MEET THE ARTIST

Meet the Artist SE was a local art campaign in South-East London. The project aimed to introduce local artists and designers to the wider community by showcasing how and where they work and their inspirations. I ran the campaign on three social media platforms for 6 weeks, and the videos needed to be short and punchy.

The project aimed to introduce local artists and designers to the wider community by showcasing how and where they work and what their inspirations are. The campaign ran on three social media platforms, therefore it needed to be short and punchy.

Remi Rough is a well-known and internationally recognised street artist based in Peckham. This short film was shot for the Meet The Artist social media campaign which promoted local art and artists.
