Ayah Marar is at it again, busy being brilliant and productive. I love her new style and the new music video to her latest release “Unstoppable” is great. It reminds me of one of my off-set prints of her, a happy “mistake” turned art. Of course, there is only one of them so it’s a keeper but I definitely need to explore this more. We need more colours here in London, a bit of funky fun will do!
Check back soon for funky Paperclay tutorials.
For now, do sun salutations, sun dances and check out the video below as this track is dope!
So off to Buenos Aires I went, in search for the ultimate adventure, of course involving hammocks, colours in masses, vineyards, a mountain road trip and a monkey. Argentina has it all. There are seven coloured mountains, a grape called Torrontés, wine ice-cream and lemon sorbets topped with champagne to name just a few things I learned along the way. I fell in love and I would go back in a blink.
And as I was living the South American dream, my South American dream, I got commissioned to draw an illustration for Amazed & Confused. And as the blogger Nina followed in my footsteps and also went to Buenos Aires and beyond, I took inspiration from my travels. Here is the result! Click on the image to read Nina’s post.

I’ve always been inspired by music and great performers. Music whilst I paint is a must as it gets the creativity flowing and I love finding the right sound to my film projects. Editing is so much more fun when the music comes in to play.
Painting to music was a common practise during my art school years so finding myself being inspired by Ayah Marar is not surprising, but a blessing, as she has great energy and is a joy to be around.
I’ve had the fortune of experiencing Ayah perform in intimate settings going from excellent to mind blowing and seeing her followers growing by the minute. This lady delivers! When she performs she draws you in with her magnetism. Whatever the space, she’ll fill it and the space is getting bigger.
Next weekend sees her perform at the Isle of Wight Festival, so if you’re lucky enough to have scored a ticket make sure you’ll catch her.
My favorites are still her earlier acoustic as its her voice I love most, still to be release but watch that space.
In the meantime check her out, together with my illustration on
