AShop

AShop is an artist collective specializing in urban arts, artistic event activations and muralism. The primary objective is to produce large scale public art that speaks and appeals to the population while communicating the artistic direction of each of the participating creatives. While each member of the group has a unique artistic journey, they come together through their passion for urban beautification. This cooperative spirit generates an exceptional artistic atmosphere, which is the basis of their creative process. Each project is approached as a custom collaboration between all members, from conceptualization to final execution, with everyone bringing their ideas, styles, techniques, and experience. It is this collaborative process that makes each tailor-made creation a direct expression of the members of the collective, and the result is innovative projects, dynamic, authentic and reflective of the community and context that they are presented within.

Artwork description

Inspired by the fluidity and texture of the Symbolist movement, a woman is interlaced in dynamic draperies. Floating in an imaginary space, she is crowned by the constellations. These celestial ornaments represent the dreamworld. Her majestic robe trails for the entire 15 meters of the mural and explodes into a multicolored beam of light and energy. The rich tapestry of brightly coloured shapes are interlaced with more illustrative components and graffiti lettering to give a good balance of textures and movement.
Painted by: Ankh One and Dodo Ose.

The project was possible thanks to the contribution of Julie Drewitt.
