Following the request by some members of the public to remove a mural painted by artist Chris Miller in the East End Park area of Leeds, I was invited to speak to Andrew Edwards on BBC Radio Leeds about the acceptance of “graffiti” and give my opinion on the issue. Although I wasn’t a huge fan of this particular artwork, I discussed the importance of providing platforms for young talented people to showcase their creativity in the public realm. I also covered the different levels of traditional graffiti and touched a little on my own personal beginnings in painting large scale murals.
“Some of these things can take a long time to paint and logistically it’s a real project management role that you take on as an artist when you take on these projects.”
