Alex Simopoulos created  a vibrant  mural for a previously unloved wall at Arena. He has received a lots of positive support from Arena residents resulting in it being commissioned by the Haringey Arts Village Fund. Not only did the residents support the mural’s application but also lent a helping hand and some striking bamboo plants were donated to make it complete.  

… ‘It has been a great experience for me, as it helped me to realise a project I have been thinking about for quite a long time but never have the budget to fund it. It has been the biggest mural I have painted in London and for the first time I have experimented with incorporating plants and moss paint. I think that is really positive that our warehouses’ residents can get the funding and be employed to work on their projects which stay within the community.’
