Bristol

I started the Brick Project at Hamilton House on Stokes Croft where I was renting studio space, establishing an activity that encouraged underground artists to work collaboratively. I had been creating work in the Bristol graffiti scene and had realized that new paintings were often tagged up (painted over by "rival" artists) within hours of being completed.


Hoping to create a neutral space for artists to reject competition for cooperation, I developed the project voluntarily using leftover paint from a commission I had recently finished. I quickly realized that it wasn’t just assembling a community among artists but also encouraging the general public to take part in creating what became a well-respected monument in an area where themes of gentrification and its injustice were frequently exposed by activists and the local creative community. This project became a testament to a neighborhood struggling to prevent corporate interests from commandeering “up-and-coming” areas. Following this, I created two more projects in Bristol sites that have unfortunately since been demolished. Those bricks are featured on this page.
