Golden Grenades

Episode 34: ATM Street Art

In this episode Kit is joined by ATM, a street artist who paints urban walls with birds threatened with extinction. He has a lifelong love of nature, having grown up surrounded by birds in an abundance which is now a distant memory. He has a particular connection to their songs, calls and the wild spaces they inhabit. His giant wildlife murals fill walls across London to Bristol and on to Poland and Norway. By aiming to express the unique character and energy of each creature he paints, he wishes to communicate their value and importance, and the need to ensure their survival.

ATM chats to Kit about his work and the 5 bird species that mean the most to him.

You can buy his wonderful work or commission him on his website shop here

Golden Grenades Collective are delighted to team up with ATM to produce our first collaborative T-shirts, Biodiversity Before Profit. He has produced a series of paintings on bank notes to highlight bird species whose population declines are related to the impact of man, including the change in farming practices to maximise profits. Two of these artworks featuring a lapwing and kestrel are now available as T-shirts, in both standard men’s/unisex and women’s scoop neck styles here
