GOLDSMITHS ROW

Goldsmiths Row

A mural created on the old Children’s Hospital on Goldsmiths Row in Hackney and commissioned by Camden based architects HTA after a series of workshops with the local community.

The mural is the result of a discussion with the residents of the local area and references themes of transition and change, whilst paying homage to some of the more authentic businesses of the local area, such as E-Pellicci restaurant on Bethnal Green road, a family run business since 1900 and one of my favourite café’s in London.

Unfortunately the site is now being developed to create the ubiquitous luxury housing which is spreading through the area, the mural has been replaced by a series of glossy photographs depicting happy urban environments.
