Naomi Edmonson is a painter and mural artist. Her work focuses on humanizing urban spaces through language, colour and scale. Her paintings promote hope, optimism and relief from issues such as depression, anxiety and urban isolation.
Joshua Coombes started his expressive journey back in 2015. Wherever Josh looked homelessness was rising and he was feeling more helpless each day at the magnitude and scale of this issue. From these negative feelings came the realisation - if he can't solve a problem overnight, that doesn't mean he can't make a positive impact today and make someone smile. It’s not all or nothing.
