A street artist’s work has been unveiled as the first in a series of murals to adorn Hackney Bridge.
Busk’s piece, which was designed as part of the 2020 London Mural Festival, is framed in a style similar to Hackney Wick’s Clarnico Sweet Factory adverts of the 1900s.
The design was inspired by the industrial history of the area, celebrates the creativity of Hackney Wick today and brings together writing and muralism.
