This week I had the pleasure of being invited back for a third time to speak to BBC Radio Leeds about “street art” and my role in it’s increased acceptance in the city of Leeds. I spoke about my ‘Hello & Welcome To Leeds’ mural which was recently shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards 2017. I also tried my best to unpick the classic conversation of defining the difference between traditional graffiti and street-art, as well as talking about my involvement in the planning of the brilliant ‘A City Less Grey’ project that East Street Arts have started in Leeds.
“Because of the nature of applying paint to a wall, there’s always going to be small kinks in the wall that you didn’t know about. It’s never going to be as flat as a piece of paper essentially. You need to be open to changing the design in little ways.”
