Organised by the Visual Art & Design department at the BRIT School and supported by Croydon BID, Croydon Council, R&F Properties and the Royal Bank of Canada, the urban art trail is part of the students’ UAL (University of the Arts London) Final Major Project.
Each piece of work is a snapshot of the students’ individual exploration of themes and ideas of their own choice.
Pieces are dotted across 13 sites to create a walking tour of the town centre, with 20 works of art placed around the R&F site on Park Street.
Each piece features a QR code, which will take visitors to the biography of the artist, where they can find out more about the artwork and the person behind it.
Schroders, Hammerson and Whitgift Centre, Henley Construction, Smoothbean, Gustoso, Abad Supermarket, Top Stitch, Crushed Bean, Turf Gallery, Angelo Gents Barbers and Ludoquist have also supported the development of this project.
Matthew Sims, Chief Executive, Croydon BID, said: “We’re delighted to welcome these pieces of art from some incredibly talented students we have right here in Croydon.
“It will bring some additional colour to the town centre and thanks to all of those who have given their support to this exhibition.”
Roxanne Eddings, Development Manager at R&F, said: “Croydon excites R&F because it is full of opportunity, with a diverse mix of people and talents across the community. The BRIT School sums up everything that is good about Croydon, revolutionising the lives of its students and adding to the buzz surrounding one of London’s best places. It’s therefore a privilege to host the BRIT School artwork around our Queen’s Square development, and we look forward to continuing to grow our links with Croydon and its people.”
