Converse WALL2WALL manchester
Blue Tit mural I painted in Manchester / Newton St funded by converse : Photographed by Ric Lowe
Recently I was given the opportunity to paint Newton st Manchester, for a international art project that converse was promoting. The Aim was to allow chosen artists from different cities around the world, to create murals and artwork on walls which they would not usually be-able to paint… and Converse was not wanting to interfere with the artists creativity with the artwork which would be painted on the wall.
The blue tit which i painted on newton street was unsurprisingly the biggest mural ever painted in manchester , to my knowledge. And also birdwatchers can honestly say it would be the biggest blue tit they have ever photographed in England ! or anywhere in the world ! A large crew of people was involved in the whole process, including Peter douglass platforms who controlled the lifts as if they was giant arms, keeping well in time with the delicate blasting of spray-can fatcaps!
