Jayaben Desai – Wembley

A mural was requested by Brent Council to cover up a wall that was covered in paan spit. Paan spitting is a problem in the area and the idea was to cover a wall in beautiful art in order to prevent people from spitting on it. The lady in the mural is local hero Jayaben Desai. Jayaben Desai (2 April 1933 – 23 December 2010) was a prominent leader of the strikers in the Grunwick dispute in London in 1976. More on this mural here.

Strong Women of Brent

The mural concept was created by students in the local area. Nathan Evans completed the mural, which has been very well received by the community. The mural is situated at 412 Wembley High Road. This colourful mural is a celebration of the women of Brent. The goal was to create an eye catching public realm artwork that would empower all women in the local community.

Greenfield School Mural

Illustration and muralist Dave Bain brings his craft to another proud school community with this joyful, dynamic mural for Greenfield E-Act Academy, Bristol. Together with @letsmakeartuk, who created concepts, it is delightful to see our artist community come together to create for our schools.

The design incorporates the school’s symbol, the owl, as well as rabbits, a squirrel, and bees. Wildlife is paired with phrases representing the school’s key values.

Our huge thanks to @davebainuk@jessknights_creative for painting (and filming) and to Greenfield E-Act Academy.

Badocks Wood School

The murals concept centres around the schools values:

Colourful crossings

Ealing Road Colourful Crossings

The talented students of Alperton Community School worked with us to redesign two of their local pedestrian crossings. They took inspiration from peacock feathers and the colours of the area. Here are the finished crossings on Ealing road in Wembley!

Shop shutters

Shop shutter art

When a shop closes its shutters at night, what happens? The shutter art enables shop owners to promote what they sell after opening hours to passersby. In Brent, our shutter art has proven popular, and we’ve collaborated with a number of artists to produce it.
