Local artist to create Brockley Road mural

The latest visualisation of 180 Brockley Road
Boultbee LDN is the developer responsible for the transformation of 180 Brockley Road from MOT Garage into flats and shops. They've just issued this announcement, updating on the project:

"Boultbee LDN has commissioned local artist, Rhiannon Hunter, to paint a panel of the hoarding at its property development at 180 Brockley Road in Brockley.

"Rhiannon, originally from the North West of England, has lived in the area for ten years and owns a local practice specialising in textile art, sculptural pieces and outdoor paintings. She approached Boultbee LDN last year, requesting to paint a sophisticated mural to reflect the changing architectural landscape of the area.

"Rhiannon comments: “I was drawn to the building activities and was inspired to create something interesting for the hoarding. I often do outdoor paintings in environments where you wouldn’t normally expect them, to encourage people to stop and consider their surroundings. The mural is inspired by architectural forms in the local area.”

"Simon Hosking, Managing Director of Boultbee LDN, adds: “We’re delighted that Rhiannon will be creating a unique design for us and pleased to be supporting local talent.  We are confident that this art work will make our hoarding stand out and attract attention from passers-by, and we look forward to seeing the finished product.”

"The 180 Brockley Road development, a joint venture partnership with Shape Real Estate and Peverill Securities Ltd, is currently under construction and will comprise 25 residential apartments. The marketing suite and show apartment are due to open in September 2015.  Rhiannon will start her art work on the hoarding in the middle of February."

Hunter looks like a talented artist, and it's a shame that her mural will only be temporary, especially as we've lost several as a result of this development.

Can't seem to find any info online but weren't TFL looking for local artists for Crofton Park bridge too?

Looks really good... just need some trees on that side, especially given there's going to be a massive neon sainsburys sign across the building.

I agree this iteration of the design is an improvement on the last. I always thought it was a nice modern interpretation of the canal cottages, but the irregular roof heights now work better, I think.

Ughhhh said...

God it's so hideous!! So sad...

It's difficult to be upbeat about a row of boring boxes.

Monkeyboy said...

is the perspective weird or are the balconies wonky?

It looks encouragingly better composed than most of the new build going up in the borough. And the fact that it's brick, as opposed to the grim polymer render and cardboard cladding that most developers are favouring (I wonder why) means it actually looks ok quality and won't look shit in 5 minutes.

"Can't wait for the Barge to be turned in something better" you would be just the type to move to a small village, next to a church, then demand the church stop ringing the bells, cause YOU don't like it!

anon said...

can't wait to see the first graffiti

Just wait until people do move in. The dodgy dealings around the Barge will be in their sights.
