Brightening up the area!

Here's a fantastic non-paper related post!

In May I visited Victoria Walmsley and Owen Phillips who are both part of The Bread Collective: http://justinsamazingworldatfennerpaper.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/everything-in-between.html

Anyway, they've just unveiled their new website and one of the projects they've just completed is these fantastic murals painted in Hackney Wick. Basically, Bread wanted to brighten up an unloved, bleak street called White Post Lane and managed to secure funding from the London Legacy Development Corporation to paint the murals. The murals  are based on the industrial past and heritage of the Hackney Wick area and took over 6  months of community engagement to become a reality.
The Bread Collective are: Owen Phillips, Victoria Walmsley, Jo Lee and Luke James
