Drawings made while making Rough Science 5 in Zanzibar
These sketchs and drawings were made as part of my NESTA fellowship work.
Dows and Palm tree
Carved door in Stonetown
Sleeping market trader
Electricity service cover, Stonetown, Zanzibar
(water colour ca. 30 x 40cm)
The painting was made a few years later. Zanzibar can have a 'rough and ready' feel to it and its not always comfortable walking around late at night. This painting of an old weather beaten electrical service cover I came across on a crumbling wall in Stonetown sort of summed up (in four languages: English, Arabic, Swahili and Indian) in my mind the need to keep alert.
