We’re looking for a local artist to paint a mural in central Thamesmead!

We've commissioned Moniker Projects to develop and deliver a programme of high-quality murals on eight underpasses that connect Thamesmead’s winding network of picturesque canals in the north and central Thamesmead.

The murals will celebrate Thamesmead’s rich and diverse landscapes, wildlife and cultural heritage, whilst providing signage and wayfinding for pedestrians and cyclists. The mural programme will feature five artists and take place across eight sites. Four artists have already been confirmed. These include Jo Peel, Louis Masai, Xenz and Hixxy. Artists were selected for their affinity with nature and proven track record in marrying urban art expression with themes of the natural world, alongside their experience of creating large scale murals.

We are now seeking to appoint a fifth artist, who either lives or works in Thamesmead to deliver a 10m long mural on an underpass by Woodpecker Close in central Thamesmead.


Budget: £2,500


Application Deadline: 21 September 2020 at 12 noon
