Chance Street project
CELEBRATING THE END OF LOCKDOWN
I really think art should be part of people’s lives every day and even more so during challenging times.
Since lockdown, and with all the tourists gone, the walls of Shoreditch have been left desperately blank.
Every wall in Shoreditch was painted black and it all looked very gloomy and sad.
I was walking down Chance Street and I thought, “Why should we wait for the next big ad to be released to see those walls full of life and colours again?”
For this project, I really wanted to bring a message of hope and positivity, in order to bring back some life to the area.
When seeing my colourful, dreamlike flowers up on this wall, I want passers-by to smile and be cheerful.
It was so good to be able to paint such a huge wall again after 4 months of lockdown, even though I was still painting outlaw-style here and there.
The wall, which is around 24ft high and 62ft long – representing a 426 square ft surface in total.
So huge thanks to Montana Cans for your support.
Thanks to Lee from Global Street Art, who asked to be granted the right to paint this specific wall, also thanks to my soulmate Frankie., Reves and Not Banksy Forum
for their help.
A special thanks to Louis Thornton
for the video and for following me during these 3 days.
