Survivors are the strongest and most effective voice in the campaign to abolish torture.

  • By Jonathan Banks

On Wednesday 27th of April my solo exhibition of “Portraits of Resilience “, in collaboration with TASSC International, at the Phillips Collection @TheARC in Washington DC launched with a reception and panel discussion artist talk. Over the course of the next week, I will share some of the highlights from the talk starting with

Survivors are the strongest and most effective voice in the campaign to abolish torture.

When I talk to people about the work, their initial reaction is usually the same, as they imagine gritty black and white portraits that show harrowing faces that are worn and downtrodden.

I wanted to capture a series of beautiful and powerful portraits that each person would be proud of.

Of course, if you would like to watch the whole film it is now available on YouTube at

P.S. – Please forgive my delivery … I am a photographer not an orator!

30 years of Nando’s in the UK

  • By Jonathan Banks

At the beginning of April 2022 Nando’s celebrated thirty years since opening its first restaurant in the United Kingdom, in Ealing.

Nando’s has evolved into a 458-restaurant cultural phenomenon, where everyone from musicians to young families, royalty to politicians and everyone in-between likes a “cheeky” Nando’s!

Nando’s has weathered the ever-changing restaurant landscape and soldiered on through the pandemic with plans to open 12 new restaurants in 2022. Part of the brands resilience has been their restaurants individuality whilst still being recognised as a Nando’s.

The new restaurant in Glasgow designed by Fusion dna is a masterclass in the Nando’s brand. Located in the St Enoch’s shopping centre, the restaurant is a complete departure from its surroundings with a canopy of plants, sculpted concrete walls, African fabrics, and wooden ceiling feature. The space has been designed with a variety of seating options from circular booths to single tables that can be arranged as required. The lighting is a mix of decorative pendants, atmospheric feature lights and functional spots. Splashes of colour come from the original art, authentic tiles, and furniture.

A happy belated birthday … still looking and tasting great!

Influx is an award-winning international art gallery based in Notting Hill, London. The team has assembled a “family” of experienced artists, curators, and gallerists. Their objective is to support artists by organising international online and physical art exhibitions and contests.

It is great to be part of the family and I look forward to collaborating with team on future projects.
