Camille Walala brings colour to everyday life in her commissioned pedestrian crossing at Southwark.
Transport for London, in collaboration with Better Bankside have brought back ‘colourful crossing’ for a second time, this year commissioning Camille Walala, working alongside Preformed Markings, experts in road markings.
Walala leaves her mark, with a bold and colourful exploration of her iconic aesthetic, made possible with thanks to Avenue of Art, who aim to bring world-class art to public spaces, for both existing and new art fans to enjoy.
This installations builds on the success of the colourful crossing competition from 2015, which concluded that 85% of people wanted to see more art along Southwark Street and 70% felt happier as a direct result of the creative project.
‘Colourful Crossings’ will be on show until the end of October 2016.
