The Square Camberley unveils brand new colourful mural
The Square Camberley has revealed its brand-new hand painted mural, packed with lots of fun references to the Camberley area.
Located near Boots outside the Sparvell Way entrance, The Square Camberley commissioned artist Kev Munday to complete the unique hand drawn/painted mural.
The mural depicts local attractions – celebrating the area and Camberley’s history, allowing visitors to The Square to spot these focal points. The colourful installation aims to appeal to all ages with a number of key landmarks included, ultimately providing a sense of community though vibrant artwork.
Local references include:
The white elephant statue
Camberley Kate – a famous local character who used to walk through the town with up to 25 stray dogs
The Agincourt Rock Club
The new leisure centre
Sandhurst Military Academy
The no.1 bus
Elmhurst Ballet School – was a part of the town for 80 years until 2004
The Basingstoke Canal
The Rock Box record shop – one of the oldest in the area
St Michael’s Church
The before picture as displayed above shows how Kev has completely transformed a blank space with creative thinking and a vibrant colour palette to catch the attention of passers-by.
The mural has been painted directly onto the wall with acrylic and spray paint and will now be a permanent feature to The Square Camberley.
Rhoda Joseph, Centre Manager, The Square Camberley, said: “We’re thrilled to unveil the brand-new mural here at The Square Camberley and we can’t thank Kev enough for all his hard work. The vibrant piece of art has proved to be a real talking point for Camberley, with many pieces included to reference key attractions and landmarks. The unique artwork has been signed by Kev and took a total of four days to complete, totally transforming the Sparvell Way entrance into the shopping centre. During what’s been a difficult time, we really hope the new mural will put a smile on our visitors faces and provide a sense of pride for the local community.”
