#JULIASAYS – Discerning scene musings from the princess of East London!

Back in the land of the living! Those days of having one job are a thing of the past – think I must have about five different things on the go; writer, DJ, model, film extra, artist and even waitressing!

This Thursday 28th, a Group Show launches at M.Goldsteins, a small but perfectly formed shop-come-gallery at 67 Hackney Road from 1st to 14th March. I’ve got a series of paintings in this one, a collaboration with artist and designer NOKI. Also featured are the diverse talents of artists who stretch their unrestrained talents; Louise Gray, John Maybury, Liza Keane, Shiori Takahashi and William Selden.

I’ve been harping on about David Hoyle’s Camp Laff for ages, but now we’re here and to kick off this four show run, David invites special guest Shon Faye live on stage on Thursday 28th at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
