Today was the opening of the Carnaby Street popup, in collaboration with Team GB!
The initial work on the mural shows the contingent of British fans and athletes, descending on The National Stadium in Tokyo, whilst also offering a nod to where these athletes have come from.
The upper portion of my mural shows off some of the unique London cityscape – that many of our athletes and Team GB fan/support base, call home – whilst also pulling in elements of the Japanese skyline including Mount Fuji. The exuberant crowd surrounds the stadium; having made their way to Tokyo from the UK. The physical closeness of the Japanese and British city architecture in my piece, symbolising the closeness and unity of the nations, over the course of the games.
The lower portion shows an excited Team GB! Proudly flying their Union Jack flags, roaring alongside the Team GB lion, as the Olympic ceremony officially kicks off Tokyo 2020. And what a games it’s set to be for the British female athletes! 201 British female Olympians were in the squad, alongside a team of 175 males. The 2020 Olympics is truly shaping up to be the year of the female Olympian!
Can’t wait to get back at it tomorrow.
