Local People, Spon End

Looking back through my work a strong influence has always been subways. I’ve photographed them, filmed them and even held an interactive exhibition within one.

So it’s no surprise that when a Community Street Design Project put out a call for local artists and residents to put forward ideas to renovate a subway just outside Coventry’s city centre, I jumped at the chance to be involved.


After seeing Chris Judge’s amazing renovation of seating areas along Bray’s seafront while visiting Ireland this year, along with the engineering boxes on street corners that had been transformed into works of art in Dublin’s town centre, I was inspired to bring a similar ‘bright’ idea to the subways of Coventry.
