Colour in Romford - street art installed March 30, 2016 12:00 1 Comment
Colour in Romford aims to support Creatives and engage the local community in the arts by bringing a splash of colour to South Street. The open competition gave the public the opportunity to submit their artwork for large scale commissions with a chance to see their creations brought to life throughout our streets. Focusing on four main sites, entries were encouraged to design a piece that drew inspiration from local history and culture, giving the proposed urban sites an audacious, artistic makeover. Colour in Romford is curated by Made Public .
'New Forest', Brennan & Burch, South Street (station)
We made a few site visits as the work was going up and got behind the scenes shots.
'Monkey', Grant Pearce, South Street (Fiction)
'The Reader', Anika Manuel, The Quadrant
'Loughros Point Revisited', Chris Stevens, King's Arm Yard
