the magic sunglasses can you see them for what they really are and it’s pretty horrific.  In my painting the skull has the flesh dripping off in bright colours in a colourful macabre way.
I love painting skulls, I think it reminds me to live fully and try to not get too caught up in the details!
