On January 28th 2001, two great Australian bands, GANGgajang and Yothu Yindi had just flown into Brazil from Johanessberg, South Africa. The lights of Sao Paulo from the air just seemed endless, it's such a huge city. I spent the next day at The Ginza Hotel, Rua Galvao Bueno, 700 Liberdade, Sao Paulo, painting "Lights Of Sao Paulo" in the blue/green colour I now knew I would use for what would become the "Oceans" series.
