Thank you to both Illiyan and Ina for generously sharing their wall space!
When you are next in Barking and dying for a quiet place to put your feet up while sipping a great cup of espresso with just the right amount of crema, then head to Ezo Bistro located within the station.
Inspired by the artwork they saw hanging in one of our partner Cafes in north London, and connected with the cause behind the initiative, Iliyan and Ina decided to be a part of Cafe Art's growing family of big-hearted cafe owners. So they contacted us to ask if we would like to help decorate their new cafe with some beautiful artworks. Would we ever say no to that???
Armed with works of art from artists representing most of London's homelessness organisations, we headed to the cafe and hung them. Not only that, they wanted a section of their wall painted with a simple mural where the daily menu will be written. Nothing is too tall an order at Cafe Art.
We called upon Zin, an inspiring and talented young artist, who completed the job in under an hour. And this is what the owners have to say, "We were really happy with Zen's painting, he made our coffee shop look more warm and cozy, he is a very nice guy and a professional artist, we wish all the best to him and all the Cafe Art artists!
So do drop in to say hi to both Illiyan and Ina, and enjoy the great artwork on display. Thank you once again, Ina and Illiyan!
Ssh .... no barking! The artist is at work.
