What’s on your wall? – Angry Blue

  • “I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.” ― Ray Bradbury


    Art has always been vital to me. From the moment I could pick up a pencil, I have been drawing. At school I used to create pen and ink drawings of the Manchester City players and sell them to all my City fan friends for 50p a time which kept me in sweets. (My mates couldn’t get enough of my Kazimierz Deyna.)

    I love to create, but I also love to be inspired by the creativity of others.

    What about you?

    What hangs on your wall?

    What inspires you?

    What hangs on my wall is not just decorative, it is a statement of my personality and of my passions.

    When I find an artist whose work inspires me, whose passion speaks to mine and fires me up, I feel a compulsion to own his or her work. To have their art on my wall, alive and kicking up a passionate storm in my life.

    One of the pieces of art I own (or perhaps owns me) which hangs on my wall and speaks to me of inspiration is a piece titled – ‘Sleep is Wrong’ by Angry Blue.



    SleepIsWrongYes, there are plastic corner-protectors on the frame. I’d like to say it was due to an artistic statement, but it’s not. I thought Jennifer was going to remove them, she thought I was going to remove them… we’re both still waiting for the other to do it. It has now become a ‘game of chicken’ between us which adds to the impact and inspiration of the piece itself.



    I hate sleep. It feels like a waste of time even though I know I can’t live without it and that is perhaps the most galling thing about it. I am forced to do something I don’t want to do and, for a control freak (no, honestly, I am), that is the worst thing you can do. I am generous (I think) and always try to go the extra mile in my work and in my personal life, but if you demand I do something, well, then I simply won’t do it. Not until I decide to do it anyway because, then it is my choice.

    Angry Blue aka Justin Kamerer is a friend of mine on Facebook and a damned fine illustrator whose work sells-out quickly. If you can get hold of one of his artworks before it vanishes you won’t regret it. His prices are incredibly reasonable for such an amazing talent, he ships to the UK, and most importantly, he speaks my language – No, not English, my visual language.

    You can check him and his wonderful work out at his website – AngryBlue

    He is very friendly and won’t bite.

    So, what hangs on your wall and what does it mean to you?

    1. I am a photographer and the what I have on my wall is picture of all types. Photography is way that we can take a step back and to look at thing in a new way. I look at the world and I see the great gift of creation and that God mad everything for us and that he has given to us. I believe that there such wonder and beauty in this world but people don’t take the time to stop and look around and see that God is there in everything around them.

      how have see God in the art that its around you?


      • I agree, photography is a great way to get a different perspective as the camera captures a moment, and that allows us to take in a moment which otherwise would have passed in the blink of an eye. The longer we look at an image, the more we see and can observe.

        The world is a fascinating place, a feast for the eyes, mind and soul.
