The Irvine We Imagine

Artist: James Thistlethwaite

Location: WorkWell, Irvine, CA

Status: In Development

About the Artist:

Thistlethwaite is a British artist living and working in Laguna Beach, CA. His works centralize the role of charcoal and graphite to expand how people understand the medium. His works exhibit the progressive possibilities of charcoal, from small gallery works to large-scale outdoor installations. Thistlethwaite’s work is highly figurative and returns to the earliest of tools to add an emotional narrative to his realistic renderings.

The Project:

AP helped create and negotiate for a record-breaking monumental mural for a new co-working firm in an Orange County neighborhood. AP supported our client by providing a world class artist for the campaign, project managing the implementation of the art installation, delivering digital elements, and supporting a social media campaign to create a new visual landmark in the City of Irvine.
