Daniel Leek - Blue Plaque Poet

Dan Leek and Blue Plaque
Welcome to the world of Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.
Today our Sushi Warrior is none other than poet and welsh philosopher Daniel Leek. We know him as a contributor of some note with image and prose in both the Freedbook and Patternotion books last year.

Little did we realise he has become a cult figure in Hampstead, where his blue plaque has been installed. It shouldn't be a surprise of course as his description reads professional breath taker, and his mercurial talents have obviously piqued the interests of this literary enclave.
Will his recent sushi poem engage the minds of the Wimbledon literati in the same way.....

The first thing the noise machine created was a noise for itself.

Dan Leek

We have printed his poem onto this model sushi and will be exhibiting it at the Village Hall Gallery from the 19th-24th March 2014. If you would like to join us, please send us a haiku or poem (less than 80 characters) to me Alban at albanlow@hotmail.com or tweet  @albanart
