With Blackpool’s urban art festival, Sand, Sea & Spray, kicking off this Friday, altblackpool will be catching up with some of the artists to give you the lowdown on what to expect. First up, a talent whose work features at the North West Baseline Studio on Victoria Street. He recently featured at the massive urban art festival, Upfest, in Bristol. He’s known about town as a painter of pigeons. His work can be seen adorning walls across Europe. It’s the Fylde’s own Lowdown!
Why urban art?
I have always been inspired by art that is available for anyone to interact with in the public domain. This is what got me interested in spray-painting rather than more traditional painting techniques.
What’s your proudest achievement?
My proudest achievement to date is a project I have just completed that is still under wraps. However, when it is revealed to the public, it will be on show to a lot of people.
Which artist inspires you?
My favourite artist at the moment has got to be Conor Harrington.
Do you have a recurring theme?
Where would you most like to spray?
I love painting anywhere, but if I had to pick one place it would be 5 Pointz in New York
Any clues about your plans for Sand, Sea and Spray 2013?
I am going to be painting an old, wise and weathered face.
