Vernissage ( a fancy word for Party)

On 30 June the King’s Land will be completed, officially. As you will know if you’ve been following this blog, it’s been a good few months of making murals and remaking them. After June 30 though, the murals will stay as they are until the building comes down, in late autumn. I’ll have covered every building on the estate.

So, those of you who are in or near London, please do come on Saturday and celebrate the project. I can’t promise great weather, but I can promise art and music.

Best,
NAZ

Two New Creatures

Despite the weather two new creatures have appeared on The King’s Land, swimming up and plonking themselves on the wall, peeping in the window… We had a day of sun, and this is what happened:

They are on Whiston Road.

It’s raining again, needless to say.

Unbelievable!

I can hardly believe it. Yesterday it was marginally sunny and nice and I got ready to get out and do murals. But my assistant could not make it so I put it off till Thursday – today. I wake up today and it’s RAIN AGAIN. I mean – AGAIN!

That means we had one (count it ONE) dry and barely-sunny day since exactly 1 April.

I’m glad I didn’t do a mural yesterday cos it  would not have had time to dry properly. Lesson to be learned: paste-ups are a risk in England. But even if I was using paint, the walls are streaming and nothing would work. The old crumbly walls hold a lot of damp too, that’s why whatever you’re using needs some time to dry.

please put me on the wall!

On another note, the project is featured in the excellent blog “MiddleEastLondon
