Johnny Morris who owns the World Fossils shop in St Nicholas Market Bristol commissioned me to paint an 8 metre mural around his shop. The design portrays various species from the fossil record, it’s a glimpse of life on earth from the last 600 million years.

I had to do a lot of research to depict the changing flora, fauna and climate over such a big stretch of time. You’ll notice the timeline along the top of the boards.

I painted these boards in my studio using acrylic paint and spraycans:
