Furrow cafe – Silkscreen wall artwork
I was asked by the Baltic Bakehouse to produce some artwork for the new shop, Furrow, situated on Allerton road. The food served at Furrow is of exceptional quality and its influences span France, Spain and Africa.
My artworks main influence is West African ‘Bogolan’ (Mud cloth) designs, often simple, striking and produced by hand, the aesthetic is confident and bold. I also took influence from ‘Mill stones’, the technology used to traditionally grind flour.
I also produced two smaller prints to accompany the larger piece on the wall.
The final result is on the surface a striking and colourful design, But my aim was to also create a body of work that on closer inspection makes unmistakeable reference to the character of Furrow and its parent company the Baltic Bakehouse.
