Kip Wall:
A Window To Hackney

Meet the artists of one of the most exciting pieces of street art in London

We are beyond proud to announce that our Kip Wall: A Window To Hackney is now complete, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.

Last year Artistic Director Talina Naviede and the creative team at Kip launched  ‘A Window to Hackney’ competition to give 5 UK artists the chance to win the hotel’s wall as the canvas for their work. The project was devised to transform an empty external wall into a high impact, vibrant and inspirational exhibition space for contemporary street art to uplift and enlighten the area.

Now completed, A Window To Hackney comprises 20 murals created by 5 incredible UK based artists. What unites them all is the theme of ‘Connection’, something we have all been craving and hoping to rebuild after 2 very tough years. The installation welcomes people with a positive message about the multicultural and vibrant nature of Hackney, one of the most progressive and diverse boroughs in London.

The art will be seen by millions of commuters and local communities alike as they  pass through, and the hope is it will become one of the most exciting and talked about pieces of street art in London.

My aim in life is to make people happy! Whether that’s through murals, collaging or teaching, I want everyone to feel the benefits of being immersed in colour and shape. My work reflects me as a person, as my happy disposition is what makes me, me.
