Neville the Starfish

Damian joined the Sir HvH Arts Foundation graffiti art project in Hampstead Heath for “Neville the Starfish.” Looks like Neville is getting some purple highlights from our favorite Ginger! Sponsored by Love Camden, the project supported over 96 young people in the community to be able to express their talented skills.
Youngsters used graffiti to transform a bridge linking Hampstead Heath and Gospel Oak. Children aged 8 to 18 spray painted the pathway leading from Savernake Road, as part of a charity scheme to encourage creativity and community engagement. The murals feature two steam trains made up of characters and creatures imagined by the children, drawing on the mystical and the magical.
The charity’s CEO, Debbi Clark, told the Ham&High: “The idea is that the community is the children and families, they all have an input into what they’re doing. So they then get pride of where they are and a sense of what they’re doing. For more information about the Sir HvH Arts Foundation, please visit their website here.
