Here is an overview of the festival wall in progress. This was a great project to work on and the first time that I have ever painted dog portraits. The project was born after the Brighton Festival team wanted something inspired by this year’s guest director’s love of dogs. American artist, Laurie Anderson performed a concert for dogs during the festival and a competition was run by the festival for dog owners to have pictures of their dog painted. The project took ten days and in that time i received lots of great feedback as well as other dog owners trying to talk me in to adding ‘just one more dog’. You can see the completed mural on Kensington Street, Brighton.
Thanks to Ten of Swords and Rosanna for helping with a couple of the dogs and making the end of the mural come together. Thanks also to Brighton Festival, Healys for providing the wall, Facelift for the elevation and Graff City for their continuing support and swift paint delivery.
