BANG BANG! I shot you down!

BANG BANG!! I shot you down

BANG BANG!! I shot you down from a slight angle

BANG BANG!! I shot you down from across the room

BANG BANG!! I shot you down the stairs

I shot you down in progress

I shot you down in progress

I shot you down in progress

I shot you down in progress

I shot you down in progress

I shot you down in progress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s nothing like applying paint directly to a wall in someone’s house to cheer you up. Heating, access to drinks and the toilet, no wind to contend with and access to Modern Warfare 3 on the Xbox whilst waiting for emulsion to dry. What more could a humble artist want?

As this was being going directly on the wall in his house we had been through a few iterations of various designs with the client until we finally managed to tweak it till we had something he was happy with. He wanted something impactful as you come into his house and one of the many reference ideas he had given us was the JR piece which had been on the Tate which depicts a man with a camera (although I think it looks like a gun on first glance) so we had gone down that route. As for the text I think I may have, at some point during the design process, been listening to ‘I shot you down’ by the Audio Bullys (below) which features extensive vocal samples from Nancy Sinatra‘s 1966 song ‘Bang Bang’ (although the song was originally written for Cher by Sonny Bono!) I particularly like the way in which the target character always seems to be aiming directly at you (which was obviously intentional…)
