The mural, Meggs’ most significant solo undertaking to date, took over ten days to complete. The artwork splices Meggs’ technically layered aesthetic with his animated pop cultural bravura and was a response to FareShare CEO, Marcus Godinho’s brief to encapsulate – in a non literal representation – the energy, responsiveness and innovative nature of how the organisation operates.
“Working with FareShare was a really positive experience for me” said Meggs. “Knowing that not only was I creating one of the largest solo murals I have ever completed, but also helping to beautify and promote such a worthy organisation for such positive, generous people was an incredible feeling. As a street/mural artist we spend a lot of unpaid hours creating our work for the community, so it was awesome to partner with people doing the same thing, but in a different way.”
