“The Sincil Bank Art Project launched the first of a series of murals and public art installations in Lincoln, UK in an area of the city that hasn’t received much attention. I was invited by the organisers to paint the first artwork: my own version of Lincolnshire-born Sir Isaac Newton. The genius scientist, modelled by Jono P., is portrayed holding a prism while the spectrum of colours shines on his face. The prism is painted over the chimney of the house. He’s surrounded by books, his telescope and an apple – all reminders of his achievements and work.
The mural took 5 days to complete and is visible at all times on Kirkby Street. A huge thanks to the Sincil Bank Art Project, Harry and Adrian, and Gustavo for their help.”
