City Lights

Thanks to Street Art Walking and Simon Sheridan, the opportunity arose to be apart of the Troublemaker's Festival in Swansea, Wales, UK. The idea was to create your own theatre poster for an upcoming show of your own or imagining what would have been shown at the Palace Theatre in Swansea. Which is an amazing but unused old theatre building.

The lane has been dubbed Theatre Lane, where they have pasted the works up from all forms of artists. Feels surreal to have a work pasted up all the way in the UK. 

I hand created my poster with paper, tea, caran d'ache pastels, graphite and ink to advertise Charlie Chaplin's City Lights film from 1931.
