One thing we love to do at Graffiti Life is to collaborate with music artists. There are so many talented musicians forging their own path in the industry by harnessing the power of the internet and social media in order to spread their music. And if we can help put more ears onto their music; we’re all about it. One such artist that’s popped up on our radar recently is the very talented Charlotte Black. Charlotte was born in Scotland but moved to London to pursue her dreams. Her songs are regularly queued up on our studio Spotify, so it was a pleasure to collaborate with her on an artistic project of a different kind.
Charlotte is all about colour. The artwork for her new single ‘Los Angeles’ features a photograph of Charlotte on the cover, with the refracted light of a prism reflected on her face. We knew this would be challenging to paint, but that’s probably what drew us to the image! You can find this portrait right by the exit of the busy Shoreditch High Street Station. In this grey January, it’s nice to punctuate the landscape with a splash of colour.
The piece was painted by Graffiti Life artist, Sophie Meseg, who braved the elements over two days to complete the work. Sophie says that, while painting this piece, she was stopped by the public more times than ever before, as people asked questions and complimented her on her work. This is a testament to the strength of the image, but also to Sophie’s amazing painting skills!
