16-01-2018 - GLAD TO GET SHOTS OF LATEST PUBLICART PROJECT – USING FOLDED TRAIN MAPS FOR INSPIRATION

The large wall-mounted artwork is located on a prominent wall space within the development and has used particular colours and font with an Art-Deco style, to reflect the important period when there was significant infrastructure growth in Croydon. These signs and artworks are created using vitreous enamel on steel – this is the same material and technique that is still used today for signage utilised by the rail transport network in London, both overground and underground.

Tom has referenced folding train map pamphlets for the artwork which was also employed for a flyer distributed to local residents intorducing them to the project.
