New JimVision / Endoftheline Show-reel

So it’s been mighty snowy, rainy, and cold but as things have been brightening there’s also some great things brewing in the EndoftheLine and Jim Vision camp. After a busy 2017 spent painting walls and working on community projects like the Nomadic Community Gardens & Meeting of Styles, Jim has put together a fresh show-reel

Support an Artist & Help fund Jim Vision’s creative murals

Have you heard of Patreon or wondered how you can support an artist? Now is your chance to learn about both of these things. Patreon allows anyone to to create a sustainable income by running a membership business for fans. As many of you will know pursuing an independent creative business is hard, and doing so in London can be impossible sometimes.

What our founder Jim loves most is painting murals and artwork from the heart that connect with and inspire the viewer. We hope that you will take the time to check out the new Patreon page Jim that has set up. You can be a supporter of this great artist and help him to paint more beautiful works like those we’ve posted below. From as little as $5 (it’s an american site but with a global reach).

See the page here: www.patreon.com/jimvision

Patreon lists it’s key advantages as a way to create a meaningful revenue stream, regain creative freedom and that globally every month over 150 million is distributed. Apparently the average patron pays more each month than Netflix, Spotify and Amazon, which is pretty awesome!

New Mural In Hanbury Street, London from Jim Vision

DSC03496

This year Jim Vision has painted numerous murals. This most recent and huge artwork is located on the side of the Banglatown Cash and Carry, off Hanbury street in the heart of the east end.  Though this is a personally led project Jim was advised by the shopkeeper that a piece that was somehow relevant to the local community would be gratefully received. And positively it’s been a situation where both an artist’s endeavour and the wishes of a wall owner coincide.

So it is that this new work, a piece highlighting man’s destruction of the natural environment, deforestation to make way for mass monoculture crops, is a sobering reminder that we must not forget our connection with the earth.  The piece also features a holi man at it’s centre dividing the beauty of the natural world on the left with the destruction and fire ripping through jungles and rainforest to the right.

As city dwellers we have to survive in this modern, corporate, profit-led world, but it is ever more important for us to strive to protect natural habitats, use more environmentally friendly power sources, lower the consumption of natural resources and to question the ethos and operations behind brands and corporations that want us to buy their products.

Is it too late for the human race to realise it’s full potential? Have profit, money and business overtaken the real human connection, between ourselves, the planet and nature?

Question also why the mainstream media has often portrayed ‘hippies’ as these odd people that seem to care about the earth more than buying new things and being a part of modern culture, and that this should be deemed as ‘strange’ or alien. It helps if your population are made to feel less caring for animals, forests and the natural world. But if you ask anyone if they would like to purchase a product that is made from resources gained through burning natural ancient jungle to make way for rubber plantations and palm oil products and that animals and people were displaced, hurt or destroyed because of this, the answer would be a resounding NO.

It’s time for the masses to wake up and be more responsible.
