Vote for me! Making Manchester’s Gay Village sexy again.

Molly House Manchester Mural Competition entry 20 by Mark Wallis
Regular readers of The Vibes will be familiar with this piece of art which I produced back in the mists of time. I’ve entered it in a mural-painting competition at Manchester’s Molly House pub in the Gay Village. The idea is to bring art into the Village to make the bars and buildings more vibrant and interesting. There are 29 entries which you can view here http://goo.gl/FR78rA and my entry is Number 20. If you’d like to vote, and I’d really appreciate if you did, my lovely readers (all 1400 of you!) you can do so here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RSMCLVH where you can award Gold, Silver and Bronze to three lucky artists. The competition closes at the weekend so vote now, thanks.

The ultimate aim of the competition is to raise funds to have an art space in the Village, so it’s a good cause and fantastic publicity for me! Below you can see how a page from a magazine became a paper collage, digital painting and then (you decide) maybe a three-storey mural.

The Making of X

Or how to make an oil painting in two minutes. Just film 3 weeks’ work and speed it up! Is it blasphemy or bondage? See more here.

Mark of the Cross People

For the first time in 15 years, I’m painting again, exhibiting my work at the Sin In My Heart show in Manchester. Once upon a time, in Amsterdam, I had one of my oil paintings up in a sex shop. But as our curator, Paul Darling remarked, nobody goes to a sex shop to look at the art! When word went out that the theme of the new exhibition was sex, death, sin and religion, I put myself forward as a contributor. How could I not?

Announcing my new piece, oil on canvas 76x91cm, entitled X (the following is NSW) Continue reading

Pirates Ahoy!

Poster for Goldfrapp's Thea - Totem Mix by Mark Wallis of The Devious Corporation

This week I had two videos pulled from YouTube. People were claiming to be me and trying to get credit for my remix and the little movie I made to go with it. I was going to leave them to it, flattered that they liked my stuff, but then I remembered the mountain of work involved in completing both the video and the soundtrack. And none of this was for personal gain – just a tribute to my favourite band. For a humble fan-mix, it’s certainly caused some trouble…
