Psychodoodlz Collaboration In Leake Street

Last Saturday we were lucky enough to attend a collaboration from Psychodoodlz in Leake Street. Psychodoodlz comprises Creative Thinkin, Nolijart, Kendog, Fane, Elno and Aly Williamson and is the brainchild of Marc Craig, aka Creative Thinkin.  The ethos behind the project is to form a collective of like minded artists setting to work as a whole to create organically produced spontaneous artwork, there are to be no ego’s in the production of their works, only creativity and collaboration for the greater good of the overall piece.

Starting out nice and early at 9am, the crew set out to mark out an extensive stretch of Leake Street and to paint it full of black and white illustration stretching as far as you can see, and offering so much to take in at every step along its breadth. Over the next six hours, working out to some thirty hours combined work, this is exactly what they did. It was a pleasure to catch this group put together such an elaborate and large-scale mural in Leake Street, all were in fine spirits, merely enjoying painting with one another, generating a nice relaxed atmosphere which infused the days work. What was most impressive was how several of the comprising members had never met before this event, let alone paint with one another, yet this had no bearing on the manner in which each artist worked on and off of each other, a real delight to see.
