Watch a time-lapse of the incredible Charlie House painting

At the Curated Aberdeen market in the Bon Accord Centre, a massive mural of Charlie House mascot Charlie Dog has been made.

Chris, who goes by the moniker Reckless Grafitti, told us how he quit his job as an electrician last year to pursue his newfound love.

The artist, who gave his talents for the project, was overjoyed to be invited to help because he has been a long-time fan of Charlie House.

He stated, “It was quite fun to do something big and bold.

“Compared to some of my jobs, like painting the entire back of the Merkland stand for the Dons, it was nice and simple.”

“My dad has been involved with Charlie House for about five years, and I have been to some of their fundraising balls.”

“I was really glad to be asked to help, and of course donated my time free of charge.”

Chris attributes a growing interest in the art form to the influence of Aberdeen’s Nuart festival.

He feels that if the phenomenon had not brought extra eyes to the medium, he would not have been able to transform his talents into a full-time profession.

Painting became a hobby for Chris roughly two years ago, and it became his main source of income in January. He is now fully booked for the next three months and has worked all across the country, from Essex to Elgin.
