So UBIK and myself were asked to help out at the Flash Forum in December. Arriving in Abu Dhabi I was greeted by Inkie and his crew from Bristol, including: Cheo, Epok, Soker, 3Dom and 45Rpm. Together they'd been at work for two solid days on a 30 metre wall adjacent to the concert stage featuring The Narcyssict, Nelly Furtado and others. It transpired that UBIK and I were to run the graffiti workshops for kids (read: 50 odd little brats running around with aerosols, gas masks and far too much energy for my hungover state).
The afternoon culminated with a "spray-off" between Inkie and 3Dom
As some of my followers know I was nominated for this prestigious award last year. I didn't win- losing out to the author and motivational speaker Mariam Behnam. At 90 years of age, this veteran of the Arts in the U.A.E is quite a firecracker and was the well-deserved winner of the title. As the youngest nominee I conceded defeat at the bar and spent most of the evening posing for photos and vandalising the massive portrait of myself erected on the red carpet.
