Word To Mother @ Cafe 1001

I got our good friend and artist, Word To Mother to paint a lovely 6m X 4m wall at Cafe 1001 in London. (I work there part-time doing their online promotions) It was actually a hard slog as the cafe only closes from Midnight until 6am, so this was the only window of opportunity for painting. I must have made him around 10-15 cups of tea each night (the whole mural took 4 night sessions) as well as rolling countless zoots to keep morale high and creative juices flowing...The end result was an amazingly large piece, rich in layers and given a lovely vintage feel when seen in person. He used a mixture of materials to create this effect, from spraypaint, acrylics, emulsions, sandpaper and of course, tea!
