05 August 2014

The Fan Carpet's Maria Evrenos took to West India Quays for the Blackwood special 3D street art event Last week to talk to first time feature director Adam Wimpenny, his lead actress Sophia Myles and phenomenal 3D Street Artist and screenwriter Joe Hill.

At 8.30pm on Wednesday 30th July Joe Hill, renowned pavement artist, will be unveiling his latest work, a unique, specially commissioned piece of 3D, trompe l’oeil, anamorphic street artwork based around the new British feature film ‘BLACKWOOD’.



Joe created the installation at West India Quay, adjacent to Canary Wharf, it includes a world first that will light up in the dark revealing a change of image.  This spectacular piece of art is absolutely huge and will welcome inter-action by the public, no doubt creating a massive stir.  Joe’s most recent work was displayed at the Olympic Park to celebrate the two year anniversary of the 2012 Games but the ‘BLACKWOOD’ piece is set to put that in the shade with its ambition and size, the likes of which has never before been seen in the UK.





About Blackwood
Having recovered from a shattering emotional breakdown, college professor Ben Marshall relocates to the countryside with his wife and young son, hoping for a fresh start. He has a teaching job lined up and a new home to move into; things finally look to be going Ben’s way. Until, that is, he starts to feel that something isn’t quite right in the house. Finding himself plagued by spectral visions, Ben becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a local mystery that appears to be putting the lives of his family in danger. Delivering good old-fashioned scares alongside a host of innovative ideas, this atmospheric chiller from newcomer Adam Wimpenny is a smart revision of the traditional English ghost story. With a compelling family drama at its core, the supernatural horrors of Blackwood are handled with an intelligence that maintains credibility as it twists and turns its way to a startling conclusion.

Blackwood is out now and also features Ed Stoppard, Russell Tovey, Greg Wise and Paul Kaye.
