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

Champagne for Everyone!

The Vibes 3rd birthday by Mark Wallis at thevibes.me

Dear readers, you’ll be relieved to hear I prepared an acceptance speech and left it on the London Underground. Three years of WordPressing – a lot of fun and a great deal of hard work. Pretty pictures don’t make themselves, but if they did, they might be a bit less over-saturated. I hope this little blog brightens your day in some small way. Cheers and thanks for following.

Breakfast in Mayfair

London Porches in Kensington, by Mark Wallis on thevibes.me

Elegant London

Waking up in the spring sunshine, stepping onto the balcony of my Nash terrace in one of London’s more exclusive squares, is a moment to savour. Until room service reminds me I have to check out. Set camera to Stun.

Greek Church Bayswater

The architecture of London is arresting, diverse and chaotic. Baroque and Brutalist, side by side. I can’t turn a corner without snapping away. I’m a tourist who stops traffic to get the perfect view, carrying a legal disclaimer for the police (written by the police) in case anyone tries to interfere.

Just a couple of days in the capital, a surprise whistle-stop tour.

It’s so hot on Oxford Street, we buy chilled coconuts and drink the milk through a straw. Luxury in the dust! The sun sets on Soho Square, and we have to make our way back to Manchester. For all the noise and chaos, London is a difficult city to leave.

Happy Ostara!

Ostara Hare by Mark Wallis on thevibes.meRainbows, downpours and sunshine. March hares are jumping. Shooting buds and rising sap. I feel like Tigger. Happy Ostara, the return of the sun. Forget easter with the naked guy in the diaper and all those creepy Cross People. Just celebrate nature.

The Crooked Man

The new one pound coin with george Osborne by Mark wallis at thevibes.me
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Look, everyone! Pretty new things! Anything to distract you from the worst government in British history. Should I submit my George Osborne update for the new one pound coin to The Royal Mint?
