I first discovered ‘Big Mother’ by Stik whilst travelling on the Piccadilly line. It was such an eye catching, bright yet simple piece of art which brightened up the surrounding grey landscape, and fast became a highlight of the journey.

Stik’s own story is fascinating – check out an article in the Guardian which features more of Stik’s inspiring work and his own personal life journey.  Click here to read the article.

I came across some beautiful artwork by Debra Cartwright, which I wanted to share. Here is an interesting article about the artist and her debut show in Harlem.

Showcasing 23 of her watercolour prints, Debra examines the imagery of a carefree black woman, sporting natural hairstyles, wearing fabulous clothes and living enviable lifestyles.
