Let me set the scene..
Five years ago three young artists with big ambitions have just set up ‘Graffiti Life’, in a bid to turn their passion into a career and do something positive with their talents. Working from dilapidated, freezing cold garage in South Norwood the small team are living hand to mouth. With a small number of clients under their belt the group of artists decide to deliver a Christmas message to the people that had offered their support in getting their vision off of the ground. On a cold December day in 2012 the very first Graffiti Life Christmas wall is painted, and distributed to a small number of clients and followers on social media. Unexpectedly the art work is shared and significantly impacts attention and following for the collective, undoubtedly paving the way for the future and starting the wave of momentum that the crew continues to ride many years later. Now with an awesome client list and a team of skilled project managers and artists, operating from their gallery / studio in East London the team continue to take the graffiti artform to new and exciting places.
This wall started an annual Graffiti Life tradition of the Christmas wall, as each year we try to raise a smile from you and say thank you in the best way we know how. Here are our previous walls, to get you feeling festive.
So with that, we present to you our latest, our fan art interpretation of the childhood classic ‘The Snowman’. We here at Graffiti Life want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. Oh and because we like to do things a little differently, this little guy is a fully animated gif. It took a long time to paint, and repaint, and repaint, but we think it’s worth it. Enjoy!
