Enfield Enjoys Festival: Art in the Public Realm

For "Enjoy Enfield Summer" festival Artist Hive Studios has commissioned local artist King Owusu to create an art mural connecting visual arts with poetry. Titled 'A Place We Call Home'.  Local creative King Owusu draws inspiration from the world around him. Absorbing references from his family, friends, school and city, his work is reflective of what he perceives around him. Illustration has enabled Owusu to deconstruct the world as he sees it, resembling it from his own perspective. "The world is so different now, I only hope we see more" You can visit the artwork 28-31st August at the The White Horse Pub on Fore Street. For more information on the artist contact us at: artisthivestudios@gmail.com
