  • Mander Centre, Wolverhampton (UK) Mural
    Mander Centre, Wolverhampton (UK) Muralwhile studying at the University of Wolverhampton, we had the opportunity to create a large flowing mural for the Mander Centre, Wolverhampton for their new temporary arcade installation. The goal of the mural was to create a flowing mural that was eye catching and went well alongside the arcade to grab the attention of all demographics and pull people into the arcade installation.
  • The Inner and Outer Universe
    The Inner and Outer UniverseThe Inner and Outer Universe consisted of a brief that looked to create two large scale murals to be situated inside The Mander Centre Shopping Centre in Wolverhampton. The murals consisted of artworks created to encompass an abstract and botanical landscape. Both artworks were later longlist winners in the World Illustration Awards 2022
