Hitchcock mural at Mirth, Marvel & Maud

In August 2016 I was commissioned to design and paint a mural for a box fence in the beer garden of Mirth, Marvel & Maud, a bar which is situated inside the Grade II listed former Granada/EMD cinema on Hoe Street in Walthamstow.

Because of the cinema connections I opted for a film themed mural design. As Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favourite film directors, and he was born just down the road in Leytonstone, Hitchcock's films were the perfect inspiration for a mural design.

The lady on the door next to the box fence is a recreation of an usherette from a 1938 Granada cinema programme(though the crow is a 2016 addition!)
