Neal Layton created an amazing mural on the wall at Discover Children's Story Centre for the Big Draw 2015. He painted a huge bear called Bartholomew and, with the help of the children who drew and coloured bees and flowers to attach to the wall, a magnificent scene emerged.
On 29th July, Marks and Spencer launched a city wide campaign to encourage local communities to make a real difference. Bright (initiated by Bright Educational) took part in one of the twenty-four projects across London and teamed up with local school, Beyond Autism, to design and create a giant mural to brighten the school playground and raise awareness of the small but thriving organisation. 22 year old Bright Artist Lucy Fleming lead the creative team of volunteers and received a warm welcome from the school’s patrons, actors Prunella Scales and Timothy West.
The mural on the wall is on the outside of the brewery Twisted Barrel Ale. It's a new brewery which has just opened up in Coventry. The imagery on the wall was drawn from an open brief- they wanted a representation of Coventry. Stewart chose to use the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom to depict for the wall painting.
Prior to the bombing during the blitz, Coventry was a real pretty city with a vast amount of Tudor buildings. After the war the council pulled what was left down with a view of rebuilding it and making it a modern town - but it was never finished. As a reference to this Stewart have drawn lots of tudor style buildings based on the remaining ones in Coventry.
The labels design was once again an open brief, though Stewart needed to have connections with Coventry.
On the label design you will see the Tudor buildings, Coventry's three spires, doves (as a reference to Coventry being a city of peace and reconciliation). I drew a lad and a lass in celebration of the tag line 'more folk than punk' from the brewery.

Flavio Melchiorre (A.K.A IDRO51) has transformed another wall with his iconic ‘hypnotic art’. The wall in Lentella, Italy measures a whopping 6x2.5 metres and was created as part of the NatureArte Festival which celebrates outdoor painting and sculptures.
Flavio’s work, named ‘Listen Your Nature’ has since been noticed by many street art websites, including Global Street Art.
The talented Dourone spends seventeen days creating three fabulous murals at Gare du Nord in Paris.
As part of an art residency via Quai 36, the murals illustrate one story which is represented in three stages; the first presents the idea, the second is the realisation of not being alone and the third is about enjoyment. Gare du Nord is one of the busiest stations in Europe and will guarantee Dourone's work will be seen and loved by a large volume of people.
