Neuro Silence Mural

We finally did it, spray-painted  our first mural and we fooking loved it. The guys at the Windmill Pub on Lambeth High Street opened their doors for us and asked us to create something special in the new outside seating area. And we happily obliged! Doug took the lead (obviously) and mocked-up an illustration of two hands coming together, alive with particles omitting from the tips of the fingers. The hands were first drawn with chalk, then  spray painted and finished off with some black line brush work (acrylic paint). There is even some fine hatching with acrylic poster pen. We used a pen and ink illustration we created as reference and smashed it up in about 5.5 hours

We were in a small rush as South Africa were playing rugby in the afternoon and we wanted to catch the game while the sun was still out. I’m happy to say that we achieved our deadline, our rugby team won and we got pretty merry drinking numerous beers and tequila in the sunshine. Nailed it.

The peice is called NEURO SILENCE , named by Lee, the man who sorted us out this space in the first place!

We had a practise run a few weeks ago where we both learnt new techniques, using spraypaint for the first time, using a variety of spray paint nozzles and colours and, feeling comfortable enough, we knew we could pull it off. We hope to continue painting large murals, or street art pieces, and hopefully this will open more opportunities to get involved in the booming London street art scene.  If you run a pub or have an area you would like decorated with some MFF Graffiti action then please get in touch!

We’ve also got a timelapse planned, courtesy of Evan Skuthorpe (@PhotoStorys), Henk Vermeulen and Jan Posthumus which is being edited as we speak so hopefully we can share that with you soon.
