Assorted 8 pictures

In this folder there are photos from both: 1) Shrewsbury Dubclub - This was a reggae and dub night that we we ran in Shrewsbury from 2003 - 2007, where we soundsystems such as Channel One, Jah Shaka, AbaShanti-I, Jah Tubbys, Iration Steppas and many others played roots music to nice up the dance alongside my artwork. This was the early days of OlasArt, where I was realising how I could produce artwork that would be seen in public in other ways than graffiti. 2) Influences from India - Artwork that was inspired by travelling in India in 2004, including Tamil Kollams and a Saddhu portrait.

I think everyone should be considered part of this family...even if they are missing one or more of these! These three represent a unity that crosses superficial differences such as language etc. If everyone had their feet out people might feel more similar to each other. For dubclub Uv paint 2007
