Paisley and Adams add punch to Haiti appeal
The gloves are off as DUP stalwart Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams prepare to come to blows — but for once it’s not a political knockout.
Instead the veteran politicians are the subject of a painting entitled Rock’em Shock’em, which is being auctioned at a fundraising event for quake-ravaged Haiti.
The striking political image, the creation of Belfast-based artist Andy Brown, depicts the duo deep in concentration as they square up to each other in a game of table top boxing. His work is just one piece of original work by artists from all over Northern Ireland to be featured at a special Valentine’s Day exhibition.
The event, which is called HeARTS4Haiti, kicks off at 6pm on Sunday at Belfast’s Black Box.
