Wahaca, the award winning restaurant, is looking for a Graffiti/ Street artist to fill a huge space (over 28m2) in its new site in Canary Wharf, opening October 2009.
Both street artists Oliver Shaw and Nuria, whose work exhibited at the Tate Modern last year have worked with Wahaca in the past and we are looking for an equally exciting artist to take over our site and leave their own particular mark.
Wahaca commissions sight specific pieces focusing on street and environmental art (visit their website for more information on artists they have worked with www.wahaca.co.uk and is willing to pay up to £4,000 for this particular commission (excluding materials).
To win: They need to see a piece of work by the artist that shows their style would be in fitting with Wahacas. (It might be an idea to visit the site in Covent Garden (66 Chandos Place, WC2N 4HG) or White City (Westfield, Southern Terrace, W12 7GB) to get a feel for what Wahaca is about).
All entries will be posted onto their blog and readers will be asked to judge their favourite. All entries must be submitted by the 23rd August and a winner will be announced at the beginning of September. Site visits can then be arranged with installation expected mid October. The artists work will also feature in our Wahaca paper OLA London of which 30,000 are printed and distributed as well as appear in materials/ websites associated with the competition and Wahaca.
To enter email email@example.com with a picture of your work that best describes your style and please attach in no more than a 100 words an overview of what inspires you as well as any website or further useful information about you. If you have further questions please call Mark on 07748148323.
