Mural for Umbro


Finished, 7am on the last day.


Halfway through.



This is a mural that we were commissioned to paint by Umbro to coincide with the launch of Manchester City's new kit. It took us 5 nights working from 7pm till 6am to complete. We had a cherry picker each to control (like Transformers) and it was loads of fun. It's about 60ft up on the side of a building normally used by the Chinese Christian Church on Oldham Road, Manchester. It is the first bit of work that I've undertaken that is straight advertising and I'm not sure how it sits with me. I worry that Bill Hicks would not be too keen on this direction.
