Cambridge artist Tim Gresham returns to bring colour to Hope Street Yard
A colourful abstract mural has been painted in Hope Street Yard in Cambridge by artist Tim Gresham – aka Penfold (a reference to Danger Mouse and his nickname at school).
Originally from Cambridge but resident in Bristol for nine years, Tim started the mural at 11am on Monday (June 13) and had finished it by 3pm.
He reveals that he received a random email from someone who had seen a couple of garage doors he had painted about 12 or 13 years ago at the back of Hope Street Yard asking him to do it.
“It’s nice to come back and do things for the city,” says Tim, who started on his artistic journey spraying graffiti at around the age of 11, moving on to painting murals at the age of 18.
Always busy, Tim also has a solo exhibition coming up in September at the AKA Gallery. Follow him at bit.ly/39mRI38.
