We’ve been working with art critic and curator Edward Lucie-Smith recently. See Edward in our new film A Portrait of John W. Mills. Edward also featured in our Type 1 Zealotry Zavier Ellis film, produced for iBook.
In A Portrait of John W. Mills, Kingstreetimages explores the stories behind some of the monumental public works by John W.

Includes contributions from Art Critic and Curator Edward Lucie-Smith.
