Thoughts @ Night • London 2015 Artist - James Straffon. Installed September 2015

In September 2015, TAG artist James Straffon was commissioned to decorate a Sebestons upright piano. As inspiration he looked to Chopin. And proved not all street art is on the street...

"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

Between 1827 and 1846, Frédéric Chopin wrote 21 pieces of music for the solo piano - his Nocturnes series. One of these was Nocturne No. 2 in E flat Major, also known as 'Thoughts At Night'.
