The Artship, painted by MASH Designs (Martin Schlick) fully funded by KCA
In January 2017 KCA supported MashDesigns to paint the ART SHIP next to the
tourist information centre. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate being given such a great opportunity. I can truly say, looking back now, that this has been a real stepping stone. The professional fee that I received, meant that I was able to devote a significant amount of time to complete the artwork, which helped me to develop my skill. Also being given a lot of space for concept interpretation, I was given the opportunity to share my individual style with the public.
The ART SHIP was followed by the tentacle wall on Barry Street, which was my
largest commission to this date. Which has led to workshops, an exhibition and many other commissions in the wider region.
Thank you KCA, for the valuable work that you do in our community and for
supporting me and setting the foundation for an exciting journey in the world of art.
