Change

Old Street, London
September 2010
Freehand Spray Paint on Wall

In 2008 Peter Sinclair contacted Steph at Stella Dore to ask if she could recommend a street artist to paint a mural to honour the memory of his son, Tom, who was fatally stabbed on Old Street.  Peter had set up the Flavisum Trust to raise awareness and attempt to change young people’s attitudes towards knives and carrying knives.  It took many months of letter writing and wrangling on Peter’s part to secure planning permission from Islington Council.  Due to Peter’s determination this was granted in 2010 and we went ahead and wrote the word CHANGE near to the spot where Tom was killed.
