Green Man Estate gets arty with new murals

West Ealing’s Green Man Estate now features two large murals after housing association A2Dominion ran a competition for artists with residents voting on which murals they wanted to see.

Both murals are hand-painted and inspired by the changing of the seasons.

Multidisciplinary artist Frankie Strand created the first mural and her vision of of nature with a design that captures the start of spring. and her vision puts nature at its heart, with the design capturing some of the emerging signs of life that come with the beginning of spring.

Frankie said: “I really enjoyed working on the spring wall project, it was great to have such a large wall to work with, featuring so many plants I love to see coming out in the springtime. I hope people enjoy it and perhaps take inspiration, whether that’s creatively, within your gardens, or perhaps encouraging kids to notice things featured in the mural in the wild. Spring flowers are such a welcome sight after a cold winter, take pleasure in the small things, like the first sightings of crocuses.”

The second mural is inspired by autumn and was created by duo Clara Wilkinson and Mary West from the Living Wall Murals. The mural features autumnal wild flowers, grasses, dried seed heads and bright coloured leaves synonymous with Autumn.

Clara and Mary said: “We love the way it makes it such a joyous and uplifting space. Many residents stopped and commented on how beautiful it was. We feel that adding nature-based imagery to an urban environment has an astonishing effect on the atmosphere felt by all.”

All residents on the new development were given the opportunity to vote for their favourite design from a selection of entries. They were then entered into a prize draw to win a framed print of the artists’ designs.

Green Man Lane residents and competition winners, Juan and Ingrid, said: “We really like both murals as they are a true reflection of the respective seasons. There is a great selection of colours, images and overall quality of the painting. It’s very and nice to look at, it certainly makes the spaces a lot more lively and pleasant.”

The Green Man Lane development replaces a 1970s estate of 464 homes and will provide up to 945 new homes along with a new primary school.

The regeneration at Green Man Lane has been undertaken as a joint venture partnership with A2Dominion and developer Real. New homes on future phases are available through FABRICA.
