Fiver, aka Henry Barnes, creates masterpiece for global event
A street artist got out his spray cans to create a massive mural in honour of World Autism Awareness Week.
Henry Barnes, aka Fiver, painted hoardings outside the headquarters of the National Autistic Society, in City Road, Finsbury, on March 30.
Mr Barnes, who is the charity’s area policy and participation officer, used his talents to illustrate the words Stand Out For Autism.
He said: “I’m really excited to be able to use my creative skills to produce something eye catching for the hundreds of people who use the busy City Road. It’s an ideal spot to showcase our awareness week message.

“I’ll be starting the mural around midday and my goal, if the rain doesn’t scupper my plans, is to have it finished by 4pm just in time to grab the attention of commuters leaving their colleges and offices for the day.”
World Autism Awareness Week is designed to raise awareness of autism, as well as funds to help support people living with the lifelong condition across the UK.
