I collaborated with 7 other Sheffield artists to paint a section of the ‘Graffiti wall’ for Year of Making funded arts festival Hillsfest in Hillsborough, Sheffield. Curated by Anthony Benett and Mila K. The wall was originally designed to be constructed as a spiral, reaching 8m at its highest point. It would therefore be an interactive structure the general public could walk around. Unfortunately, high wind was forecast on the weekend it took place and it was deemed too unsafe to erect. The boards were laid flat on the floor so not quite the same effect was achieved, but it was good to take my 3D flow effect to another level.
Asked by Liam O,Shea of Hope Works, Sheffield to create some visuals for his Year of Making event. I I have done club visuals in the past and in particular have been very interested in music synchronisation, I took this as an opportunity to go back to my 3D modelling & animation software and build similar shapes and patterns I have been using over the last 2 years. Time constraints meant I could not work on this for as long as I wanted / needed to, so the finished product is a little rough around the edges but it was a very interesting process and proven there is potential to explore further.
My piece for City of Colours 2016 I returned to a style I have been wanting to continue exploring since I first started out, I illustrated the Iconic Birmingham bull in an abstract manner and combined with my 3D flow I have painted much more of as a background. Using the colours from the Birmingham Flag.
Commissioned by Ruder Finn, London, to produce a flowing mural for their brand new offices in Finsbury Circus. This was a unique opportunity to use their colour scheme to paint a large scale version of my 3D effect pattern.
Further Giclee print work exploring the 3D effects achieved when combining the tint and shade of certain colours.
Large warehouse doors painted at CADS building, Eyre Street
These were the designs I created which inspired my piece at Upfest 2015. They followed the 10 canvases I created which marked the start of my study into the ‘Wave Flow’ colour series.
Multi colour 3D flow mural created for Upfest 2015
Commissioned by Union St to produce a complementary scenic mural in their main Co-working space.
I was asked back to paint a flowing mural up the stairwell from the ground floor up to the co-working space on the second floor, connecting all spaces together.
