The Mural Project (blog part 2 of 2)

This is the second part of the blog, to view the first part go to my website www.bokraworld.com Photo Credit: Holly Louise Smith Photography The theme which emerged from meeting with the public was ‘community’. Everyone expressed fondest memories when talking of friends and family or adventures. I wanted to depict this in the painting using hapes that intertwine, connecting […]

The Mural Project (blog part 1 of 2)

The Mural Project 1 (TMP1) was part of Skipton Art Series, an event which brings artists together to collaborate whilst engaging with the community. TMP1 was held at Parade Gardens, involving myself, Abi Overland and Will Bertram. We each had a section of wall to paint on the corner of Savile and Cannon Street. We used our own techniques to engage […]

Mural for Rio Hair & Beauty (with video)

Back in November 2016, I began painting a mural for Rio Hair & Beauty. I spent the following 3 weeks working evenings, over-night and Sunday’s, as it was not viable to paint during salon opening times. Going back to the beginning of this commission, I must mention the 6ft mood-board made by the Rio staff, collated from the magazines in the […]

SUPREME L.A

Working closely with the family to devise a design for this bedroom wall began with a list of the boys current interests. Piecing together words and names such as Football, Supreme, LA, Graffiti, Street Art, OBEY and other brands, an environment was built with all the interests featured. Using only spray paint, a large amount of information had to […]

In the Mix

The proposed design, which represents a mix of the Bohemias cocktail ingredients. My aim was to bring this dark, forgotten corner to life using colour, […]

Peas & Glove Permanent Ollyday

The second Permanent Ollyday, raising funds for Olly Newman. There was a real sense of community in the build up to the event, with everyone giving time, prizes, materials and lots of love. MOLE, KUMO and myslef painted surrounds for the stage, with wood supplied by KH carpentry. A mini ramp was built a few […]

New York, New York

I totally understand why you have to say it twice now, it’s just an incredible city, only said once is not enough! Visiting New York was not only inspirational, but also a surreal experience. One of my highlights was painting the New York skyline onto a ‘drop off’ second hand deck for KCDC Skateshop, based […]
