Oh my god! Last night was the first post lockdown gig we’ve been to and we waited for this one for years, what a moment, literally we won’t ever forget it. and his orchestra and band partly from the Ukraine were incredible, it was emotional, so inspiring, spine tingling. I think the most amazing gig we’ve ever been to!

, famed for creating street murals with a fine-art approach, builds a special bond with Patrick, a personal trainer from south London.
Patrick was photographed carrying an injured English Defence League member to safety during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in 2020 and was propelled into the media spotlight both here and around the world. This powerful image and act of kindness was hailed as a symbol of unity and humanity.
Armed with spray cans and oil paint, Dale learns more about the man behind the headlines and aims to use his unique skill and vision to create a portrait that captures the real Patrick.
