Spring Fling Rural Mural | 2014 | Mull of Galloway

 In 2014 Recoat curated a project in Dumfries and Galloway with Spring Fling that saw murals painted on rural buildings, vehicles and ‘unusual objects’. I was given 2 buoys to paint and decided to celebrate our proximity to the sea by painting sailors and fishermen on to them. This led to a whole series of projects where I have painted on buoys, I love the challenge of it and how my drawings are playfully distorted by the shape.
