2014: Sun, Success and a Sorceress

Mark Wallis 2014 review 1

2012/13 were disasterous for me. But this year has been the charm. I saw Kate Bush live: the musical sorceress put on a show in London that blew us away in September – ‘There are no words’ said Panos. We travelled to Mount Olympus in sunny Greece and saw the most beautiful village in the world, Colmar in France. I exhibited my artwork in Manchester and London, set up my own online store and got a record 3,800 likes for my Tales of the City artwork via Armistead Maupin on Facebook. When I put it all together, I feel like Tigger.

Launching Mark Wallis Design took a lot of time and effort, but I also managed to remix Kate Bush and Goldfrapp, get back into oil painting, and meet Armistead Maupin! I might move slowly but I never keep still – Happy New Year to all.

Christmas Midgets by The Found Sound Orchestra

Mark:

“Laurence, Angela likes Demis Roussos. Tony likes Demis Roussos, I like Demis Roussos, and Sue would like to hear Demis Roussos: so please, d’you think we could have Demis Roussos on?”

It’s that time of year again! This is the perfect Xmas party playlist, featuring Nat King Cole, Julie London and Burt Bacharach as you’ve never heard them before. Possibly the most politically incorrect holiday music ever made, uploaded with full permission from The Found Sound Orchestra.

Kate Bush Before the Dawn Art Print

Kate Bush Before the Dawn Art Print by Mark WallisImagine if the cover of Kate Bush’s new DVD looked like this! It’s only unofficial fan art, but I’ve tried to capture the excitement of going to see the live show back in September. This is a celebration of the hugely emotional performance which made the dreams and nightmares of The Ninth Wave and A Sky of Honey into an epic reality. For three hours in Hammersmith, we perched on the edge of our seats like electrified meerkats, afraid to miss one second of Kate being shipwrecked, tried as a witch, drowned and then fired through an impossible sunset into space. Until the official live DVD, we can at least fantasise about that the cover might look like, which is available as a limited edition fine art print, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kate-Bush-Print-/221574377836?hash=item3396dcb16c&clk_rvr_id=712381339995
