Project #003

Commissioned in 2021 by Student Housing, Project 031 plans started to develop in summer of 2021. Having completed 2 previous projects discussions started with international artists to ensure project 003 would be as well received as out other works. With the help of internationally recognised street artists Sophie Mess and Zabou we were introduced to Curtis Hylton and the design was finalised.
