Today I had the honour of painting my good friends new Barber shop (Kingdom Barbers) in Footscray West.
This was a big scale portrait using aerosols which was a new challenge for me. I began sketching my outlines and making sure the proportions were looking good before adding the grey tones.
One of the highlights for me when I’m painting in public is meeting members of the local community. People tend to be warm and genuinely appreciate the new art and what it brings to their neighborhood.
Big shout out to Rima for holding down the ladder and for the laughs.
Thanks to Joe and Rach for the opportunity!
I look forward to seeing this place packed with young people from all over the city.
