Crown Paints has provided its Sandtex Trade masonry paint to create two end of terrace house murals as part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 project.
Installed as part of the Hull 2017 ‘Roots & Routes’ season, the Terrace Enders project involves a team of professional artists creating meaningful images of Hull’s fishing industry, its allied industries and the communities they sustained. It has been developed by local community-led social enterprise the Goodwin Development Trust, along with the residents of Hessle Road, and funded by Hull 2017’s Creative Communities Programme in partnership with the Big Lottery Fund.
Terrace Enders lead artist, Andy Pea, said:"We want to create two fantastic pieces of art that can stand on Hessle Road for a long time.”
Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, added: "Hessle Road is a pivotal part of Hull life and its heritage, and we are pleased to be able to offer support for these new murals through our Creative Communities Programme". “It will be a wonderful addition to the city streetscape, to be enjoyed by the local community and visitors alike."
The Terrace Enders project is one of a number of schemes Crown Paints will be supporting throughout 2017, with focus on two of the brand’s attributes of colour and heritage.
