Mo Farah Potrait Mosaic

Mo Farh paper mosaic portraitPlease take a look at my latest commission, a portrait of the olympic runner Mo Farah. It’s made from recycled paper and was part of Green Week at South Camden Community School. I did 3 days prep and then spent 2 days working with 8 Somalian students aged 12-14.  It’s now being exhibited in the school reception, for all to admire.

The school contacted his website and received a lovely message back saying he was really touched we were making a portrait of him, he sent some signed photos for the students and he hopes to visit the school to see it after the olympics. He also asked if I could send him a photo of the finished piece, heres hoping he’s pleased!

If you would be interested in commissioning me, please contact me via my website where you can also see all my previous work.
