For October’s Hoxton Window Project, we featured Masha Karpushina’s Halloween-inspired artwork. A mix of muted colours like grey blue, mauve and rusty orange, the project included several quirky characters like a crocodile, a headless girl and an odd-looking clown in high heels.
“I used to live close to Hoxton Square so this part of town has quite a few memories. The project sounded like the perfect way to contribute to the local community and what better way than to celebrate one of the funnest holidays of the year: Halloween. The odd and surreal is always great to draw. I loved the whole process. Painting big is pretty special, I’m grateful for the opportunity.”

The project was featured on our windows just in time for Halloween. Each of the drawings is eerie in a sweet way that we hope will get people in the mood to celebrate the Day of the Dead in a fun way!
