As an activation to celebrate one year since B&Q and Shelter partnered up, Good Relations commissioned this temporary street artwork on the Christmas Steps in Bristol. Initially designed by an artist at Good Relations, this colourful mural depicts the positive steps being taken by a homeless person on their journey with the help of Shelter and B&Q.
There were a couple of interesting challenges to the project. First off, ensuring that the painting we’d been sent worked as an anamorphic projection on the steps. On top of this, as the site for the temporary installation is grade listed, the team had to ensure that after the one day activation, the removal of the temporary graffiti left no trace behind on the Christmas Steps. Both of which were achieved successfully.
A big thank you to Bristol Council for their help and support with this project.
