Help choose new mural for St Andrew's Park
A new mural will be painted on the toilet block in St Andrew's Park in October by Bristol’s acclaimed street artist Alex Lucas, otherwise known as LucasAntics. The work has been commissioned by the Friends of St Andrew's Park (FOSAP) following an anonymous donation to the group.
The beautiful design shows a hummingbird pollinating a giant flower and has been painted in four versions each featuring different colours.
The final design will be chosen by a vote on FOSAP’s Facebook page - from a selection of different colour schemes – where people will be able to cast their vote.
The announcement of the new artwork by Lucasantics has already met with universal approval and delight – including online comments like “love all her work, this is a beautiful scheme and design” and “what a great choice of local artist”.
Alex will start painting her new design sometime in October – shortly after the wall has been prepared with the help of Bristol City Council.
Once the design is completed it will be protected with anti-graffiti paint. The previous design was painted by street artist Minto and lasted 7 years before it became too vandalised to maintain.
Martin Weitz from the FOSAP committee says: “We are really excited by this beautiful new art work which Alex Lucas has offered to paint in the park – she has a brilliant and distinctive style which will blend in with the landscape of the park perfectly.”
Two of the possible designs are featured here – the other designs can be viewed on the Friends of St Andrews Park Facebook page.
People can vote for their favourite design by going to the Friends of St Andrews park Facebook page in the last week of September. The vote is open until midnight on Sunday 3rd October.
