This summer we’ve partnered with the charity Bee Friendly Trust to raise awareness of the importance of protecting urban bees. We’ve even got a colony of our own up on the rooftops at The Yards, so it’s a cause close to our hearts.
In order to celebrate these hard-working pollinators, we’ve enlisted the help of four amazing artists to create a trail of bold bee-inspired installations.
3D illustrator Thomas Burden created one of these installations for The Yards & The Bees, we caught up with him to find out more about his influences and inspirations.
