Marrakech Biennale

2016.03.01

Last week the Marrakech Biennale 6th edition launched. Founded in 2004, this is the first year that ‘street art’ has formed an integral part of the programme.

Alongside 10 other artists (from Moscow, Italy, UK, France, Germany and Morocco) I was invited to join the MB6StreetArt exhibition at the ‘BAB Groupe’ just nestled inside the Medina. Together we spread around Marrakech to paint murals within the city. All locations are on this map created by Urban Presents.

Exhibition study works ‘Male’, ‘Reliant’, ‘Female (plural)’, ‘Female (singular)’  Ink, acrylic, copper leaf on birch. 30 x 38cm 2016

Many thanks also to Ahmed, Amine and Ibrahim who helped with everything from ladders to sun hats.

Massive thanks to MB6StreetArt: Vestalia, Gladys, Elena and Terence for making it happen.

Ian Cox and Vanessa Lefebvre for the photography.

And of course to Matthew Watkins for keeping that rickety ladder upright to stop me falling off the roof…

So here I am…I was painting opposite local artist Kalamour. Each day we clambered up two levels, over Hassan’s corrugated iron home where he kindly took care of our brushes and paint overnight, and onto the fragile rooftops that skirt the Place des Épices within the Souks. This was a delicate manoeuvre, trying not to fall through and…not to tred on one of the many decomposing corpses littering the area. Huge eagles, owls, chameleons, various unidentified bones and skulls lay scattered around, half wrapped in plastic or hidden in bins and bags. Turned out the proprietor below is a witch doctor and these remnants was essentially his ‘supplies’…


Up high in the Atlas Mountains we painted the literacy school set up by the Abury Foundation.

A very warm and hospitable community who fed us throughout the day…

And finally…I never do interviews…even though i was dubbed with French translation I still don’t think I’ll ever do it again. TV. Not for me.

Collection…on show now

‘Xylella Fastidiosa I, II and III’ acrylic on canvas, 109cm diamter. 2015

.

I’ve been visiting Grottaglie for many years now, enjoying the olives harvested from the surrounding area.

This year however I’ve come to learn of the bacteria Xylella Fastidious that is spreading rapidly throughout Puglia destroying the olive trees,

some of which are hundreds of years old. It is a very sad time.

Preparing the canvases in the olive grove…
