Collaboration with Hugh Mendes


Hugh Mendes has made a name for himself making paintings based on newspaper obituaries.
In Jan 2015 two Police officers Ahmed Merabet, 42, and Franck Brinsolaro, 47, were shot dead by Siad and Cherif Kouachi, during their attack on the offices of French satirical magazineCharlie Hebdo. I asked Hugh to help me make a painting of Ahmed whose death moved me.
