“I met up with Castle during my 5 month study in Wellington, New Zealand. Coming from South Africa, Ivan has an interesting background that forms his perspectives and pieces to be unlike any I’ve really seen before. There is a great array of graffiti style artwork in the area, and much of it coming from his crew, Pirates. It was great to get to talk and paint with an artist of the area and see how perspectives on art like this change country to country.”

Spraying Bricks joined the crew as they embarked on their biggest wall to date. Situated on Leonard Street opposite the creative den that in the Book Club and the famous Pure Evil gallery, the guys have a prime spot in the heart of Shoreditch, accompanying artwork from the likes of STIK. The mural is heavily based on the theme of the 70’s and 80’s TV show RAINBOW and with the influence of graffiti fused with characters they have created a truly colourful and amazing piece.
