The Hangzhou Hall of Fame

Here's my new project, it's gone through a few working titles "My Mates and other Legends', 'The Usual Suspects' and 'The Fallen Wall' but I'm going with 'Hangzhou Wall of Fame' at the moment.

So what is it?

It started off with me trying a new technique, I was lying in bed one night and thinking 'I wonder if it's possible to get someone's character into a painting using 3 colours, so I started to study it using white, black and then a pantone mid-tone colour.

It's also about saying thanks to people who have supported me over the last 10 years of my painting and also a celebration/tribute to the characters that I've met in the last 10 years of living in China.

I'm intending on doing at least 60 of these mini portraits and hanging them together in some bar/club.

Here's the collection so far (click to enlarge):

Do I've finished phase 1 of the project, this is ongoing so I'll be adding images to this over time.

Here's a video of the wall...it's huge!

I'm posting them onto this page as soon as they're finished, keep a look out...next time it could be you!
