This project was born out of frustration about the lockdown and all the cancelled work caused by the pandemic. I challenged myself to go outside and spray paint somewhere on a daily base during the month February. In the mornings I started my day watching the news, chose a topic that appealed to me and designed my stencil. I printed and cut it and went outside to spray paint it on the graffiti wall in the park. I ended the month by creating a huge self portrait which was to be seen for weeks!
