At this years Lindfield Arts Festival there will be a Cellophane Live Art Installation outside Abbott’s chemist, in the High Street on 21st September. Sarah Gillings is a an award-winning multimedia and street artist who will create a wonderful street art piece using Cellograff. Cellograff is a technique where cellophane is stretched between any available support making paint ready surfaces, in this case Lindfield’s iconic Lime trees!
Cellograff provides the artist the freedom to create murals in a variety of new locations without the restriction of needing a wall. The translucent nature of the plastic adds a fascinating layer of visual complexity to the mural. Sarah’s Cellograff interventions typically involve inserting British wildlife into unexpected settings.
So come along and watch Sarah create a wonderful street art piece using just spray paint and cellophane wrapped around two trees!
This event is from 10:00am to 4:30pm on September 21 on Lindfield High Street
