My Life is messed up!

This is my contribution to Dean's Sketchbook, he said we could paint anything and the only thing that came to my mind was homeless people. I see so many in London everyday. This particular guy is always situated around Barclay's Bank on King's Road in Chelsea.
I saw him take this pose and I couldn't resist a quick snap with the handy I-phone.

I have heard so many stories about homeless people and I know the agony and pain of their downward spiral. I tried to really get into this piece by writing some words this man would say. It's an intense piece and means a lot too me, I hope it means a lot to you-Dean!

Sorry for the lateness. I have been so busy but I just didn't want to rush up the piece and send it off.


  1. It surely does mean a lot to me, Adebanji! This painting is so filled with passion. I love your style.

    Don't worry about being late...this is certainly worth the wait! Can't wait to have it in my hot little hands!

  2. I am happy you understand Dean! I am also happy you really like too!

  3. As I see these paintings, it makes me sad I will not get to see this one in person. This one immediately expressed the raw emotion you have painted so beautifully; outstanding, Banji!!

  4. Awesome painting Adebanji. A very sensitive and beautifully executed piece.
