Seven Red Project was completed in one day, 2nd May with a superb team of painters in the Avenue Popova (Mall Aisberg), centre of Perm with three extra panels using the 'interval' design element and adapting to some panels being upside down. Excellent acrylic paint with good saturation means the 42 panel wall carries a vibrant long story for Perm. Click on the title above for full set of images.

Special project / campaign with a codename «JAM SESSION» – during one day all of the authors and volunteers will go out and paint the longest fence this year - the fence around the Hippodrome. Total length of the mural will be 835 meters (350 sections) - a new Guinness record (previous was 550 meters - the wall around the mall in a town in Malaysia), each author will be granted 12 sections of fence. Each project will be connected / switched in the design of the colleague’s / neighbor’s project (eg, silhouette completion of your "piece" on the left and right, that your co-worker could "catch" or add their images to yours) - we are planning that this huge mural will be implemented as a game - sort of large-scale visual bouts-rimés. To make such a large collective work, we are also proposing to limit the palette with any 2 colors (color, hue, tint on your taste) and prepare graphically (without gradients, and additional colors) the solution to your visual ideas.

New gouache works are currently being created. These paper and water based paints are all approximately 25 x 50 cm (image size). They are works in their own right rather than a study for or after a particular painting. Materials include Lucas and Windsor and Newton Gouache on Royal Watercolour Society 250g paper.
