Watch an amazing slide show of the Rainbow walk subway project Here.
This was a great project, it happened in South Woodham, which is near Chelmsford in Essex.
I was contacted by Jackie Lane who works for Chelmsford borough council, she was part of a team of 'mostly volunteers’ who were fighting a losing battle against graffiti scrawls that kept appearing on a subway in Woodham.
We got our heads together and came up with a plan to decorate the subway with a huge spray paint mural. Once Jackie had sorted some funding out (most came from Network rail ‘who own the subway’ the rest from local community groups) we got started on sorting out who we were going to involve in the project. The Plan was to give everyone in the community the opportunity to contribute design ideas. We had a couple of press releases, flyers went out and we held a drop-in session at the library to gather ideas for the content of the mural from all across the community. Loads of great design ideas were submitted by young and old people from all across the community.
We were asked to paint 400m of wall for Proctor & gamble at their London plant. The brief was brand the wall with products made by the company. These guys make 'Everything!' So we were spoilt for choice. It was an amazing project at an incredible venue.
Whilst this was going on I was working with the year 9 students during their Art classes at the nearby William de ferras School. I worked with 10 of the year 9 classes alongside Miss Kirby and Mr. Long the art teachers. Together we introduced the project and worked in the classroom with over 220 students.

4 Artists in Southend
We Paint a lot of skateparks, sometimes with the local users through community projects workshops & drop in's.
A lot of our skatepark projects come to us after skateparks have gathered graffiti scrawls and started to look a bit run down. We give them a makeover & crucially try to engage with the local users as part of the process.

corporate interior design
I recently worked on a project to make art for the walls of a newly built NHS Cahms centre for young people.
The new St Aubyns Centre needed to provide a comfortable environment for a group about to move in.
Jevan & I visited Long View & did several workshops with the groups to develop their ideas into something we could paint in the new facility.
Before the move, we met & discussed their ideas with the architect, Who approved several of our design ideas,
We went in during construction of the new build & painted the new residents ideas directly on to the walls.
It was a really nice project & a lot of fun developing the ideas.
Big Thanks to Judith at Firstsite & Jeven Watkins who I worked with on this project. See the whole project here on a flickr gallery
Prison Graffiti Art Project.
Me & Darren, were lucky enough to go to prison for graff, and get out on the same day.
We did 4 days actually,
Getting outta prison 4 times in as many days was was reason to be pleased.....
The project went really well too!
We worked with about 8 guys, did a design with them in a classroom, then later in the week we painted the side of the chapel in the prison yard with their ideas.
They picked it up really well and everybody was pleased with their design. Some of them will be in there for at least another 10 years so it was good to change up the rhythm of life for them a bit, n do something different.
Big Thanks to Juliet martin Arts development officer at Chelmsford.
