This painted construction depicts a shop on Portobello Road, Notting Hill. I live close to this area which is known for its Spanish residents, many of whom are historically connected to those fleeing Spain during the Civil War. The abstracted bull is a motif taken from the shop itself and emphasises the Spanish culture. It is also homage to Picasso. The colours again emphasise those of Spain. I have made use of every facet of the work, adding signage to some of these planes. I also wanted to depict an alternative image of my country, one that defies the narrow concept of what it is to be English.
