Your Space or Mine: Artists and designers spread messages of positivity across the UK
Following on from its popular Community is Kindness project, the Build Hollywood family of Jack, Jack Arts and Diabolical have collaborated with artists and designers from across the UK to bring even more positivity to our streets.
Ben Eine has produced bespoke artwork to appear on poster and billboard sites in 10 UK cities. The work for the collaboration features two designs with different messages: "And another fine mess" and "I'm so happy, very very happy". The imposing and engaging words, in bright, bold type set against a black background, are designed both to disrupt and inspire.
Yinka Ilori has designed one poster space in Blackfriars London with the messaging, 'Better days are coming, I promise', in support of the official charity of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust: CW+ working in collaboration with KCAW.co.uk.
Elsewhere there are artworks by Super Freak in Birmingham, Lois O'Hara in Brighton, Holy Moly in Bristol, #medicineonthewalls in Bristol, Suzanne Carpenter (of Patternistas) in Cardiff, Martin Baillie in Edinburgh, Social Recluse in Glasgow, Micah Purnell in Manchester and Beth Woollvin in Sheffield.
"These artists have diverse approaches, styles and perspectives," says Khaly Nguyen of the collective. "What they have in common is their goal of uniting and inspiring the community, not just during the crisis but every single day. We are excited to be collaborating with these extraordinary artists for our latest Your Space or Mine project which we hope will bring some joy into peoples lives."
