The Hoxton Window Project features different artists on a monthly basis. The canvas: production company UNIT9’s four huge windows overlooking Hoxton Square. This month, the office windows featured the super talented Jacob Everett, a multimedia artist and illustrator based in south London.
To celebrate the office’s East London location, Jacob paid tribute to “The Holy Trinity” of Grime. His detailed, hand drawn illustrations of Wiley, Skepta and Dizzie Rascal look out onto the square as the Patron Saints of the East End.
“The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of east London is Grime music. It’s London’s very own sound that has transformed from the days of pirate radio and underground raves to critical acclaim and international recognition over the last 15 years. When I was asked to create a piece for UNIT9’s Hoxton Window Project, I thought what better way than to turn the windows into stained glass monuments to the founding fathers of Grime. The Holy Trinity of Wiley, Skepta and Dizzee Rascal.” – Jacob Everett
