My Name Is Leila

The latest artist to create a piece for our wall is Leila. 

We had been fans of her work since seeing her appear at the Portsmouth Paint Jam last year - an event which brought together Portsmouth street artists to paint hoardings in Winston Churchill Avenue. 

Her piece for the paint jam was 'Moustache Bear' and we loved it. Since then we've been following her work and have seen more pieces go up - a raccoon at the back of Head Barbers in Albert Road and another bear in Make Craft + Kitchen.

She draws animals with accessories and uses one colour to create all the textures and tones that you can see.

Her work looks as amazing in print (and on tshirts - our Alfie is a proud owner of a moustache bear tee) and loads of examples can be found on her website.
