Hares to me a wise.. Dreamlike animals.. They symbolise many things and are very curious.. And I think they have a stark contrast to the seaside... Out of place.

I wanted to paint a psychedelic sunset seascape, showing some iconic parts of Hastings; the pier in full swing with a band playing, bright coloured lights illuminating above and into the stars. A fishing boat, the "Anne-Marie" in the foreground which I've added as a tribute to my parents - my Dad is the man on it, the boat named after my Mum. I've lived in Hastings all my life and it made sense to paint it. I wanted to add some of my favourite aspects of Hastings and its history to the mural; pirate day, the sea, the fisherman, live music. I enjoy painting things that seem otherworldly and I've recently completed an octopus mural in my home, so I painted this mural in a similar style using bright colours and breaking away from naturalism. I wanted to create more of a sense of a dream state, as Hastings is known for being different and quirky: we have Jack in the Green, pirate day, bonfires, drummers, artists. I thought a traditional seascape wouldn't do the town justice when the town is made of bright, artistic people who daydream and don't take themselves too seriously.

I wanted to create a day dream doodle of all things connected to a day at the seaside, things that all ages can relate too, inspired what I see every day in St Leonards

My idea is to paint a scene featuring exotic animals, including monkeys and birds. This is for three reasons. 1. During lockdown I have found myself daydreaming about the exotic places and animals that I can see after the lockdown is over. 2. I enjoy painting these unusual and expressive animals. 3. I can make the piece really colourful and somewhat surrealist adding to the dimension of imagination/daydreaming.

My piece entitled 'No Signal', is intended as a whimsical twist on post-lockdown life, as (hopefully) we turn our backs on our televisions (tablets/laptops etc) and enjoy the "real" and beautiful view of our lovely coast. I chose the TV as it's roots are in Hastings, and I went for an older style set to invoke nostalgia and to demonstrate the constant progression of technology. I feel that the mural would offer a fun photo opportunity and also wonder how younger people will react to this pre-flatscreen monolith! www.facebook.com/graphiquedivine

I took the theme "Day dreaming" quite literally by showing one of my main characters, Kratos the Doberman, riding with some of his crew at sunset down to the end of Hastings pier. In my art narrative, I have created my own bike club called the "Blood Hounds". They are a pack of dog outlaws best known for their loyalty and strength as a group. I believe these guys are perfect for this mural due to the huge motorbike scene, and through the much needed friend support over the last year. I too just want to ride and feel free with my mates again. "https://linktr.ee/alfchabilan"

During the pandemic we have been encouraged to keep our space from each other. As a result of that many lives have been saved and an unfortunate amount lost, one of those being my uncle. He was my inspiration for this design as he loved space and i thought it’d be a good way for my family to remember him and be closer to him; especially as it’s by the sea and he volunteered as a coastguard. I’m a gcse art student and the work i have is in my art book kept at school

My idea was that there's a noble girl standing peacefully while watching the sunset. Nature can be so breathtaking and at times we forget to admire the beauty. As the day comes to the end, there's many things and opportunities ahead of us all. Difficult days that pass make us stronger. Also, a little note. Four tiny birds that are flying in the sky represent freedom that awaits her, one faithful day...

The mural would be inspired by a series of 'dreamwork' paintings that we have been collaborating on for the last year and which take a self-portrait image of Eden in her Jack-in-the Green head garland as a starting point. Recurring themes of flowers, mouths, teeth, words, fish, stars bubbles and wood grain would be explored. The attached images would provide context and inspiration for the mural but we would respond to the site specific constraints. http://www.andrewkotting.com/eden/eden.html

My take on the seaside and St Leonards growing up has always been bright vibrant colours and bold shapes, my work focuses on colour and geometry and I love to combine the two to make abstract pieces that bring fun and enjoyment into a physical space.

Reflections. During the pandemic, the seafront has been a space for reflection for many of us. I'd like to make a mosaic mural of mirror reflecting the sky and the sea and the beach in front. The mosaic would be made of upcycled broken mirrors and be placed in vertical strips like Bottle Alley. The pieces will be individual tesserae of mirror and cover the wall.

I am an experienced site-specific live/installation artist. I often sit on these benches in the sun trap booths and look out to sea. When the sea is really rough after a storm sometimes the wooden benches further up the beach become submerged in shingle from the beach. I have fantasized about the shifting shingle reaching up and covering over the booths. I think it would be fun to actually cover the surrounds of the booths with shingle. If I am not allowed to take it from the beach I would buy the gardener's Nordic shingle and using sand or other interesting coloured outdoor tiling cement i.e: Rock-tite 3 stage outdoor primer, mortar and grout, I would arrange the stones into the surrounding concrete. creating a lovely textured surface made from the environment that the bench inhabits. I feel that this would be in keeping with Sidney Little's cement dream, echoing the treatment of glass bottle pieces in bottle alley. As well as this, I would imagine the mural will be very hard-wearing.

"My personal artwork is all based around: cracked mosaic tile shapes in abstract compositions and uplifting colours. This image is a sketch submission is based on colourful flowers in bloom and dreaming of bright summer days. This should be a nice visual to brighten up the area. It’s very cheerful and positive."

Marrying the idea of kids enjoying pirate day with the rainbow, which symbolises the very inclusive nature of the town. The final piece will be a stenciled spray paint job..

For the final piece of the Hastings & St Leonards Big ADVENTURE I really wanted to create a painted piece that inspired some positivity for the future. The word HOPE seemed to be very appropriate for the current times we are living in, so I made large painted boards, one for each letter to be displayed on the gates of Hastings Pier. The response was really positive and the work went on to be featured in the window of Afri-Co-Lab for Jan, Feb and will be taken down in March. I would love for this to have an onward life and become a permanent installation. The original painting was monochrome, but the new design for this mural is very colourful, to reflect this wonderful town that we live in. Colourful, vibrant, creative and hopeful.
