Artwork description:

London. Summertime. The great british weather. 
It rained everyday that summer
That day I had enough and felt like, you know what? I will go and sit in my garden with my bikini on, under the rain and pretend its summer. If only I had a yellow balloon handy to pretend it is the sun.
That day sparked this whole series on Optimism and relentless enthusiasm. It became a pretext to speak about eternal optimism, not giving in to circumstances but finding a way out, with a smile.
It is a candid, childlike, spontaneous endeavour, an urban fairytale with a smile and a balloon. For the next couple of years, I carried yellow balloons with me, and when the setting felt right, the vision came, I would take the picture, from Paternoster in South Africa to Marrakech in Morocco, to Brentwood Los Angeles in the USA, to Forest hill, South London in England.

This particular was in South Africa near Paternoster.
