My exhibition came to a close on Sunday night and after about seven fun but chaotic weeks that preceded it, it’s actually great to get back to mundane everyday life for a bit.
The highlight of this week came on Tuesday night when Jorge and I ventured over to Bond Street, invited by the talented painter Pedro Paricio to a private shindig at the Halcyon Gallery to see an exhibition of Bob Dylan’s sculptures, paintings and prints. The art was okay; the people watching was brilliant.
Anyway, here’s a short video and a few links for the weekend.
