‘Bournemouth – A History Of Shaping The Future’

Painted by renowned graffiti artist Rick Walker, this incredible piece of art was created to celebrate Bournemouth’s creative and sporting community and achievements.

Located in Lansdowne, Bournemouth this giant mural, standing at 15 meters high and 13 meters wide is full of colour and character and is definitely an eye-catcher!

Inspired by the incredible success of A.F.C Bournemouth reaching the Premier League and Second to None, who became the only UK break-dancing crew to have claimed two victories at the UK Bboy Championships. Not forgetting the Bournemouth University graduates and lecturers from The National Centre for Computer Animation who were part of the team that worked on the visual effects for the blockbuster ‘Gravity’, which went on to win an Oscar and the characters Jekyll and Hyde, created by Robert Louis Stevenson who moved to Bournemouth on medical advice, after arriving in Dorset after writing his famous novel, Treasure Island.

After walking past this mural each weekend during the development stages, I got to see this piece slowly come alive to become the striking attraction it is today! I love the contrast, especially with the cityscape surroundings!

If you are like me and have a passion for art and colour and are  in the Bournemouth/Poole area and would like to see this astonishing piece of street art for yourself, it is located on Lansdowne Road, City Centre, Bournemouth, BH1 1RZ. You will not be disappointed! 🙂

Let me know your thoughts!
