Wallwork commissioned for the pedestrian route alongside Bristol Heart Institute. The stencilled artwork of oversized bark and leaf rubbings creates a filigree pattern on the white render of the building and is intended to discourage tagging. A small area of native woodland is sited opposite the pedestrian route and the artwork references the importance of this to both patients and local residents.
A partnership project with St. Michael's on the Mount Primary School, drawings from year 3 participants are a key part of the artwork.
