One year after the unveiling of the mural to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Richard Burbage, Network Rail has partnered with community groups and Dulwich Sports Club to celebrate sport.
Railway bridges across South London have been transformed into art thanks to the partnership with community groups, schools, artists and Lionel Stanhope.
As an added bonus, the mural was painted as part of the virtual Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House.
Katrina Russell-Adams, a local artist, produced a detailed sketch which Lionel worked on to bring up to a large scale.
The colours of Dulwich Hamlet Football Club are also included.
Katrina said: “I’m an abstract artist and local too so this was perfect for me. Lionel’s done a fantastic job and it’s lovely to see it on such a large scale and nice and bright under this bridge.”
Lionel Stanhope said: “It’s always good to work with Network Rail on these murals, they’re so big and make such a massive difference to the places I’m working in. I get such great feedback from people when I’m painting them, just people walking past. “
Eddie Burton, community engagement manager at Network Rail said: “I’m delighted that one year later, we can return to Dulwich and celebrate the rich sporting history in the area. I hope locals will enjoy this artwork and I’d like to thank all the community groups involved for their help.”
