I am looking at:

Tustin Estate Art Project

map
Southwark, London,
Working with local school children, artist Randy Klein designed a new entrance and paths for Pilgrims Way School, located on the Tustin Estate. The designs include the four elements, fire, water, earth and air which are depicted in the ceramic work. The idea of a journey and the obstacles that may be encountered are illustrated as mystical beasts and bodies of water. Positive images like angels, brains and hearts are also included. Klein's work can also be seen in the form of an arch in front of Brimmington Park (stainless steel sculpture) which is visible from the Old Kent Road. Young people from the Tustin Estate and students from a local secondary school were consulted, and the art project has created a sense of ownership and pride in the sculpture, which looks like graffiti floating high in the sky.
