Uri Geller

 Me and Uri!  

This one took around 4 weeks on and off. Uri sent me some photographs from his collection and I created this painting as I loved the intensity of his eyes and the bending spoon. Iconic. 

The finished painting is 30 x 30″. Uri will counter-sign this original painting when he’s next back in the UK and we’ll auction it for his Foundation. 

As a magician myself, Uri has long been the subject of controversary in the magic community. I think he’s a brilliant showman and superb performer. I painted the purple aura around the spoon and Uri to suggest psychic energy.

Really pleased with this painting and look forward to meeting Uri and having his signature alongside mine. I wonder if the pen will bend when he signs it?
