June 2013 London Street Sculpture Series for the British Red Cross

Recent Press:

This project was planned in collaboration with the British Red Cross for Refugee week, with the aim of highlighting the positive contributions refugees have made to British history and culture. We have focused on various iconic figures, each with their own refugee origins: 
~ Lucian Freud, Freddie Mercury, Lord Richard Rogers and Sir John Houblon~

The following images for this project were taken either by myself or British Red Cross Photographer Matthew Percival and are acknowledged respectively.  For comments or general questions please feel free to email me at cc_art@live.co.uk

Street Sculptures and communicating a story/message: The street sculptures and concept Ads I created on this blog (most recent first) came about as I wanted to try and develop an original way of combining street art with portraying a thought-provoking message. A key aspect of the majority of these sculptures focuses on isolated individuals who have fallen through the cracks of society but who nonetheless show a resilience and human spirit in the face of adversity. Therefore, the concept Ads, slogans and messages I have created are in keeping with this and are aimed at highlighting certain societal issues such as Homelessness, Substance Abuse, Health and Lifestyle Choices.
