What’s the hurry?

Would you make an hour 45 minutes long instead of 60? Think of how much more you could do.

The Depechist answer is not to adjust the clock but to work faster.

Barry Fantoni, a friend from my Camberwell days, has created the DEPECHE MOVEMENT and written the manifest too. After all, iconoclastic movements must have a manifesto.

On Saturday 15 September 2012 we were given a four-page spread in the Independent magazine. You’ll find quite a few examples of our Depeche pieces in the article. If you can’t get hold of the newspaper, you can access the article on line. You’ll find some images in their gallery link below the photo of Barry. Click here for the article

Read the article and you’ll see that being a Depechist requires that we make our art within a time limit. The time is based on the size of the paper. If the paper is 15 inches long, the time limit is 15 minutes.

At this very moment we are hurrying ahead with the plans for a Depeche exhibition. There may be a whole string of exhibitions and not in places you would expect. I’ll keep you posted so lookout for news. Meanwhile here are a few examples of my Depeche paintings.

DRAWING NOW. The Linchpin Gallery, Eastbourne.

I’ve been invited to show three pieces in the Drawing Now exhibition at a new and exciting gallery on England’s south coast. The exhibition runs from 6th until 26th October. Do come and take a look. Spend a day by the seaside in beautiful East Sussex. You can get to Eastbourne from London Victoria in under an hour.

The Linchpin Gallery address is Willowfield Studios, 67A Willowfield Road, Eastbourne, BN22 8AP Tel: 01323 720638 email linchpingallery@aol.com

Irene Runayker, another old chum from my days at art school, the founder, owner and director of the Linchpin, will tell you how to find the gallery and the hours of opening.

Open Studio

We are opening our studios at Phipps Bridge as part of the Merton Arts Trail. www.mertonartstrail.org.uk on two weekends. 22nd and 23rd September and 29th and 30th September. On both weekends the studios will be open from noon until 6pm. Please note on 22nd I will not be at the studio after 4pm but all the other artists will. I will be at the studio until 6pm on the other days.
Please come and have a cup of tea with me and watch me making prints.


Ask me about commissioning a portrait, or a painting or a drawing of something else and I’ll explain how I go about it.

You can contact me by telephone +44 (0) 7752 368906 or by email alaarons@gmail.com or in person.

If you want the portrait to be a surprise gift, I can, if necessary, work from photographs.

Studio Visits

If you would like to visit my studio at any time please call me. 07752 368906 or contact me by email alaarons@gmail.com. There is absolutely no commitment. I really do enjoy taking a break to talk to interested people over a cup of tea or something stronger.
