Congratulations Jenny by Matthew J Watkins

   

If you don't already know, Jenny Jones made history this week on becoming Britain's first ever Winter Olympic medalist on snow at Sochi 2014.

I feel proud to have worked with Jenny back in 2011 when she commissioned me to create artwork for her self-designed pro board.

Not a job I'd usually accept but for Jenny, a woman who had forged her way was something and someone I wanted to support. Congratulations Jenny!

Z Project, Detroit by Lucy

"Library Street Collective, a gallery in downtown Detroit curated 22 new works, mostly 130 feet by 14 feet, by 27 luminaries from nearly a dozen countries.

Individually, the works by artists such as Saner, How and Nosm, Pose and Revok are feats of urban narrative. Collectively, they make for one of the most impressive single-site collections of murals anywhere."

"Underlying Forces" 130 feet by 14 feet.

Floor 2 at the Z Project, 1234 Library St, Detroit.

Myself and Matt Watkins spent ten days in Detroit, in freezing temperatures (so cold the paint and brushes froze instantly) painting 2  large murals.

Amongst 26 other artists from across the world in a 10-story parking garage which opens to the public from the 30th Dec.
