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

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"

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'm thinking if doing something colourful and fun to catch peoples eye, something unique that you wouldn't find anywhere else.

The image is a composition of dozens and dozens of heads, reminiscent of a group video call. Is this a real call or a memory of a conference? or are these people the ones who I miss the most as I don’t get to see my friends and family much these days? People exist in reality but they also occupy a space in your mind, heart and dreams and this artwork is a representation of all those special people.

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.

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

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...
