This is a mural painted in a primary school playground. I worked with artist Alex Martinez on this project producing a garden of Eden image as requested by the school. We wanted to make the wall look like the bricks had fallen away exposing a beautiful, tropical paradise. We had a very receptive audience during break-times with rows of children sitting behind us watching the image unfold, clapping and cheering.

Commissioned by Brighton & Hove council the James Brown memorial piece covers a three storey building in central Brighton. Painted two days after his death with Odisy and Aroe, we chose images from his different album covers. A sad but funny day as we could hear passers by shouting 'I'm a sex machine, huh!' and 'ow, hit me' amongst many other famous sayings from the godfather of soul.
