Introduction by Baroness Barbara Young CEO of Diabetes UK Diabetes UK is proud to be working in partnership with Omar Hassan and ContiniArtUK. As a person with type 1 diabetes, Omar’s art provides the viewer with a unique insight into a life of constant awareness and medication. We are delighted to be able to work with such an inspiring young artist. Omar is proof that people with diabetes can live full and healthy lives. Omar’s #Injections series shows just how much Omar’s life has been shaped by his daily insulin injections; something many people with diabetes will have a direct connection with. His determined and positive personality shines through in every piece, creating a very striking collection. Diabetes UK is the leading diabetes charity in the UK – caring for, connecting with and campaigning on behalf of the 3.8 million people with the condition in the United Kingdom. For those with diabetes, eye sight loss, amputation and increased rates of heart disease are all daily concerns. Although there is no cure for diabetes, in the past year we have invested £6.5million into 120 various research projects. Over the years our research grants have helped to fund projects which have changed the landscape of daily life for people with diabetes. Our funding supported the projects which developed the world’s first insulin pen and digital blood glucose monitors. These developments are now helping people with diabetes to stay healthy. With the support of amazing individuals and companies like Omar and ContiniArtUK, we will continue to help those with diabetes to live full and long lives. Omar and ContiniArtUK are working together with Diabetes UK to raise the all-important awareness and funds we need to be able to continue our work. As a charity, we rely on the incredible generosity of our supporters. We are extremely grateful to those who help support our work. Raising awareness of diabetes is key in the battle to helping people to recognise and manage their condition. It is estimated that there are currently over 680,000 people in the UK with undiagnosed diabetes. A lot of our work is in education and increasing awareness of the symptoms and complications of diabetes. We are committed to educating and supporting people with diabetes and their families through every step of their journey. I am very much looking forward to being able to experience the creation of one of Omar’s piece’s in his live artistic performance on 23 April. He has generously agreed to auction off this one of a kind artwork in aid of Diabetes UK . Please do support Omar and our work by investing in this opportunity to own a completely unique piece. On behalf of Diabetes UK, I would like to thank Omar and ContiniArtUK for their incredible generosity. We are truly privileged to be able to call them our supporters.

Love is a Fight A fictional response to the work of Omar Hassan* by Cedar Lewisohn I always wanted to be an artist. I always wanted to communicate something I could never put into words. All my sadness. All my love. Sometimes I feel so hollow. I enjoy the stupidity of creativity. The absurdity of recording these moments of joy and fear. Every step of the way, people, the world,tries to stop you. The world can crush and defeat you.Or you can fight back.I went through some tragic situations that no fourteen year-old boy should have to experience. Raised in a tough neighborhood on the outskirts of Milan, I lost loved ones and peers. Witnessing the death of my best friend while painting graffiti marked me tragically. So I started going to the gym to box. For me, boxing is the noblest art. Boxing became my life and a creative output. I have always had to fight, to hustle.Through boxing I had to learn to breathe. For every offensive punch, the oxygen has to come fast into your lungs. Inhale quickly and your body tightens. So when someone punches you, the shock absorbs. You learn to live with the pain. You learn to live with the bruises. Breathe from the diaphragm, close your mouth and exhale through the nose. Your heart knows what to do. Your lungs know what to do. To make good art is also a fight. It’s a romantic cliché, but it’s true. Truth is born of argument. I was training regularly now. My body toned. Muscles taut. I was eating right and in my weight category I was good, very good. I had no fear in the ring. I have no fear in the studio. Boxing is about intelligence, as much as it is about instinct and practice. Move your feet in the right patterns. Dance around the canvas. You have to not only predict your opponent’s next move, but encourage it. You are alone in the ring. You are taking the hits and trying to give them back. There are pauses, the minute of rest between the rounds. You have to stand up when you fall. If you are knocked to the groundyou have to find the energy and the desire within yourself to get up and carry on fighting, until the last round when you either win or lose. Non-fighters always want to know, how do you live with the pain? How do you deal with being punched over and over? There is no simple answer to this. The feeling of being punched is indescribable. Being punched in the face or head, more so. When I would fight, I was in a sort of agonistic trance, I didn’t feel the pain until later. I was numb. My eyes would often stay open while I was being punched in the face. I experienced it all. Time slows down and the moment of connection can feel like a lifetime, but I had tostart fighting again a split second later. Then there are the stronger fists, the heavy hitters. These blows stay with you for years. You have a sense of being inside your body and outside of it at the same time, your eyes close and for a few seconds there is a void. It’s like getting run over by a truck. But you recover and you’re back to fighting, taking and giving more punches. The other side is landing a good right hook, or a quick succession of body jabs. Then it was the high gothic sculpture of Western Europe that flashed past my eyes. The solemnity and unquestioning belief of the crusaders, the inquisitionist’s. Swords and crucifixes. Horror-show tortures scenes carved in stone. These things take me out of myself. Time somehow makes the violence of the past more acceptable. But as a boxer, violence was my day job. After a fight, when the blood was still fresh on my gloves, and my own face was battered and bruised, eyes swollen, lip busted, people would often ask: “How do you find something so horrific, so beautiful...?” This maybe comes down to what your idea of beauty is. Where do you find beauty and what makes you think something is beautiful in the first place? Art and boxing seem to be fairly happy bedfellows. This goes double, when it comes to the business side of art. The trading, the money, the glamour and the win or lose mentality. Think about Jean-Michel Basquiat portraits of boxers. The image of the boxer is that of the isolated individual, literally using their body as a means of survival. In boxing there are no ties, no extra time, everything is decided in those minutes, full of sweat, sometimes blood, violent punches, insults and applause, falls and ascents,

strategies and impulses. One difference between art and boxing however is that in art, nobody can ever be certain who the winner is. The great art of today may be seen as junk two hundred years from now. So when I make art, I make it for now and also for the future. Boxing helped my work in many ways. It gave me discipline, self assurance and importantly, the confidence to fail. When I fail, I get back up and try again. I try to fail better. I’ve always been scared of dying. I always maybe knew in my heart that boxing would one day be taken away from me. And so it was. During the rigorous and strict medical examinations before a big international tournament in which I was supposed to participate, my illness was discovered and I was disqualified. They told me I was unfit to fight. So I was marked as not eligible to practice in the sport that had saved me, to whom I had given so much and that had given so much back in return. My dreams, my aspirations, my outlet, the years of hard training in the gym, the beatings taken and given, all blocked by a red stamp from the sports bureaucracy. Being diabetic constitutes as an “aggravated risk” to the already normal risks involved in an extreme sport such as boxing. Every punch I received lowered my blood pressure and I have low blood sugar, so I always had to be stronger and aware of the risk. Now I can no longer box professionally I focus on the art that I make in the studio. The art that goes into galleries. Creativity is now my creative outlet. The patterns of my hands when I paint, the importance of artist breath, the ideaof spectacle. Survival. I’ve taken these things from the ring into the studio. Making art now is a mythological dance. Colour and form are the tools of my iconoclasm. Abstract patterns and fragments from the world around me. The frames of my work are the work, in the same way the rope of the boxing ring is part of the ring. I’m still in ore of the masters from history. Both the history of art and the history of boxing. In art history my heroes are Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Jackson Pollock. These are artists who did not distinguish between what they made in the studio and the life they lived outside of it. They played with materiality, they stripped the world back to its elements. In the history of boxing, Sugar Ray Robinson is my all time boxing hero. It was the grace and elegance with which he moved that attracts me to him. The story of Sugar Ray’s fight with Jimmy Doyle has also haunted me for years. On Saturday 21st of June 1947, Sugar Ray Robinson had a dream, nightmare, premonition, whatever you want to call it, that he would fight and kill the boxer Jimmy Doyle. Robinson and Doyle were due to fight on the 25th in Cleveland. After the dream however, Sugar Ray tried to have the fight cancelled. There was big money at stake, and the promoters were keen for the fight to go ahead. They called a priest to reassure Robinson that all would be fine and the fight went ahead as planned.In the 8th round Robinson knocked Doyle out and won the bout with a TKO. Doyle however, never got up. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a blood clot in the brain and later died of a cerebral hemorrhage. I don’t remember when I first heard that story, everyone in boxing knows it, but it stays with me. No matter how strange or unusual they seem, I never ignore my dreams. Maybe the last thing I want to say, and I know it might sound crazy, but the thing which connects boxing and art for me, in the end is love. You make art to be loved, and believe it or not, when you box, you do it also to be loved. Cedar Lewisohn 2015 *This text is fiction. It uses elements from the life and art of Omar Hassan as inspiration but should not be read as fact.

Introduction by Dr. Diego Giolitti and Ulia Rabko Omar Hassan was born in 1987 in Milan, Italy, to an Italian mother and an Egyptian father. His best friend, a prolific graffiti artist, encouraged a 15-year-old Omar to join him in experimenting on the walls of his native city. Hassan later witnessed his best friend fall to his death in one of Milan’s underground tunnels. The tragedy proved a formative event for Hassan. The artist felt compelled to explore various paths, experimenting with a significant talent for boxing and fearless creative risks. However, Hassan was forced to abandon his love of boxing and the lure of competitive sport when a diagnosis of diabetes was discovered disqualifying him from professional boxing on the grounds of health and safety. Being unable to fully explore this passion, Hassan returned to his other love; investing all his energy into his artistic practice.

As a monument to this important time in his life, the exhibition includes ten paintings produced through the artist’s new boxing-inspired technique; a series called Breaking Through. The creation of these paintings involved Hassan dipping his boxing gloves into an array of colourful paint pots and punching onto large white canvases, in a very physical display of strength, anger and cathartic energy. The Breaking Through series is a beautifully pure and raw insight into how the artist channels his energy and portrays his story into a work of art: the street and fine artist, the boxer and the young man living with diabetes.

Also part of the exhibition is the #Injections series, a direct reference to Hassan’s daily insulin shots. These points of light represent the artist’s positive outlook in bursts of bright colour on canvas. There is great joy in Omar Hassan’s creations, glorious proof of his determination to “break through” the struggles of life.

The spray-canned ‘dots’ reflect the immediacy of street art culture, where speed, with visual impact, is so important. The colourful canvases are framed in a style that is evocative of 16th and 18th century old masters; Hassan changes the function of the frames by painting over them, creating a perfect fusion that transcends both fine art and street art in the process. Hassan continually references his formal education at the Academy of Arts of Brera. A fine example of this is Hassan’s Venere al Quadro (2011). The piece involves a smaller version of a Venus de Milo statue, covered in his signature spray-painted dots, displayed just in front of a canvas sprayed with the same colours. The result is an optical illusion; with the three-dimensional sculpture vanishing into the canvas. To Omar Hassan, art is the only true mark a person can leave on the world. It is something that, whilst open to different interpretations and viewpoints, has come directly from a person’s will and desire to express and communicate. It would be fair to say that this young artist, with his varied and engaging art practice, has already made a considerable impression at an early stage in his career, and it is with nothing but great anticipation that we wait to see where such a creative drive will take him next.
