Katherine Cromwell, Pet Portraitist

After graduation, she spent a short time in London working for Lawray Architects. “Soon I realised that architecture was not for me and I needed to figure out what to do in life,” she said.

So far, our interview with Miroslav Lucan has been more themed around street art itself. As opposed to his personal involvement in it. That all changes in this next part of our interview with him, however. We find out how he settled on his street artist name, and what sorts of projects he enjoys working on. Plus, has he been responsible for some of the bold pieces of artwork we can see around Bournemouth town centre…?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8FiuC0CfXM A bit further afield than our usual stomping ground for this interview. We took a trip to Southampton, but to interview a Bournemouth-based street artist. By name, Miroslav Lucan. A.K.A. LucanArt... We planned to get an interview with street artist Miroslav Lucan all the way back when we were Humans of Bournemouth.
