Words in Nature...Glaciers of ice.

Its now officially sub-zero in the UK! Which can only mean kicking off the winter outdoor season of painting with a beauty. The theme of this is "Glaciers of ice", a classic rap track by Raekwon the chef from Wu-Tang Clan, this was the only thing going through my head as I rushed to finish before the wind picked up.
Hopefully it will snow soon as I really want to get out and beat last years painting record of -5 when the can actually stuck to my hand.

Hooray for winter!

Something is looking at you

more winter blues

I love Brixton Market!

Brixton Village is an indoor market located in the heart of Brixton.
I was approached to paint out an empty store as part of a project to inject new ideas and energy into the market.

What makes Brixton stand out from a lot of indoor markets is its diversity of food stores and some great eateries. I have recently learnt that there are 3 Colombian restaurants in there which means that I may as well not have a kitchen at home!

For the store painting I pulled in Tizer and Bonzai to add to the flavour. We were painting what used to be a Rastafari restaurant.
The project was organised by Spacemakers agency and thanks to Katrina for hooking it up. It was short notice, 2 days, but that's how I roll.
Hope you enjoy the results:
