Abbey Harris Mural Fund Past Awards 2013

2013 David Tremlett

A temporary mural for The Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.

Three wall drawings within the gallery for the duration of the exhibition – hand painted by Tremlett and his assistants. The first was based on observations of high-rise buildings and city landscapes the artist made while in Japan. The second, described by Tremlett as the ‘hinge’ between the two larger spaces, was a drawing with diagonals of grey paint and black graphite grease, whilst the final room featured horizontal bands of earth-like colours, a scheme first conceived but unrealised for the Skolkovo Moscow School of Management, Russia.
