We are proud to announce that the Grantham Climate Art Prize 2023 mural is now finished and is bringing colour and a strong message to the Tulse Hill end of Norwood Road.
The mural was designed by 17 year old Janet Alao, who won the competition for her age group. Michelle Meola, the artist who painted the mural, worked for weeks on getting the artwork just right and it looks fantastic. People stop and ask questions, it gets people thinking about taking action on climate change and the part that we can all play.
Station to Station and Norwood Forum worked closely with the Grantham Institute, part of Imperial College London to have this location in the heart of Tulse Hill & West Norwood chosen. The competition is sponsored by Octopus Energy and the winners not only got their artwork painted they also won £500!
Special mentions go to: The residents of Orford Court, who were all incredibly positive about having the artwork painted on the wall next to their flats; Steve at Galloways for introducing us to the residents and building owners ARV Investments, who were also very supportive of the mural; Access Self Storage who provided space for Michelle to keep her paint and other materials safe during the weeks that she was painting and B&Q where the paint came from.
There were over 1200 entries for the artwork competition. The winning mural is positive image based on the “9 Things You Can Do About Climate Change”
