An art exhibition of the proposed LGBTQ+ mural at Corner New Cross.
We are going to create a fantastic new piece of street-art for the New Cross Area, inspired by the LGBTQ+ community and this exhibition will be to display the initial artwork.
The artwork for the mural will be inspired by the LGBTQ+ community but the themes of inclusivity are global; the aim is to create a piece of art that will be meaningful to as many people as possible so that everyone in the community can imprint something of themselves into the image.
This project is a collaboration between Corner New Cross, coffee shop and art gallery, and 34Bus a Community Interest Company (CIC), made up of graduate artists from The Lewisham School of Muralism (LSoM), with the support of Artmongers (CIC).
Corner is an LGBTQ+ led business, headed up by partners Tarek Merlin (he/him) and Mark Osman-Barter (he/they), and head Barista, Libby Desborough (they/them).
We will be working with LGBTQ+ artists (graduates of LSoM), Liv Wright (she/her), Eli King (they/them) and Alistair Leys (he/him) to create the artwork, which will be designed in discussion with the local community, with input from our residential neighbours and local businesses.
