The Mural in Howick

The Mural in Howick

This was commissioned by the Howick Village Business Association, and paid for from a grant from the Department Of Justice. The brief for the work was broadly to be a historic, Howick depiction. The owners of the nearby “Rosscourt” said that they preferred a maritime theme.

The mural is to proceed in three stages. Stage one is completed. Stage two is another large painting “Working Horses” that will face the intersection. There are two more paintings as stage three, to be placed further down Cook Street to the left of the completed stage one.
