Our artists all worked tirelessly to represent #THE22000, painting walls with their art across London.
Zabou is a French street artist based in London, who paints huge portraits which capture the spirit and emotion of her subjects. She has amassed thousands of followers on social media, worked all over the world and has exhibited work at the Saatchi Gallery several times. We love her work – and what she did with the project, painting a large portrait of Becca, a young person who went from being homeless to representing England in the Homeless World Cup. Her art can be found in Gaskin Street, Islington N1.
Tizer is a London-based graffiti artist. A legend in the graffiti world, Tizer has been a graffiti artist since the late 80s and has painted walls across London and the world, winning awards and acclaim for his distinctive style. He has a real passion for our work, as is currently a mentor for young people in London as well as teaching graffiti across the UK. Tizer focuses on the 22000 statistic in his amazing mural, representing #THE22000 young people that face homelessness this Christmas. This was painted in Waterloo, on Leake Street.
Jeba is a London-born-and-raised graffiti artist and graphic designer, who has been painting walls since his teenage years. His work combines old school hip hop, graphic design and animation into pieces that have an energy of their own. Now based in Barcelona, Jeba maintains a love for his home-town, London and is passionate about helping young people in London and across the UK. We love his colourful and eye-catching graffiti art, incorporating our campaign silhouette, which he painted in Mile End Skatepark.
Bec Dennison, AKA Bullet on a String is a Melbourne-born, London-based artist, illustrator and graphic designer. She works all across the UK on design projects, as well as creating bespoke murals and her own artwork. She has worked with brands such as New Look and Diesel UK, and we are very lucky to be the latest organisation to collaborate with her. Her work on this project blew us away – capturing the loneliness and loss of self-esteem that homeless young people can feel. Her work was painted in Waterloo, on Leake Street.
If you agree that 22,000 young people shouldn't be facing homelessness this Christmas - join our artists and fight back, by adding your name to our campaign now.
Help us demand that the next government end youth homelessness - for good.
We know that too often the voices of young people don’t make the headlines. We chose to collaborate with artists with a passion for our work, on sites across London, to cut through the noise and make sure #THE22000 are heard.
