Amnesty International Live Paint

Amnesty International Live Paint from Recoat on Vimeo.

On the 7th of August 2010, a group of Recoat artists came together to create a collaborative mural at the C Venues during the Edinburgh Festival. The artists involved were Lyken, Derm, Conzo, Elph, Rekor and Syrkus.
We were commissioned by Amnesty International to paint the piece, which depicts themes surrounding the 88 Generation Students of Burma. You can read more about them, the project and Amnesty's work here and see photos of the event here.
The artists also each created paintings that explore and illustrate themes surrounding freedom of speech and specific AI cases. These paintings are also on show at the C Venues. The work will now be displayed untill 30th August 2010.
You can hear a short interview with Syrkus and Graeme from Amnesty on BBC Scotland here, its on at 1:18:00.
Was a quality project and was a huge honour to be involved.
