In London, along with an invited group of 30 artists, Sokar Uno visited the Chalk Farm housing estate in Camden to help transform the drab, bricked structures into something a bit more vibrant for the 900 people who live on the ageing London estate.

Using a muted emulsion background for the work, over 4 days the artist used spray and other materials to add further detail to the work.

The artist has painted a man laying on the ground trapped under a chair whilst his hand is placed upon a sand clock.

Using his trademark techniques of bright colour outlines around certain body parts and loads of paint drips – it really does help take the piece to another level.

Lot’s of recent Sokar Uno work has featured statuesque people, arrows, chairs and sand clocks – and most of them are apparent here.

Interestingly here he has decided to feature a lot of flowers and fauna instead of the arrows due to the nature of the work being located with a housing estate.

This certainly has transformed this part of a grey, drab concrete wall into something really eye-catching and special.

It comes complete with a Sokar Uno signature too.
