Stamford Downtown - Public art / by Mark

Every year or so, Stamford Downtown host a public art contest - this years theme was 'Shapes' and my design was one of 39 chosen from 150 entries. It will be on display on the streets of Stamford over the summer before being auctioned off to the highest bidder in September.

As a freelancer, I'm used to working on multiple projects as they all pile in at the same time. However, this time I was trying to move house and take on this project on top of keeping my regular clients happy. As this is my 5th public art piece for Stamford, I knew how long it would take me to paint this design on a 4'sq cube so I printed the design on vinyl. Crisis averted, house moved, projects done. I never thought it was going to be possible to turn this around in 1 week.
