Summer repaint back at Pergola Paddington, back working with my brother Edd!
Work in progress producing a feature wall mural for Rekorderlig bar inside Underbelly Festival, Southbank. The fade background I achieved with spray paint, somthing Im still getting to grips with - but pretty chuffed how this turned out. Fruit and leaves in Emulsion paint and rocks are photogrpahic paste up.
Last week I headed south coast to do another couple of walls in Brighton. The design is based on the Ancona region of Sirolo. A mix of collaged photographic elements - cathedral, roman bust, Ancona duck… with painterly sections. Im getting to grips with using spray paint for fades, which gives an added dreamlike quality.
Heres some work-in-progress pics from this week painting on Clerkenwell Road for an illustration Commissioned by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Great to work for such an iconic brand on there thirty year celebration campaign featuring three landscapes in the UK favoured by the Camper van customers. I was joined by my brother Edd Hicks and other top professionals from Global Street Arts, great to improve from spray paint skills and work on the biggest wall to date!
Leaf fill !
Trying out the traditional method of transferring guidelines for sign writing today. You run the wheel round the outside of your letters or drawing, then using a pounce pad, you use a fine powder to push through the holes leaving you a dotted line to trace your letters! ...in theory :) will let you know how i get on
Check out AS Handover either online or at there Dalston store, for all your sign writing equipment!
