The Concept Of Running Paint
Taking part in a sporting event like a marathon can be a life-changing experience, whether the reason for taking part is for the challenge, a life goal, for the love of it, to fundraise or in a loved one's memory. The reason for taking part maybe different but with the training, dedication, willingness and the feelings of achievement, are all very recognisable and relatable throughout the running communities and it is this I wish to reflect back through the artworks and the project Running Paint.
behind running paint
Running Paint is founded and designed by Nicholas Efstathiou. Graduating from University Of East London with a degree in Graphic Art & Animation, Nick found he trade as an artist and designer. Nick now combines two inspiring subjects, art and design with running, through this Running Paint was born.
"I created Running Paint, a business to inspire people to run whilst raising money for my running charities. What draws me to long distance running isn’t to be the fittest or the best but to reach my goals and overcome doubt. I believe anyone can exercise and I wish to inspire you and others through my art, to take to the streets, parks, mountains."
