‘Survival Techniques’, an exhibition of paintings and screenprints of
positive and uplifting statements and actions that aim to bring a little
light to people having a dark day.


Designer Naomi Edmondson began legal street art project ‘Survival Techniques’ almost 2 years ago after a period of feeling low. The paintings aim to promote hope and optimism. “It started as a list I made for myself to remind me what to do when I was feeling really low: things that always made me feel a bit better” says Naomi, “They were always super simple things like ‘Talk to someone, anyone, about anything’ which came from me chatting to the guy in my local shop for a few minutes. I realised that I would leave the
shop feeling much more a part of the world again”.

After finding that friends found similar ‘Survival Techniques’ worked for them, Naomi began to think about ways of sharing the list, and after seeing a local street artist at work in East London, she decided that the street would be the best, most democratic place to share them.
The first wall she painted was “Hide Less Chat More” - words from a friend with whom she first shared her Survival Techniques list. She now has many paintings spread across London.

The exhibition, which runs for three weeks, is Naomi’s first solo exhibition and will show
both original paintings and limited edition screenprints of her work.

The exhibition coincides with World Mental Health Day on Tuesday October 10th, and
10% of all money raised by the exhibition will go to the Rethink Mental Illness charity.
