Living Walls has been commissioned by Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of the Arts & Culture programme and curated and produced by Moniker Projects and Create.

‘Meet Me In The City’ by artist Jo Peel is a 200-metre mural that absorbs and reflects the surrounding environment of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, specifically depicting the unique character of Hackney Wick, an environment in flux, growing and changing from the roots of its industrial past. A 30-metre section of the mural has been transformed into one of Peels trademark stop motion animations; it tells a story of lost messages within the changing landscape of East London and how this feeds into people’s lives and the impact on them.
