WHEN ITS RAINING LOOK FOR STARS
In December I was brought in to work on a project with Charlie Dark, called Words on Walls, which was commissioned by Newham Council and the Discover Centre, Stratford. The aim was to work with “The Mix” who are a local LGBGT youth group in Plaistow, to provide a space to convey a phrase that inspired them and to enable them to learn the basics of mural design and painting their design.
We gathered for a session to capture ideas, then met at the wall on a cold and rainy December afternoon, to get their plan painted. Big thanks to everyone that made this happen.. It was great to meet such a positive and confident group, and to work together to brighten up Barbers Alley.
C21 Project – Cardiff University
Last week saw my first commission ‘unveiling’ at Cardiff University Hospital Wales, for the launch of their C21 Project. The piece is to commemorate the new curriculum for medical students in Cardiff and a new building which provides high tech research facilities to its students. I was very pleased to attend the event, which was opened by Professor John Bligh, Dean of Medicine..
Big thanks to Cardiff M.A.D.E Gallery for their support.
