This is the first of our new series of street art
to emphasise the importance of reconnecting with our natural environment.
the first time in humanity’s history, more people live in urban
settlements than rurally. Cities and towns occupy less than two percent
of the earth’s surface, but use more than 75 percent of its resources,
with London being the largest urban zone in Europe - the perfect location for
Made completely from reclaimed
materials, and absolutely nothing cut to size - this is our organic
evolutionary process. Highlighting the desperately needed synergy between our rural-urban environment, inspired by the Rural Urban Synthesis Society, we put
this first piece up next to the canal in Hackney Wick, London.
A human reconnection to nature is crucial to ensure a sustainable future. We all have a part to play.

Visualising the beauty and intensity of the dream world. Read Evan's fascinating account below:
"It's about an average man, who lives an average life. He has no
wife and no kids. But one day he lies in his bed and falls
asleep, he finds himself in a completely different world far
more beautiful then anything he has ever seen. He soon figures
out that he can somehow control his surroundings and even
travel through time. Absolutely stunned from the worlds
beauty, he starts to travel all around the world and is just
enjoying the prettiness of his surroundings.
The next day he wakes up in his ugly and gray world..believing
that it was all just some kind of a lucid dream. He goes to
work and does his daily chores, realizing how beautiful it was
in his dream. The next evening as he goes to bed, he wakes to
find himself in exactly the same world he was in the last
time. Overflowing with joy, he starts to run around and breath
the fresh air, which seemed to be absolutely free from all the
exhaust that was in his native land. In his travels, he meets
a girl so pretty and endearing he falls in love at first
sight. He promises her that they will explore the world
together, so they start to travel around. On their journey, he
fell in love with her more and more. It felt so real to him that he began to believe that it was real and with
that, came the great disappointment he woke up and realized that it wasn't reality.
This piece is a first for us. A story told through the eyes of another.
first illustrated Illias' story last March, depicting his
emotions following the love and loss of the man he greatly looked up to - his father. This year Illias informed us that his younger
sister and sole sibling, Enya, wished to tell her story.
When we received Enya's heartfelt
letter, it was so natural and necessary for us to create this for her.
poetic words spoke of the good days; when she is proud of her brother, proud of herself - feeling strong, wise and experienced.
In contrast to the bad days - falling out of
tree into the darkness of the night that surrounds her, unable to swim
against the sea that engulfs her. Quoting Illias' use of 'waldeinsamkeit', she spoke of a moon shining very
brightly between the stars. 'But when the lonely hours strike me, the moon is gone. Sometimes so quickly that I’m still blinded by looking to it I cannot
even see the stars anymore.'
Relating to a line from a song she holds dear - “I climbed a tree to see the world” (To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra), Enya found her way up
that tree after all that she has been through, able to enjoy the breathtaking views that make her
realise that the world and life are still beautiful.
With her precious jewelery box of memories, Enya wishes to choose her own path like a bird flying through the
sky, with her tattoo as her moon, guiding her through those dark nights.

Illias travelled to London with Enya from Belgium, capturing the whole experience wonderfully through the lens for De Morgen newspaper.
Hi guys, We are struggling to get through a mountain of lovely emails...if you are awaiting a reply then please be patient.
We take on very few projects in order to give each design the time and
energy it deserves. For this reason, we sadly cannot accept every
project which interests us. We will
add future dates/plans to the 'about' section of this page, where you
can also find more info on how we work and the answers to many
