The huge smokehouse gallery overlooks the olympic stadium and its internal architecture reflects this strongly!

The brief was to create a piece of work which evoked the mood of spring.  I created the artwork above using calligraphy inks and tea.  For this particular project I worked with a very pale white tea to keep colours clean and used a minimal amount of graphite.  The scanned artwork was then applied to the product by the design team at JOYCE.  I have included a couple of visuals and roughs that I worked up at the development stage of the project above. The original artwork will be on show later this year as part of a new collection of work.
