Drako Oho Zahar Zahar


We were deeply saddened at Ourstory recently when we heard of the loss of one of Brighton's characters.

He danced at the Moulin Rouge and the London Palladium, modelled for surrealist artist Salvador Dali's painting 'Crucifixion of Christ', and starred in films by Andy Warhol and Derek Jarman.

With his facial tattoos, piercings and Daliesque moustache he became a very recognisable Brighton eccentric. His memory had become severly damaged and filmmaker Toby Amies was working with him up until his death.
