In 1926 shoemaker Ab Solomons drew a doodle on the wage-packet he gave to his wife Celie. Throughout their marriage, right up until 1982, Ab developed his art, drawing a wage-packet image every week for Celie. These pictures chronicle Ab and Celie’s family life, through ups and downs, with great wit and warmth and with a blistering honesty.
Danny Braverman’s critically-acclaimed, award-winning solo show tells the funny and moving story of how he discovered the lost art of his Great-uncle Ab. Wot? No Fish!! is an extraordinary story about love and art, history and fish balls.
Ab and Celie went on a journey along a road that went uphill both ways – but it was a journey they took together.
