Live Demonstration with W&N Pigment Marker Collection

IMG_0587i IMG_0608iIMG_2862I was lucky enough to be selected to use the new Winsor & Newton Pigment Marker collection before being released in stores globally.

I was invited to do a live demonstration with the markers for the public at the Cowling & Wilcox store here in London. It was fun and great interacting with people and creating with dope art with the locals. The pens are great but you have to use their marker pads to get the full pigment experience, it is even blend-able with your fingers as well as using their signature colourless blender marker. This was my first time using markers (ever!) as medium and I must say they are pretty awesome to use for beginners to pros.

The Energy Series

a ‘Wi-Fi’


‘Natural Mystic’


‘The Heart Charka’


I had the pleasure of showcasing my new painting series ‘The Energy Series’ At the Pancakes and Booze art show. It was an awesome turnout with over 700 art lovers, with free pancakes and live art. I filmed some highlights in between showcasing my series.

The Energy Series

When I was traveling, a book was placed on my path. ‘The Celestine Prophecy’ by James Redfield, this book gave me many different visions as I turned the pages. ‘The Energy Series’ is my visual book review. A writer maybe eager to write a review after reading a book with some many hidden gems, but as an artist I was inclined to paint with in immediate effect. I saw each painting in my mind and was willing to share my visions with you.

‘The Celestine Prophecy’ talks about energy and how we as humans do not see or have an awareness of energy and the power of energy.

In my personal encounters I have connected with people energetically, through our minds, hearts and spiritually. Each painting is a reflection of what I envisioned in that moment when connecting with a person. Each brush stroke represents a frequency, the waves, swirls and shapes flows into a rhythmic awareness. The colour choices were strategically placed based on my emotions (the inner layer) and the connection (the outer layer). The reds, oranges, purples, yellows represent courage, happiness, creativity and wisdom. The greens and blues represent balance and knowledge. Each painting is ordered on how I felt when connecting with a person, starting with the heart, to the brain, to a spiritual touch.

My short-documentary ‘Reggae. Culture. Vibes.’ was selected to be screened in the IF film club at the members only, The Hospital Club. Along with other film markers showcasing their work.

Black, British and Beautiful Launch

bbbcalendarbbbcalendar2 bbbcalendar22

I was approached to work on this amazing project with ‘Black British and Beautiful’ to design their calendar celebrating Black British history and achievements. I attended the calendar launch held at Wac Arts this past Thursday.

“We seek to build platforms that recognize and commemorate the pioneers, role models, influential individuals and firsts from our Black British history.

We will launch this project and vision creatively with a calendar. Using black British children to depict 12+ idols and role models that have made an impact on culture, politics, music and literature in the last 50 years.

This is simply the beginning of something that can grow organically and with the support of the community and more importantly, young people. The aim of this is not solely to acknowledge and recognize all of these wonderful people but to involve, educate and share with our children.

We want young people involved in the process, choosing who inspires them and taking pride in their history.

The hope is that this project could grow into educational and empowerment workshops for all. That young people participate in photo-shoot feeling beautiful and liberated.

I would like to specially thank all of the creative individuals involved but particularly those young people that participated in bringing this project to life.” – Camille Curtis
