THE LONG WALK TO JUSTICE
THE LONG WALK TO JUSTICE

The title says it all … it was inspired by the Make Poverty History campaign, the long walk to justice, by Live 8. Live 8, Edinburgh, which Midge Ure was heavily involved in, played a large part in the conception of this painting. I actually 'saw' the painting whilst deeply into the song ‘One Small Day’ by Ultravox a day or so after that historic event. I always paint to music and this one was painted to Ultravox’s Lament album. Midge’s face appearing in Africa is there as a symbolic representation of our Voice. The silhouette of the man on the mountain top is of another very special soul who cared passionately about changing this world for the better.

Medium: watercolours & ink

Size mounted 42cm x 42cm
