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.

Kevin McDermott, Premm Design Associate Director said of the project :-

“We felt that Lee’s vibrant, joyous style was perfect for this campaign. We are able to communicate the wide range of activities available at each of the RHS Gardens, along with the related flora and fauna, all with a strong sense of fun in a way that appeals to the 6-9 year old target audience and their families.”

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.

A Music Montage

This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.

Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

Christopher has made some vibrant paintings of the people and places from these European countries including the UK, Poland and Spain. And aided by his own global travels, he was the perfect artist to be part of this book.
