Last month Unit 44 hosted Baltimore’s finest, GAIA, at the space up in Newcastle. Stopping off for a bit from his world tour ‘of sorts’, GAIA is presently skipping from nation to country searching for a 2-way dialogue among wall and mural, taking in and echoing the location’s organic narrative.
True to type Gaia produced reflection of housing project, and point of interest for the US artist, The Byker Wall. Shortly right after he developed his second piece of the trip The Swan Lion Upon Africa. Each and every wall tells a story and stands immersed in social, financial, and political relevance if a single is willing to look.
