Gareth Gardner sees the finishing touches being added to a pavement artwork in Brixton, part of an initiative by new resident Squire and Partners
Pavement culture: Mark Eley of print design firm Eley Kishimoto sprays the finishing touches to an artwork applied onto the pavement of a Brixton side street. The patterned artwork, named Connect Brixton, was one of 10 by local artists commissioned for the Brixton Street Gallery. The project was devised and curated by architecture practice Squire and Partners -- its The Lost Roses of Brixton artwork can be seen on the wall behind Eley's -- and was recently presented on the facades and pavement of the former Bon Marché department store. The building is being refurbished as the new creative studio and offices for the practice.
