Throughout the course of Saturday Street Artist Airborne Mark was at work alongside Irony on a project in Nelson Dock, London’s last remaining dry dock, making for one of the most unusual settings in which we here have seen Street Art created and also certainly offering the one of the best scenic views to us in the process.
For the occasion and the setting Airborne Mark opted to go with an apt piece inspired by the locale, namely a origami ship, based on a reference model created by Airborne Mark himself before hand, which is based on a design by Patricia Crawford. The works were created on some boards that will be hung in the dry dock as part of a set of some five works in total and will be a part of the plans by the adjoining hotel to turn this listed area into an events location.
The reference model, based on Patricia Crawford’s design from which Airborne Mark was working, folded from a single sheet of paper.

The most impressive finished work from Airborne Mark, after two days working on the reference model and one day painting, a job exceptionally well done in his trademark styling, pure Origami Riots. We love the metallic rusted effect used in the skyline background, really makes the origami ship and accompanying origami seagulls standout.
