Survival Techniques is a legal street art project by Naomi Edmondson. Naomi is a painter and street artist. Her work focuses on humanising urban spaces through language, colour and scale. Her paintings promote hope, optimism and relief from issues such as depression, anxiety and urban isolation. Under the project title ‘Survival Techniques’, she paints typographic murals, in urban environments presenting simple actions or statements that aim to bring a little light to someone having a dark day. Paintings are always written using everyday language and each lively colour palette is created in response to the environment. Alongside the paintings she runs workshops where participants create a typographic artwork using their own Survival Technique / coping strategy. As an ultimately democratic space, the street was chosen as the primary canvas for the paintings, aiming to reach and connect together as many people as possible. She won Street Artist of the Year at the global Rise Art Prize, has had solo exhibitions in London and Tokyo and collaborated with Global Street Art to help transform a housing estate in North London. Naomi works on commissions for both public and private sector.
