ONE MAN, ONE BRUSH

TAKING OVER THE KING'S LAND from GILLIAN MCIVER on Vimeo.

What on earth is an Egyptian doing painting the walls of a condemned block of flats in East London? As the city prepares for the 2012 Olympics, the Kingsland social housing estate lies in ruins, synonymous with crime and brutality. Taking Over The King’s Land follows artist Nazir Tanbouli and his self appointed task to take over the condemned housing estate and cover it with art. He battles the endless rain and the bitter weather of the “British summer.” Can art counter the urban atmosphere of deprivation, blight and neglect? Can making such a huge street art project help Naz come to terms with life as an emigré Egyptian in London?
