Bedford Place Blockades

Colourful geometric blockade murals, inspired by the Victorian architecture in the Bedford Place area.

GO! Southampton

October 2020

GO! Southampton and Southampton City Council recently closed some of the roads in Bedford Place to create more space for pedestrians. The result was more space for everyone and a series of concrete blockades in need of some brightening up. I was invited to paint two of the blockades and couldn’t wait to get started.

From the outset, I really wanted the blockade designs to connect with the local community in some way. Through some research I identified some of the beautiful Victorian architecture in the Bedford Place area and this formed the basis for my inspiration. I recreated elements of the architecture as graphic shapes and then used these to create the abstract forms that form the visual language of the murals.
