I particularly love the colour palette for this artwork. It’s so rich, and perfectly compliments the colours used on the unit further down the street.

My intention with this piece is to deliver a message of optimism to the general public in a fun and playful way. I want people to walk alongside the artwork, be drawn in by the scale and colour of the work and then read, digest and synthesise the message. My hope is that this will encourage a moment of reflection and individuals will leave with a feeling of positivity.
In recent years the landscape of the high streets in our UK cities has changed. With some businesses struggling to compete with online shopping, we have seen more empty shop units popping up as a result. Art installation projects are a brilliant way to revitalise the window spaces of empty units, whilst engaging the public in interesting and exciting ways.
The ‘YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT’S AROUND THE CORNER’ illustrated vinyl installation was commissioned by GO! Southampton in partnership with Studio Bad architects and Gentian, JLL, RK Real Estate and Lambert Smith Hampton. I’m a big proponent of collaboration and working collaboratively with the partners in this way allows a project which is mutually beneficial for all parties involved.
