Have you spotted Mark Titchner’s new artworks in London Bridge yet?
The way we experience our shared spaces has changed dramatically over the past few months. As the London Bridge area starts to welcome back more visitors Team London Bridge has collaborated with Mark Titchner to celebrate the strength and solidarity of the community in a new series of artworks. This collaboration with Mark Titchner evolves his relationship with the area and brings focus to the dynamic cultural identity of London Bridge.
“The original concept for this series of artworks was based on the idea of offering a nurturing, reassuring presence as we ease back into our un/familiar streets. However, as I developed the texts for the works, I also felt a sense that this moment – despite all the difficulty – presents an immense opportunity; the opportunity to build a better version of what we had before. As such the aesthetic style of the works shifted away from something soothing towards something bold and celebratory. Reflecting a hope that despite all the challenges so far and those yet to come, we will be together again in the streets we know and love.” – Mark Titchner
You can find these artwork on Newcomen Street, opposite Crol and Co coffee shop and at the top of Bermondsey Street Tunnel, between Pizza Pilgrims and Honest Burgers. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come!
