Mural Work – ‘Birds’

I was asked to paint some birds on the wall of a new Zizzi restaurant in Cardiff, Wales. Thought i’d change it up a bit and re-visit a graphical style I used for a mural I completed in Kenilworth a while back. It was good fun.








And finally, as it’s one of our favourite albums..

2012 – ‘Yousif’
Buenos Aires, Argentina


“I took a trip to Argentina to be with my wife’s family to spread my father in law’s ashes near the Sierra de la Ventana (one of his favorite places). He was an impressive man who loved culture. I enjoyed the way he looked at the world and the way he transmitted to those around him wisdom, simplicity and hope with his gaze. This is a new direction of permanent murals that I’ll be doing more of in the near future.”
– Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada

2012 – ‘Manolo’
Manama, Bahrain.


“I went to the city of Manama in Bahrain to make a mural as part of the Alwan 338 festival put together by the Al Riwaq Art Space. Knowing the current situation there, I was a little apprehensive but a good friend working with the gallery explained the special nature of what the Al Riwaq Art Space was doing. I met some truly extraordinary people who believe in the role of contemporary art in their country’s future. Against all odds they strive to change the barren artistic landscape that exists in Bahrain today. There are so many layers to the place. There is a huge class division, exotic cars, colossal images of the king everywhere, boundless hospitality, arrests, the smell of tear gas every weekend, road blocks, women who can drive and are free to dress as they wish, a graffiti war between dissidents and the police, an American naval base since 1947, Fuddruckers, Sizzlers, a clamp down on dissident areas, the legal sale of alcoholic beverages, a rich cultural history…
It is easy to resort to the didactic or aesthetically pleasing image, but it is much more difficult to create poetic and emotionaly charged art that can reach you at different levels. There are few Bahraini artists creating profound work about this multilayered place and time. Al Riwaq Art Space is trying to change that and I have nothing but admiration for their efforts. My Identity Series murals fade away with the wind and rain. I decided to create a mural of a traditional Bahraini fisherman, one of a few hundred that are left.”

A 20ftx50t mural hanging in Minneapolis MN, USA. It depicts a historical overview of workers cooperatives.

Designed By Luther Lyons Hill IV
Produced by Studio 253 Finishes and Benjamin Bayne

I love this piece, I think the colour palette really works well and executed in a brilliant style; a nice contemporary, illustrative twist on the classic workers mural.

Love Letter

Steve ‘Espo’ Powers recent Love Letter project saw him painting giant slogan, ad-like murals on surfaces based around the west Philadelphia railway from 47th to 63rd.

The idea involved artists from across the US with the aim being 50 seperate murals. The sentiments; a fictional dialogue between a boy and his girlfriend.

How inspirational/uplifting would seeing this be compared to the usual blur of greys and hideous over-advertising?

For more pictures and words check out the interview with him over on the excellent Fecal Face here.
