Great art by Peter Dunn is adorning Portobello Road at the moment, on the Art of Change wall. The 17-piece work is called Heart of the Community (pic) celebrating people and events that shaped Portobello’s history, and it is amazing. The idea of the Portobello Road Arts Project, the rotating art on the long wall leading to Golborne, is to create a visual link between Portobello Road and Golborne Road Markets. The project hopes to lure people up Portobello Road and then, boom, to the Golborne area.
RBKC has been running the year-round wall art project since, and in September a new installation One Five Zero will be put up to mark the 150th anniversary of the market. If you are an artist, you could submit your ideas too, at rbkc.gov.uk
