Shy Bains get nowt – I was inspired by the geordies saying ‘Shy bans get nowt’ which means shy babies get nothing. You don’t ask, you don’t get. Which was told to me on a bus by one of the locals. So from that line i created the mural as a response to it.
Artist Magda Boreyz was working on another part of the venue and once we had finished our walls collaborated together to create the final wall. She drew the many armed woman and i did everything else. Great fun!
