Reflective. Pasteup components copied from a new Dalí overlap piece I made today. Making photocopies of overlapped transparency images of Dalí’s face as a part of some of my earliest street art pieces in 2010 was how I started on my subsequent exploration of #tranparencyoverlaycollage. #artprocess #photocopycollage #collageart #collage #SalvadorDalí #Dalí #pasteups #paste #pasteup #art #arte #kunst

'D.F.P. - Decorated For Peace' Medal - has been selected for this years Royal Academy of Arts (RA) Summer Exhibition. Half the 150 edition will be available through the RA, the second half will be available shortly through my website, link in bio. This medal was inspired by my first visit to Bethlehem, the Separation Wall and the artworks on the Wall. I was extremely touched by how friendly amd welcoming the local Palestinians were, their resilience to the situation, and the positive way they talked about Israelis; often having close Israeli friends. I was also surprised at their approach to religion, expecting them to be very vocal, however they would only say, '...it is between you and God, my friend'. The front of the medal represents a spray can top with text 'Peace' in Arabic, English and Hebrew, a statement of hope for the future - a Berlin-wall hope for the future. All profits generated from the sale of the medal will be donated to www.childrenofpeace.org.uk - they are a non-partisan children's charity who promote trust, friendship and reconciliation between Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4 - 17, and their communities. A big thank you to everyone, especially Mike and Matthew @bigburymint who manufactured the medal for me. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #medal #military #dfp #decoratedforpeace #sculpture #pasteup #peace #peaceispossible #arabic #hebrew #bethlehem #walledoffhotel #israel #palestine #visitpalestine #separationwall #reconciliation #unity #walledoffhotel #banksy #royalacademyofarts #summerexhibition #summerexhibition2018 #art #conceptualart #eel #eelarts
