Go Go Gorillas: The Norwich Art Trail 2013

This year I am fortunate enough to have three of my designs sponsored and commissioned by local Norfolk organisations: Norwich B.I.D'S, Think Mobile Media and the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News. It was great to have the opportunity to paint on life size gorilla sculptures! Here's some great snaps of those creatures out there in Norwich on the art trail right now thanks to everyone who continues to post pictures to facebook and twitter, its always great to see what impact they are having on the local community! Don't forget I also do commission murals so please check out my website for more details!

The GoGoGorillas outdoor art trail has been officially launched and the 53 life-sized creations are on show at different locations around the city. You will be able to explore the trail and see how many spectacular gorillas you can find. Each gorilla has been decorated in a variety of colourful and exciting artwork; produced by professional artists, schools and community groups.

Just want to give a massive shout out to Martin Green from Break Charity. Martin has single-handedly set up the entire Gorilla art trail in Norwich from start to finish. He has helped out 100's of artists, community groups and sponsors. With 53 final designs being taken forward, he has secured the locations for the gorillas, managed all the launch events and publicity not to mention delivering the sponsorship packs and artist application packs. He has been tweeting away everyday to keep this process exciting, visual and in the media for everyone to share and appreciate and is not afraid to haul around a gorilla on a lorry, on a train and in a shopping mall! He even does the odd bit of varnishing gorillas and helping out all the artists involved. He has also managed the process for the App, populating all the data, setting the design and working along side think mobile to bring all the components together.

This October 3rd the gorillas are off to the auction at the Forum in Norwich, a ticketed event to see the trail come to an end and raise money for Break Charity. Martin Green the Gorilla man of Norwich, I'm sure is onto good things. Huge well done, this man deserves a medal in logistics! Congrats!
