The Gang’s (part-time) padrone Nigel Lendon is over in California as we speak, presenting a Rugs of War lecture at UCLA. Ever sartorial (and looking every inch the potentate!!) Nige took time out to spiff up the old dogs before hitting the streets and taking in the art at the university’s Fowler Museum.
The art in question (shown above) is work by El Anatsui Gawu (Ghana/Nigeria): astonishing, huge constructions of industrial waste, says Nige – very big at the Pompidou and Venice this year. Well, we can see why – absolutely stunning.
See ya on Tuesday Nige…and keep away from those gambling dens (Nige just dropped $23 in a poker game – but unfortunately didn’t manage to record the moment for posterity…we really must provide a hidden camera next time around.)
