UPDATE 11th Jan: we have reached our crowdfunder goal in just 75 hours!
@Lionel’s murals have become a popular hallmark of South London, and with your help, Forest Hill is getting in on the action.
Our crowdfunder will run for six weeks from today, and if we successfully raise the funds required, the Forest Hill mural will be painted in March.
The mural design features a nod to the walrus mascot of our local treasure, the Horniman Musuem.
The design and colour was decided by a poll of local residents, after a call for submissions from local artists.
In order to distinguish Forest Hill’s mural from the blue and yellow colour scheme of Brockley’s design, Lionel will tweak the yellow colour (shown in the mock-up) to a London Overground orange.
The site for this mural will be Waldram Crescent (AKA South Circular) under the railway bridge, on the eastern side as indicated here:
We have agreement in principle from Network Rail, who own the underpass. The artist has worked with them on similar projects around South East London. The Horniman Museum have been supportive of our use of the walrus mascot.
We really appreciate your support in this local project. To donate, please visit http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/forest-hill-mural
All money raised will pay for materials involved in this project and payment to the artist
