Madwatch: Self Portrait with Koala Bear

Madwatch self-portrait-with-koala-bear
This is me in England, a country I call home. I have mostly lived in post industrial places and have frequently walked hours of streets displaying identical houses, each slightly personalised with touches ranging from pictures of the duchess of Cambridge to objects of a questionable taste.

The koala bear is my version of Katharine Hepburn’s monkey (at the start of her career, she used to walk around the streets of Hollywood with a monkey to get noticed). The koala seems like an anomaly here, and so am I.

    • Frida Kahlo and her self portraits are a massive inspiration obviously, her sense of colour and the deep meaning of each painting is absolutely mind boggling.
