NOV 07: NEW YORK & CROSBY COMMISSION


November was been a fantastic month for Currentstate as I was shortlisted, and then finally selected to provide a signature artwork for the main entrance to i-land, a new Crosby development in the city centre. The brief was to encompasses essential themes of vibrancy, play, city style, peace, comfort, lifestyle and inspiration. My proposal was to create a bright and bold panoramic montage that spans from Birmingham scenery to New York City, depicting lifestyle, people, bars, cafes, shops, NYC cabs, and street signs.
The proposal also included a brief trip to New York so I could work from my own stock photography, and capture movement and fluidity of real city life. This is the final artwork above, its a massive 7x3 metres and its due to be installed in Dec. I'll try and upload some of the other photo's I took in New York.
