Lot Essay

This is the original working maquette for ‘Big Mother’, the tallest mural in Britain situated on the façade of the condemned West London council tower block ‘Charles Hocking House’. The mural, a forlorn mother and child figure, draws attention to our need for social housing, a message ironically rendered more acute by the building's scheduled imminent demolition. The maquette was donated by Stik to fund the community-led initiative ‘MyMural’.

“MyMural is a project designed to empower council residents to curate Art on their own estates. I am delighted Stik is working with researchers from our Design Against Crime centre and the Mayor’s Office to make a difference to creating colourful cities…”
