  • Description


    I'm Leila (27) from London, England but half Spanish, half Libyan.
    I am an artist film-maker but I also love travelling and painting murals.
    You can see some of my mural work on my workaway profile and video work here: www.leilaziu.com
    I love to travel, connect with new people, eat new food, and I love music...
    My friends would describe me as a warm, fun, love to laugh! generous, hard-working person :)

    I feel I have a lot to offer, happy to share and learn new skills...
    Some things I can share: Graphic Design, Video Editing, Film-making, Photography, Painting, Murals, Computer work, DIY, Organising events, art workshops, art with kids...
    I can also speak Spanish and French, not fluent yet but ok.

    I have met some great friends through Workaway and love the exchange... looking forward to my next trip!

I designed the venues signs for 2 music festivals in Croatia. Here are some images of the process from designing to constructing and painting them with a great team of volunteers.
A sign I designed for the 'Harbour' 'Dockside' and 'Boat Parties' area of a music festival that was also a viewing platform to the main stage. Croatia.
A sign I designed site specific for the Beach area of a music festival in Croatia.
Painting a mural of the letter Z for 'The Font Bar' in Manchester, UK.
I designed and painted these seats that fit around trees at Dimensions Festivals in Croatia.
Putting some patterns on this wall in an old factory in London, UK.
