Woodcock Park Mural

Category: Community Murals / Tag:  

We have just completed a huge mural in Woodcock Park, Brent, working with a group of sixth form students from St Gregory’s Catholic College. The money was funded by local councillors and supported by the friends of the park. The wall was a real eyesore and the transformation is incridible. The locals love the new mural which depicts the park and its wildlife, flaura and fauna in a fun and uplifting way.

St Matthew’s Primary School Murals

Category: Community Murals / Tag:  

The team have just completed 3 large works of art at St Matthew’s Primary School,  transforming the schools entrance.

on our arrival we spent the day talking to the pupils about our murals and how they are created, we visited the walls to be painted and discussed how we can make them more inviting and exciting..

we spoke about the schools class names and how they are all named after animals and plants from around the united kingdom, it was also mentioned that the schools 5 values where to be represented within the designs (support, positive relationships, achievement and success, coping skills and confidence) also the schools motto “we are a Happy Centred School”
other considerations where the schools owl logo along with the uniform colours and the schools sports.

from this we designed 3 murals

1. landscape/wildlife mural incorporating as many of the animals and plants of the class names
with the school motto very large and centred.

2. sports wall / cricket, dodge ball, football, netball.

3. owl wall / based on the school logo with a wise owl in there nest with 3 young owls in school jumpers representing the pupils being taught and cared for.

throughout  the different stages the pupils came out and watched the murals take shape and asked us many questions about what we where doing and how parts of the mural where created.

overall the project has inspired and brightened a space for all to enjoy.

here are photos of the murals:

3D floor mural in Baku, Azerbaijan

Category: Events, Graffiti Art Murals, NEWS / Tag:  

The Positive arts team had the pleasure of being invited to Baku in Azerbaijan to create a huge 3-d floor mural for the IDEA, an organisation run by the presidents daughter Leila. It was in a new new park in the city centre and measured around 7 x 20 metres. It took 5 days of backbreaking work to create the illusion of looking down into a waterfall surrounded by mountains, featuring the big five animals in Azerbaijan- caucasian leopard, brown bear, eagle, wolf and gazelle. Everybody was really amazed by the outcome and the local loved taking photos. The mural was officially opened by the Presidents daughter Leila and lots of other government officials.

During our time there we also helped and mentored some young aspiring Azerbaijani artists. We assisted them to create there own floor murals next to ours.

Palace Road Nature Garden Mural

Category: Community Murals, NEWS / Tag:  

We have just finished a huge mural on the side of the the St Mungo’s Trust building which faces into the Palace Road Nature Garden in Streatham Hill. The wall depicts the seven continents of the world as stain glass windows to reflect the multicultural community. It was a great inter-generational project working with 3 to 70 year old’s from the local area. The mural has mad a huge difference to the enjoyment and profile of the lovely nature garden. It was funded by Lambeth Council and supported and organised by the friends group, headed by Gerry Mc Ateer.

For the opening local celebrity Levi Roots came down and unveiled the windows one by one. It was a great day and celebration of a wonderful project.
