The Wall Project
Rich Mix and Havana Club are calling on amateur or professional artists to submit designs for a specially commissioned wall art project, taking place over the next twelve months at the Shoreditch cultural hotspot, Rich Mix.
The art competition includes three commissions launched by three live events, hosted in conjunction with the start of Rich Mix’s new seasons.
Artist Remi/Rough launched the Havana Club Wall Project with his interpretation and vision of the values that make Havana so unique. The celebrated urban artist was specially commissioned to design and paint an interior wall that runs the entire length of the Rich Mix events space.
Artists are invited to submit their entries to panel of experts, led by Remi/Rough, who will select two winning designs to feature on the Rich Mix interior wall throughout the year. “The design must embody the unique and inspiring attitude that reflects the true values of the Cuban capital – humanity, spontaneity and creativity, this refreshing attitude highlighting the informality, passion and generosity of the people of Havana.”
Although I have my doubts that there is any such thing as a “reflection of the true values of the Cuban capital” I believe this to be a good opportunity for every artist that feels inclined to make a feel-good wall piece.
Design sketches must be submitted to Rich Mix (firstname.lastname@example.org) as a jpg before March 21. Check their website for more info.
