Tyson Boxing T shirt as Landscape with my Shirt.
The inspiration for this painting came from a family safari to Kenya. It was just around the time that Mike Tyson was in disgrace, having bit Evander Holyfield on the ear.
We were out one day on route to the game park, traveling through a township market when Steven spotted a black and white printed T shirt featuring Mike Tyson, he got the driver to stop and ran back to buy it.
The t shirt forms the landscape at the bottom of the painting, while Steven’s own holiday shirt (which still hangs in his wardrobe) forms a representation of self while adding another landscape element of sky and sun.

Just a note to all to those who are attending the free Artist Teacher Master of Education Taster event on Saturday 7 February, – it starts at 11am in the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow. If you are registering for the Artist Teacher Programme at MEd/PGDip/PGCert levels for this Trimester and you have not heard back from me, it is simply because we have been exceptionally busy and we will soon be in touch.
