Local artists are adding a pop of colour to public spaces across Northolt through a series of art installations.
Last year, a Visions for Northolt competition invited local creatives to submit art ideas to transform public spaces across Northolt. Four local artists were selected to develop their creative designs into unique art murals that captures their individual perspectives of the area and celebrates Northolt’s diversity.

You said, we did
Councillor Shital Manro, the council’s cabinet member for good growth and new housing, said: “Local people wanted to see more public art and culture in the area. We listened. The Visions for Northolt team worked closely with the local artists to deliver these temporary art works across Northolt – I think the installations look amazing.”
