Sleeping Rough

'Sleeping Rough' explores issues surrounding homelessness. It aims to tackle misconceptions and inform the public. We observed how many discarded mattresses there were on the streets of Bristol and made a correlation between them and people facing homelessness. Both were once safe in the comfort of a home and now equally cast out and looked down on by society. These ‘Urban Canvases’ gave us the perfect platform to display our illustrations as a form of public art.

The project won a Creative Conscience Gold Award.
