London based Choots painted his first mural a year ago while living in Sydney on Bondi Beach. He noticed a small sign on the famous Bondi sea wall that encouraged interested artists to contact the local council if they wanted to paint. Painting on a larger scale rekindled his love for art and his small scale doodles are now evolving into much larger works. Since then he has had other commissions in Sydney and New York, and now completes his first piece in London on the Shoreditch Art Wall.
The plan was for him to initially paint all four panels. But rain, last minute work commitments and a chance encounter with passing graffiti artist 'Unknown', turned the piece into a shared collaboration, with Choots taking the middle panels, and Unknown the outer two.
Choots is currently exploring monochromatic landscapes and doodles incorporating his ever evolving characters with random but balanced compositions. He is currently developing his digital work, with prints and murals and more to come.
