LOCAL ARTISTS TO MAKE A LARGE UPCYCLED MOSAIC ON HAZELHURST ESTATE

LOCAL ARTISTS TO MAKE A LARGE UPCYCLED MOSAIC ON HAZELHURST ESTATE

Work and Play Scrapstore (WaPS) – the locally-based re-use charity which promotes artful re-use of of donated surplus materials -  is commissioning local artists to paint colourful murals and to make a large upcycled mosaic on Hazelhurst Estate where the Scrapstore is located.

 

 

Jayson Singh, a Central St Martin’s graduate artist who specialises in large-scale sculptural arts for outdoor installation, will be decorating some of the pillars under Hayesend House Tower block.

 

Stevie King, a experienced community artist known as Weavie Stevie, will be  choregraphing an upcycled mosaic spelling out the word Hazelhurst.

 

Street artist Airborne Mark will be creating a mural of a chameleon alongside the Hazelhurst mosaic. He creates it first as an origami piece then paints the origami directly on to the wall  - so it appears to be 3D - using spray paint.

Jayson and Stevie will be encouraging members of the local community to participate as they will be commencing the artwork during Hazelfest, the second annual mini green festival held on the green in front of Hayesend House Tower.

Held on Sunday 20th May, the event is part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe and celebrates artful reuse.

During last year’s very first Hazelfest, there were over 200 pieces of artwork made by the local community, using donated materials from Scrapstrore.

The brightly-coloured murals and mosaic will light up the walkway between Hayesend House Tower and the adjacent maisonette block.
