I am very excited to announce I was selected as one of nine finalist in the 2012, Sheffield International Mural Fest. This will be my third consecutive Mural Fest and I am hoping to defend my title after last years success. The picture below is the miniature I painted as an entry. For the competition, I will apply this design to the wall provided in Mural Park, Sheffield. The organiser stated this year, there were a record number of entries including many from overseas. I am looking forward to catching up with some old friends and meeting some new faces while working amongst such a high calibre of mural artists.
This year the poem is titled Food Bowl by Lorraine McNeair: “The golden bloom of fertility lies on the land/And feeds us with flavour.”
The whirling, whizzing, wheezing wheels of modernity steam into the bucolic landscape, in search of food to feed the bloated masses. This pictorial narrative explores the collision of the rural landscape and the urban sprawl by depicting their current state of existence.
