Street Portrait (for an unnamed rock star), 2012

It was the coat I spotted first. When I caught up with this guy, I couldn’t quite believe how good his look was. Out of shot are a fine pair of brothel-creepers. We had a bit of a chat, and he revealed that he is in a band, but I didn’t get his name (or find out what instrument he plays) – I gave him my card. Hopefully he’ll get in touch and fill in some of the missing details. Anyway, thanks for agreeing to all the shots! Hope you like your picture.

This was taken somewhere near Covent Garden, London, UK. I failed Geography at school.

If you’re in London anytime up to the 2nd December, I strongly recommend you visit Simon Martin’s new exhibition, UR Feeling, at Camden Arts Centre. He’s brought together a fascinating selection of architectural, art and design objects for your consideration. Works include his own, Ettore Sottsass’, and Richard Artschwager. I think it’s a game changer.
