Whale Spotting on Coogee Beach – Mark Oliver

The Coogee Pavilion on Sydney's Coogee Beach is home to a Mark Oliver mural.

IW 2

Known for a great place to spot whales, it seems fitting to decorate the interior of the pavilion with whale themed art. Commissioned by Hemmes Trading in Australia, Mark worked on composing a scene around whale watching. He explains " At this stage it was still a poster that was required, but as the project developed, it was decided that the illustration could occupy one whole wall of the games area, a mere 15 metres x 3 metres! A company in Sydney were engaged to create a 'foil' print from my digital file which would then be stuck to the wall, giving the impression that it had been painted directly onto the wall." The photos below

show the super result!

James Grover paints a theatre land mural in Zizzi Ristorante on The Strand.

James's design was for the alcove space where he has represented a selection of the well-known theatres in the area. He says "The focus of the West End 'Theatreland' is of course the shows themselves, however the theatre buildings are often iconic and beautifully grand venues." Using acrylic pens and emulsion, James has drawn St Martin’s Theatre, Lyceum Theatre, Queen’s Theatre, Victoria Palace Theatre, Novello Theatre, London Palladium and Palace Theatre, along with characters from some well-known productions. He was also asked to produce a decorative mural for the George Bernard Shaw quote wall, which includes some theatre inspired elements, all this was completed over a period of six days.

James Grover paints the interior of Zizzi Ristorante in Meadowhall, Sheffield.

James Grover was asked to create murals to decorate the main restaurant wall and corridor and to bring individuality to the site by finding inspiration in local history or landmarks. His work is based around the rich musical heritage of the city of Sheffield and is initially seen as a decorative map. After looking closer at the mural, "...the city centre map’s street names are song titles with the year in which they were released...creating a giant quiz and igniting the natural competitive spirit to solve puzzles. For example, one street is named 'Sing It Back (1998)' – the answer would be 'Moloko'. The corridor features stylised album covers, also showing only the release date", he says. James wanted to hold the viewer's attention with this project and provide a talking point too - the restaurant is in a shopping centre and has a high turnover of customers with shorter meal times. The mural was painted on-site using acrylic and emulsion.

Poetic mural by Stewart Easton

Highly talented artist and embroiderer Stewart Easton (represented by Artist Partners) was commissioned to produce a large mural for Outline Editions Christmas Print Sale.  The wall mural needed to represent the area of Stoke Newington.

Stewart was inspired by reading that the poet Edgar Allen Poe had been educated in Stoke Newington. The mural itself is displayed  almost on the exact spot, where the school Edgar Allen Poe attended is placed. The image is loosely based on his  poem "The Raven"

Debut Art was approached by Cubbitt House to help on a project for their new restaurant, Percy and Founders, opening soon in Fitzrovia, London. The brief was to create a perspective installation of the company logo on the site of the new restaurant. The video of the installation would then be used on the restaurant's holding page. Steve Smith AKA Neasden Control Centre is no stranger to large scale installations so his skills were called upon and he soon set to work.

… and then they came for the children

 

… and then they came for the children is an eight meter wall drawing which Stewart Easton made for a solo show which was part of a residency he had at St Mary's Art Centre, Virginia City, Nevada, USA.

After a successful residency at the Art Centre in Nevada during July 2013, Stewart was invited back for a longer stint covering July and August 2014.

During the residency Stewart was required to teach a five day workshop on illustration, narrative and embroidery. The workshop was designed to demonstrate the processes he uses as an embroiderer and illustrator. Along with this, he was also asked to host a solo exhibition of new work. Stewart had stitched ten 23 x 23cm embroideries, and whilst on the residency he stitched a further nine, along with nine pen and ink drawings.

Stewart also had a large wall which he kept free of work as he wanted to create a wall drawing. Stewart had recently created a large six meter wall drawing for the English Folk Dance and Song Society at Cecil Sharp House in Camden, London and he intends to create a new drawing on the wall which would tie in the embroideries and drawings.

The wall drawing was applied directly onto the wall using Posca pens and paint. Stewart hadn't roughed out a plan for the wall as he wanted the freedom of one element feeding into the next. Drawing on walls is a new direction for him and allows him to transfer the stories, history and folklore of location directly into that location.

Below is a short statement based upon the exhibition '...and then they came for the children

 '... and then they came for the children” Easton has withdrawn all forms of digital media in producing the work, and has married the innocent wonder of childhood with the free-form traditional processes of hand drawing and hand stitch creating works which on the surface appear 'twee' yet are underpinned with a sinister edge and circumstance. 

Stewart's enchanting work can be seen and commissioned, and his agent Artist Partners look forward to many more interesting installations and exhibitions of this most versatile and creative artist working in mediums such as embroidery and painting techniques.

Meadows and Woodland

Darwin Holiday Parks commission James Grover to put his art on the walls of their Piran Meadows site near Newquay.

Meadows and woodland were the inspiration for James, he also included some references to the sea too with Newquay's position on the Cornwall coast. James says "It was completely drawn in acrylic pens, with the background colour done in emulsion."

Nature comes to Zizzi

James Grover adds more of his magic to the walls of Zizzi Ristorante in Market Harborough.

The mural was hand drawn live on site, using acrylic pen paints and emulsion. And referencing the history of the area with it’s close proximity to Rockingham Forest, James says “In prehistoric times the area was the largest expanse of woodland in the country, but deforestation has seen a large reduction in its size. More recently, in medieval England, the forest was allocated as a Royal Hunting Forest where wild boar, fallow deer and pheasant were in abundance. Nowadays, the remaining forest is protected and is still a key feature of the area.”  Another superb Zizzi interior by James!
