Day 1 Perth, Australia invited by Portal & Zekka

Graham Tabor and Miguel Villalobos

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The 24 hour ride to Perth actually was smooth as glass. I don't know what my energy level will be today but on arrival, I felt fine. Graham and Miguel are here for their installation which will be the first at the new gallery Portal + Zekka which will focus on international art and design. Graham and Miguel will show Hic & Nunc large scale sculpture, macrame,  jewellery, photographs and an amazingly beautiful book.

Liza Blakiston

I finally met the angel, Liza Blakiston, that is Graham Toabor behind her and in her hands is the beautiful book. Hic & Nunc opens  August 11th.

Around 1am Liza and I went to pick up  Konstantinos Menelaou, we were happy he was not in his neighborhood in Dalston where the riot is going on as we speak.
