WHITECROSS STREET PARTY
- ART FAIR 2021
Every summer, the YMCA London City and North and partners, host a free event where street-artist comes to paint, amazing people come and offer workshops, people sell their crafts and art and local food businesses are there to feed the hungry masses.
In 2021, the event will exceptionally happen on the 11 & 12th of September 2021. With a few stalls less than previous years to respect social distancing, the event still promises loads of fun for families, locals and passers-by. And I'm pleased to be participating in this year's event with a stall of my art!
This year, the event's theme is climate change, climate justice, biodiversity and all matters of the environment. I worked on some new artworks especially for this event on the theme.
Thus, I have made:
- 5 artworks of British wildflowers at risk of extinction
- 5 artworks to showcase the biodiversity of mushrooms
- 10 artworks of rare or uncommon British moths (5 with their wings closed and 5 with their wings opened)
- 50 limited edition lino prints of a plant
I am quite nervous and excited about this event and I hope to talk with many people, get to know the community and learn from this new experience.
