This Ain’t Really A Life
Oil on canvas
Painted in memory of Gil Scott-Heron.
In March 2010 Bhatt travelled to New York to see Gil Scott-Heron perform at the Bluenote where he met Glen ‘Astro’ Turner (a member of Gil’s band) who provided him with the invaluable opportunity to draw and paint Gil and his band during their UK concerts in 2010.
