Brick Lane mural
Brick Lane Mural Consultation - Monday 18 October
As part of the Brick Lane Regeneration programme, the council’s High Streets team have been working with the Arts, Parks and Events team to commission a new public artwork to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Bangladesh Independence.
In July – August 2021 the council carried out a consultation on proposals for the mural from 3 artists. The selected artist was informed by feedback from residents, community group, traders and high street businesses. The feedback was reviewed by a jury panel chaired by Councillor Motin Uz-Zaman with Councillor Sabina Akhtar, a representative from the Whitechapel Gallery, and the Swadhinata Trust.
Mohammed Ali MBE was selected and will deliver a unique, public artwork to be installed on the wall of 14 Brick Lane next to Hopetown Street as part of the wider Brick Lane Regeneration scheme.
We are now inviting residents, community groups, traders and high street businesses to join artist Mohammed Ali MBE in a drop-in session at 12 Brick Lane to help develop the design to discuss the design process and journey.
‘I’m passionate about making street-art that speaks to local communities. The mural will provide an unexpected visual encounter with the people living in and around Brick Lane, celebrating the migrant story, the Bangladeshi community, and this important anniversary.’ - Mohammed Ali MBE
