Tower Hamlets residents will soon be able to see new murals in the Cemetery Park, featuring different types of birds.
He told East London Lines that the remaining mural was in later stages of completion, expected to be finished in early February:
“The last mural is extra special, painted by artist Curtis Hylton depicting a bird comprised of the symbolic flowers associated with the nationalities which formed the Labour Corps during WW1 and will be part of the Unremembered Project in partnership with Big Ideas Company and the Department for Communities and Local Government.”
Trapped in Zone One teamed up with Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and the British Trust of Ornithology (BTO) to work on this series of nature focused murals on the bridge arches of the Ackroyd Drive Green link area of the park.
Miah said the bird theme was chosen after consulting all of the six involved artists. They were supported by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and also by Great Art and Brewers Paint.
The artists of the murals include Aspire, Woskerski, Ketones6000, Charlie McFarley and Mr Christa, and were all completed using spray cans.
The first set of murals were completed across different areas of the park in early 2017.
Trapped in Zone One then confirmed the next set of artworks, covering the older murals, would be completed in the early months of 2018 in December, 2017.
Creative director of Trapped in Zone One Natalia Suvorova said: “We’re always interested in doing art events to showcase the best of Tower Hamlets through art, and give something back to the community, and therefore keen to collaborate with anyone that is happy to work with us.”
