Fifteen Gets Inked: a piece of art

After a week of late nights (or early mornings, depends how you look at it!), Fifteen has been well and truly inked. Using a projector and his artistic skill Ben Allen has created a truly individual piece of artwork in the restaurant using spray cans and painting free hand. Ben Allen apprentice 2

Inspired by tattoos, the artwork incorporates traditional tattoo artwork such as swallows, hearts, roses and anchors; all of which resonate with our apprentices and staff, many of them having tattoos themselves. Ben felt that they were appropriate also for their meaning, particularly the swallows which are linked with sailors and representative of love and care and affection towards family and friends.

The words carefully selected by the Foundation team adorn the wall also describing feelings and emotions associated with the Apprenticeship Programme and cleverly link with the images of past apprentices, describing their journey. The images left to right (if you were looking at the artwork), depict the journey of an apprentice from college, to kitchen, to sourcing trips, to time spent with Jamie and finally graduation.

The new artwork has completely transformed the restaurant and puts the Apprentice Programme back on the map, reminding everyone what we’re all about – ‘not just another restaurant’.
