This project was funded on 28 Jan 2015!

The Turnpike Art Group have placed artworks by British Street Artist ATM in a number of local sites. For this new piece, we have been given permission to create a two-storey depiction of the Grey Heron - as a symbol for the plight of our threatened indigenous bird life.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a unique artwork on the side of a London residential house.

Why it's a great idea:

TAG champion the natural world. And through skilled artists such as ATM we can draw focus on the ever-diminishing bird life which once existed in abundance in both rural and urban landscapes. As we claim more and more green spaces for concrete developments, wildlife suffers.

The vision of a graceful heron flying overhead to a new watering spot has all but disappeared.

ATM's Heron artwork will be both beacon for change, and a trigger for education.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engaging the artist to spend 2-3 days painting directly onto the urban infrastructure.
