Chef Nic, Leake Street
Chef Nic is a very well known reality TV show in China and he is very much our version of Keith Floyd so lots of travelling mixed with lots of cooking. what was wonderful about this experience was not only meeting the man himself and the elegant actress Maggie Cheung who has made her home here in London but also seeing the huge amount of work that is involved in setting up the whole thing in what I certainly know as being a very unpredictable environment. The result was a crazy mix of doing my own stuff, joining the crew in an impromptu mural and then obviously helping Nic and Maggie with their mural although I have to say I thought they had done a great job. It was a masterclass in posing and camera angles! The next day aka Orbit and myself used the remaining supplies to do a gratitude mural for Chef Nic and I got to do graff lettering for the first time. I have to admit a new found respect for the guys that make Graffiti look so easy. A steady hand and infinite patience is definitely needed. I am as always a work in progress.
