We love providing powered access for outdoor art projects from the teams such as Wood Street Walls (see earlier posts: Genie boom hire from Star paints a picture – All good in the Wood), so we were excited to see what East London based Bread Collective had in store for their project at The Stoke Newington Heritage Mural Project.
The Stoke Newington Heritage Mural Project is a community arts and heritage project inspired by Stoke Newington’s radical and literary history, and its long standing reputation for tolerance. The project culminated with a stunning typographic mural being painted onto the large black east facing wall overlooking the local Primary School’s playground. The special typeface was designed in conjunction with Matt Willey – you can download the typeface here (all proceeds go to Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Support)
The video is a great demonstration of the making of the mural – “Everyone here has a story“.
When it came to painting the mural, the Bread Collective team called upon Star Platforms to help provide safe work area. They needed space for multiple operatives, large, clean working area.
They needed two machines to enable four of the artists to work on the wall at the same time at different positions of the mural.
Star Platforms provided a Skyjack 6832RT 11.8m diesel scissor lift with an expansive platform including a useful 1.52m roll out deck extension alongside a Niftylift Height Rider 12 NDE (HR12) – self-propelled boom lift with useful 6.1m working outreach.
