Josefina De Vasconcellos

More sad news, one of the worlds oldest living artists died last month, Josefina De Vasconcellos, she was 100 years old, her work was often associated with sites of conflict and concerned with the prospect of peace, she had sculptures at Hiroshima's peace Park, the Berlin wall, and in Stormont castle as well as all over mainland Britain. One of the new songs we've been playing at all our recent gigs was about her, I heard her speak on a radio 4 documentary last year and was massively inspired, she'd been doing her thing for more than three times as long as i've been alive. We salute her!

I love Josefina de Vasconcellos! Elegance, love, kindness, simplicity, and cheekiness!

She gave so many gifts to the world.
