The artist Tod Hanson was commissioned to create a new piece of public art for the entranceway and staircase of The Storey building. He produced brightly coloured decorative paintings on the walls and ceilings which both echo the historic architecture and bring it up to date.
Tod gave this talk about the development of the piece, and how it relates to his previous work. He described and illustrated his influences including comics, punk, space-travel, rococo architecture, skate-board parks, Gilray, Cruickshank, fairgrounds, and his parents’ house.
