Before the successful opening of his exhibition in London, Askew One was in Scotland where he worked his magic on 6 storey building at the Townhead Campus of the City of Glasgow College at 230 Cathedral Street in the city centre.
Askew’s painting is of a close friend, Leilani Momoisea, a NZ journalist, model and blogger of Western Samoan, Scottish, Irish and English descent. She is the epitome of what it is to be born and living in current New Zealand, from a generation of migratory NZ ancestry from both the UK and Polynesia. He painted the mural in layers of colour, the last being in white spraypaint. The effect is incredible and the mural very striking. This piece was painted for the In Common Festival.
