Facade of colour
“The property is really old and has been in the neighbourhood for a long time. It’s great painting this building because it has formed a part of the barrio for many years and I live nearby and have grown up in this neighbourhood,” said Sam.
Sam said the collaboration between the four artists worked really well. “The idea was that we all got together to paint,” said Sam. “It’s in a free style, there were no limits and we didn’t make a sketch or plan anything beforehand. The concept was to make something abstract with each one painting something personal in their own style with all the artworks mixing together.”

Amor has also created an organic design with roots and vines that are seemingly connected to a plant that is growing on the cornice of the building.
Plants and architecture
“We also tried to respect the lines of the different colours and the building’s architecture too,” added Sam. “The wall is really high as well as wide and it’s also near to a busy road so the impact is striking when you go past it and see it.”
