Artwork as part of The Graff Spiral, an exposition celebrating the dynamic street art of Sheffield. It is a substantial painted, sculptural installation, the structure designed by students from the department of Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield, under the guidance of Professor Rachel Horn, local sculptor Anthony Bennett, structural engineers ARUP, who have been providing support to the teams, advising on practical forms of construction and fundamental design principles, and Street artist Mila K. Five groups of 6 students competed to design a structure which could be manufactured easily by volunteers, to a tight budget, which would be structurally sound, and which would optimise surface area to facilitate graffiti art. Curated by Mila K, nine of the most exciting up and coming Sheffield street artists; Jim McElvaney, Eugene Booms, Marcus Method, Trik09, Nazusk, Mila K, Rob Lee, Mikk Murray, and Aliss Curtis will create a symbolic collaborative artwork evoking the spirit of resurgence, vitality, creativity and optimism for the community of Hillsborough.

Tag the Jewels is a worldwide street art initiative for which over 30 artists across 6 continents were invited to remix the group’s iconic album cover art – two opposing hands, one forming a gun, the other holding a chain.
The artists were given a very simple brief and the freedom to express their own unique interpretations of Nicholas Gazin’s original artwork.
These signature pieces designed by respected local artists have gone up contemporaneously on walls from Los Angeles to Lagos, Paris to Jakarta, Sao Paolo to New Delhi and many more. It is the first global installation of it’s kind.
Run the Jewels is grateful to these talented artists for their generous and inspiring contributions.
Massive thanks to City Of Colours for inviting me up to paint City of Colours festival; bringing together over 100 artists, who will transform Digbeth into one of the UKs largest outdoor art galleries.
