Create Not Destroy specialises Mural Art \Videography\Photography\Design
With a team of talented and gifted creatives with style and flare and a passion for teaching and sharing our expertise.
At Create Not Destroy we have a keen interest in working on genuine community related art based projects an creative workshops with the youth and the elderly and taking there ideas and experience and creating full sized mural art for the world to see.
We believe that great creativity often is the result of team effort and we see the value in working closely with our clients to realise their vision and ideas. We can't promise or guarantee that art will change minds but as artists we believe we should use our artwork to bring forward a message of hope, change and to challenge social narratives, and where we can use it to represent the unheard and unseen.
