In 2017 I was accepted to take part in The Big Hoot , an art trail in and around Auckland. Each artist selected painted a large fiber glass owl. At the end of the trail the owls will be auctioned off to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation

Here is the artist list and below is a sneak peek of my piece. We can’t do a full reveal until March 2018 when the trail goes on display.

Owl statue project to raise money for Child Cancer Foundation

These giant owls — individually designed by artists from around the world — are about to start popping up all over Auckland. The Big Hoot will start as an art trail but is eventually expected to raise thousands of dollars for the Child Cancer Foundation. All Blacks great Jerome Kaino gave Seven Sharp a sneak preview of the statues last night.

I helped Aayan create the “Femme Fierce” event to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Care and to celebrate International Women’s day in 2014. The event was the largest gathering of female street artists in the UK to date.  Some people will telly you we made the Guinness Book of records but I don’t think this part of the project actually succeeded. Still, it was great to see so many talented ladies painting together. Below is some of the media the event attracted.
