‘Home Is Where The Park Is’
“People think they almost recognise the places I try to draw, but they could be anywhere really,” reflects this artist, who was homeless for a time and now is vulnerably housed.
His simple sketches vividly convey what it means to be “down-and-out” in London. “I see rough sleepers around town every day,” he goes on. “I identify with them, but I can’t really do much to help, except just being friendly.
I draw pictures of people in doorways, or sitting out on the street. I don’t do likenesses very often… I don’t want to be intrusive. I tend to draw approximations of what I see around the town. Typical scenes… all too typical.”
