International Artists Code FC and Jack Haslehurst Participate
in 2012 London Paralympic Games' Shoreditch Wall 'Walk for Truce' Peace Mural


Graphic artist Jack Haslehurst and street artist Code FC will participate in the 'peace mural' project for the London 2012 Paralympics to celebrate Lord Bates' 'Walk for Truce' & Baroness Grey Thompson's' 'Plight of Britain's Disabled' on a major wall in London's fashionable East End. Clients have included End Of The Line, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Beck's Beer & Namco's Soul Calibur V.

Shoreditch, London and Santa Cruz, California,  May 24, 2012:- Today, the London Art & Ad Wall Group announced that London artists Code FC and Jack Haslehurst are to participate in their Shoreditch Art Wall (www.shoreditchartwall.com) 'peace mural' project, to celebrate Lord Michael Bates' 'Walk for Truce' and broadcast Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson's 'Plight of Britain's Disabled' for the London 2012 Paralympics.

Code FC, an established graffiti artist, who holds a degree in Public Art and Design from Chelsea College of Art, will show his newest work, entitled '20:12,' at the Curious Duke Gallery in London next month. Code has been weaving his stenciled works throughout London over the past two years depicting Olympic athletes with camcorders and cameras in place of their heads, to show what a large role the media and corporations now play in the Olympic Games, in direct contrast to the early days of the Olympics.


Jack Haslehurst, also from Chelsea College of Art, has an incredible body of work, which is bright, bold and crisp and intended to convey 'peace and harmony' and bring beauty to urban spaces. Jack will also be designing a special flag for the Olympic period, to signify 'peace and harmony,' which will be presented to the various leaders and dignitaries who Lord Bates met with on his trek, as well as to the UN Security Council and U. S. President, Barak Obama. Limited edition T-shirts will also be available with his designs, to benefit the Paralympics.

Lisa Foster, the US-based spokesperson for the London Art & Ad Wall Group commented, "We are happy to be associated with these talented artists who have agreed to donate their incredible work for this good cause." Continuing, "All the participants share the same message of 'peace' and global awareness."

The Peace Mural:

The two themes that will be the subject of the mural for the London 2012 Paralympics will reflect be Lord Michael Bates' recent solo walk across Europe and Asia, meeting with international leaders along the way, calling for all warring countries to lay down their weapons during the 2012 Olympics, as was the practice during the first Olympic games, and Baroness Grey Thompson's endeavor to call attention to Britain's desperate need for wheelchair facilities for it's disabled. The backdrop of the mural will be the beach scene from 20th Century Fox's 1981 "Chariots of Fire," which is to be re-released by the British Film Institute (BFI) to coincide with the London 2012 Games.
