A Rare Self Portrait

25 Feb


I don’t often draw myself, mainly because I don’t like looking at myself; I rarely wear make up so I don’t spend much time looking in mirrors; I have always hated having my photo taken so there are no photos of me around the house. This is a rare self-portrait that I did as part of a much larger piece of ephemeral drawing back in Autumn 2015 when my fellow artist Melanie Ezra and I took over a semi-derelict shop in Swansea’s High Street and opened it up to other artists to see what happened – we called it ‘The Bagpuss Window’. I’m going to post some of the videos made of ‘The Bagpuss Window’ by Melvyn Williams over the next few blogs because I want to show some of the fab artists who came along and did art …….


Here’s the first one featuring musicians David Pitt and Shey Edlington ……..



I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to see more, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    The Bagpuss Window sounds like such a wonderful project Rosie, i’d love to have the opportunity to do something like that on the high street, not in a traditional gallery space, and just see what happened. Beautiful, rich rewarding drawing too

      Thanks Phil. I was cheeky and went to the local housing association and asked if they had any buildings earmarked for demolition 😀

        Good idea Rosie, that proactive! I’ve seen it done in Berlin where there’s more empty property but not so much here, it looked like. A great experience

        It was fantastic. I will post more videos. There’s loads of empty property in our city centre, looks awful but there are loads of artists moving in. It’s the most thriving art scene in Wales.
