And it's turning out to be a year none of us will ever forget...

We are working with artist Barry Cawston on a book and exhibition of his recent documentary photographs of Banksy's Dismaland and Weston Super Mare. More here:
Also see our comment for BBC (September 2015) on the impact of Banksy's Dismaland.
In June 2016, We Are Europe asked us to source a respected grafitti crew for a mural, to be a lynchpin image for their campaign. We chose the uber-talented Paintsmiths who we have worked with in the past. This amazing 15' high mural and viral, international coverage, has received more than 900,000,000 online hits.
The image, entitled 'Kiss of Death' is a take-off of the famous 1990 Berlin wall mural by Dmitri Vrubel depicting Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker in a fraternal embrace, captured in a photo taken during the 30th anniversary celebrations of the foundation of the German Democratic Republic in 1979.
In July 2016, the Kiss of Death image was taken up by the media again when new PM Theresa May made Boris Johnson the UK's Foreign Secretary.
