There will also be live, large scale artwork from street artist and mural painter, Dan Kitchener. Using freehand spray paints and acrylics, Kitchener’s technique to paint all by eye, never using grids, stencils, guides or projectors has meant his skills are sharp, varied, distinctive and unbelievable to watch.
About the live artwork, Dan Kitchener said “I am super excited to be painting a huge scale mural live at All Back to Minehead. Throughout the duration of the weekend , I’ll be creating a 20ft x 20ft mural on a purpose built wall, so watch the artwork evolve over the course of the festival”
