Many of our partners and residents are using their windows to display artworks, here we celebrate their works and share more information.
Wandsworth Council and the Royal College of Art (RCA) have selected the artist, Hannah Coulson, to bring some brightness to Battersea this winter with a new dazzling public artwork.
Coulson, an illustrator who works at the RCA managing their FUELRCA programme, has designed a unique winter rainbow that will ripple through Battersea High Street, stopping to ‘explode’ in three special locations and upon windows, where audiences can take selfies against the spectacularly colourful backdrops and share via #BrightBattersea on social media.
Artist Walks & Sprout Art
Artists Walk aims to bring greater awareness and connections amongst artists and art lovers. It provides a simple, inexpensive way for artists to showcase their work and to increase their exposure to the people around them, who might otherwise not know about them.
For the local community, it’s a way to discover the creative people in your neighbourhood and to make your daily walks more inspiring!
As Sprout Arts, one of the featured Wandsworth windows says: “Artists Walk which is based on Instagram – it has artists featured on an interactive map from across London, including a lot in Battersea.”
Sprout Arts, on 74 Moyser Road, SW166SQ, has just opened a fantastic window exhibition of Lucinda Denning’s art which will be up until 28th November.
There is also a window exhibition in The Living Room Place, 19 Thrale Road, SW161NS, of artworks which are part of the Sprout Arts ArtLoan initiative.
The other artists in Furzedown on the #ArtistsWalk map with art displayed in their front windows are Amanda Blunden, Margo Randon, Furzedown Art Studios and Amy Adams, as well as plenty more around Wandsworth on the map.
