Street Art and Music

A long-standing love of graffiti and street art drew Natasha into street art culture. Spraying walls was something of an expressive outlet for her. Aside from creating her solo street art pieces, Natasha has also worked alongside other artists on their murals. Most recently her portrait was sprayed by renowned street artist David Speed. The piece was painted opposite the entrance to Shoreditch High Street station.

On the four year anniversary of her Mother’s passing, Natasha sprayed a mural in her memory. Featuring a humming bird and bold hibiscus flowers. This is the image used for the single’s cover artwork and was a fitting choice. “My Mother loved flowers” says Natasha. “Flowers only bloom for a short while so you have to appreciate their beauty while they are around. And that’s the bittersweetness of life”.
