Created for The Nottingham Emmanuel School, this large scale artwork is situated in their central corridor. The brief was to depict the schools “house heroes” and their core value words — ‘hope’, ‘community’ , ‘wisdom’, dignity’. The wall-space measures over 9 meters in length and 2.5 meters in height.
The final piece was create as a collage of digitally manipulated images relating to the heroes. The value words boldly fill the width of the artwork. The college invokes a wall of ripped posters — the visual language featured on streets across the cultures represented by the heroes. The value words and the heroes persist through the layers of ripped posters — expressing their their lasting value and enduring relevance through many years.
