Jimmy C is no stranger to Shoreditch, his work can be admired from Brick Lane through to Redchurch Street and as far as Old Street. Spraying Bricks were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the man in action on Bethnal Green Road, creating this portrait piece of a homeless man who Jimmy met on his travels in the city. Utilising his trademark 'drip' painting technique, Spraying Bricks documented the execution of this vibrant and colourful mural.
James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, is most know for his unique techniques in aerosol pointillism. James played a key role in the underground graffiti movement of Australia in the late 80's. With numerous mural commissions and community arts projects under his belt he went on to complete his Masters degree in Visual Arts at the University of South Australia, focusing on urban realist, and figurative oil painting. It was Cochran's love for graffiti and oil paintings which led to the development of his trademark 'drip' and 'scribble' paintings, composed of coloured drips and energetic lines which form vibrant cityscapes and portraits. James has travelled the world with his work, from major cities such as Australia, Berlin, New York and Paris to London, where he now resides. He is a true pioneer.
