Mural for Luther, BBC1

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther is back for his fourth run, with the two hour special airing running over the next two weeks.

For those of you that are die-hard fans, the most of thought that you saw the back of maverick copper John Luther when series three finished in 2013. But the show’s creator, Neil Cross, and its star, Idris Elba, decided they wanted to make more (lucky us!).

However, the new two part instalment is apparently not for the faint-hearted. There’s a cannibalistic killer on the loose in London who is wreaking havoc in the capital. The crime drama itself is mainly set in East London, therefore was the perfect area of London to host a mural for the new series.

The mural is located just off of Shoreditch High Street, on a wall which our Graffiti Life artists regularly paint. Situated in the heart of Shoreditch this particular spot is a prime advertising space to promote the new series. With a huge total of 770k people passing the mural each month, the mural will get maximum attention. This, alongside the curiosity the public had when our Graffiti Artists were painted this past weekend, has drummed up social media attention and received a lot of positive feedback.

The mural itself was painted over this past weekend and took four of our professional artists a day to complete. Focusing on the main character the mural stands out in our bleak winter days by being painted in vivid red colours. In addition to our painting, strings were also attached, to add a 3D effect which takes reference from crime scene practices.
