FISHERTON Street in Salisbury has been bathed in colour after a street mural was revealed.
The scaffolding has been taken down to reveal the piece, created by artists David Shillinglaw and Lily Mixe.
Their collaboration references the River Avon and global nature, as well as more local ecsystems.
David and Lily were selected for the job after an national competition, sponsored by Salisbury Civic Society, which took place in January with the brief ‘future’.
The call for entries resulted in 25 submissions and after a rigorous process the judging panel – made up of Fisherton Street traders, the owner of the mural location, a local gallery owner, a councillor and members of the Salisbury Civic Society, selected the piece.
David and Lily have extensive experience of murals, working internationally in places such as Barcelona, New York and Tokyo.
David said: “I am trying to speak in a universal language about universal themes.”
Lily is a figurative and literal artist, placing a strong emphasis on the natural world.
Chair of the Salisbury Civic Society, Stephanie Siddons Deighton, said: “It has been a privilege to work with David and Lily.
“They have provided the Society with an exceptional opportunity to contribute to public art in Salisbury by sponsoring a design that fulfills one of our key aims of shaping the future, while reflecting the lively and diverse nature of Fisherton Street and its cosmopolitan atmosphere.
“I would like to thank everyone involved in this venture. The project would never have been possible without the kind help and support from Angela Ockenden, the owner of the property, and a significant contribution from a private donor.”
