We’re based in E17 and our 'hood is peppered with geometric confections created by the venerable Mr. McClure.
With their engaging colour palettes and weathered, reclaimed wood, his painted murals and mosaics have brightened up locations from the Olympic Park to Amsterdam, Berlin, and beyond. The balance he strikes between crisp geometry and re-used materials is a language he continues to explore – with consistently rewarding results – in public artworks, 3D wall sculptures and prints.
Mark was planning to make more prints and keen to find an appropriate platform, so it looks like we timed our launch to perfection. What’s more, he’s got some great plans for future editions. We don’t want to give too much away, but surface texture will play a role – as it does in his 3D work – and when it comes to colour he’s full of surprises. His recent mural opposite The Bell pub in E17 is bursting with bubblegum pinks; if you’re in the area it’s well worth a look.
Colour and texture play a role in his first Look Up edition, its animated angles fizzing away. The overall effect is one of motion, suspended somehow, yet teetering on the brink of activity.
