I have painted hundreds of exterior walls in my career this was the longest at 1 Kilometre of wall space.I painted in one continuous white line changing shape to describe amoungst other things cats, snails and singers all the way.
This project was a collaboration with the Edible bus stop.
The community success of the 1 kilometre white line wall
led to local school St Georges primary to host a project.
The students decided they would like to see a full size blue whale on the playground wall.
The entire wall was painted with Graphenstone paint, an ECO friendly lime-based paint that actually absorbs C02.
During the project the students were able to calculate that our whale would absorb 30kg of ambient C02 over 5 years.
This could be the first time a painted mural has had direct eco-function in one of the most polluted areas of London.
