Paint Up cover
Mission There comes a time, where you’re standing, high on the fumes of the city, looking out to the horizon, where your blood boils and you want to be those walls. You want to speak, you want a voice, one that the entire city sees as they walk by every day. That’s what we set out to do. We wanted to be able to disrupt the city, in a peaceful and non-invasive way; in a way which brings the communities some clarity, and transforms stairs into the bridges that connect our streets and alleyways.

By empowering the urban fabric of our city, through paint, through color; we all become the walls, the stairs, and the streets. We all share in each others smiles, laughter, fears, noise and silence.
