Art Beats Live Painting Event at Old Spitalfields Market

May 16, 2017 - jo-admin - Uncategorized

Joanna Gilbert was one of 15 artists selected to take part in a charity live interactive art event at Old Spitalfields market on 12th May 2017.

The theme was the ‘Heart of the East End’ and Joanna chose to reference local graffiti within her painting. The finished mixed media piece is 1m x 1m and will be auctioned off via Hearts in Harmony to raise money towards heart research in Great Ormond St Hospital.

Live music added to the atmosphere and Hoxton Radio broadcasted live and interviewed Joanna.

“It was such an enjoyable experience and I loved talking about the creative process with passers-by.”
