Friz @ W8

“The brief for the mural at W8 was very simple, they wanted a local wildflower included, the wild dog-rose and rosehip. The scale of the building was a joy to work with, as was the existing colour palette used for the site.

Working with the client I came up with a design that was sensitive to the existing windows and included a robin as an added feature. I created a simple grid to lay down the basic proportions and from there the entire piece was created using spray paint with the aid of a boom lift for access. The mural took four days to create.”  FRIZ
