We are so incredibly excited to share with you this epic project by our artist Elena Gumeniuk who was commissioned by BBC Creative to create two portraits for BBC Three and their newly launched TV series Rap Game UK.
The first piece is a portrait of the incredible Manchester based Lady Ice. Elena was asked to create a few colour versions of this piece as she looked so good in these bright colours! This piece was part of extensive advertising across the UK, which you can see below :)
The second piece elena created is a group portrait of all the contestants, which was then painted as a mural in Manchester, UK by the incredible team at End Of The Line - A first for both Roar and Elena to see her work at such an awesome and huge scale! The portrait can be seen in a vivid green, and bright yellow!
