By The Bridge, a lovely family run cafe in Hackney invited back to freshen up my previous mural painted on their front wall. I created a portrait of young actress and activist Yara Shahiri, with a view of the canal in the background. This piece also works as an temporary installation: I painted on a piece of cut cardboard her hand going over the railings. It looks as if she is leaning and resting on the actual railings. Another way to play with the space!
