We are delighted to announce the launch of Living Walls, our new art project for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park stretching over two kilometres.

Delivered in partnership with Moniker Projects and funded by the London Legacy Development Corporation, Living Walls sees five new commissions across the park featuring 40 new artworks.

Your Ad Here offered 35 independent local businesses the opportunity to have an bespoke outdoor advertisement created by artists with a connection to east London including David Bachelor, Jeremy Deller and Ruth Ewan.

The project is a celebration of the local independent businesses that are such an integral part of east London’s community and economy, but that wouldn’t normally have the resources for large-scale billboard advertising. Local butchers, bakers, corner shops and hairdressers were connected to the diverse community of artists in east London to create partnerships that we hope will continue to thrive, improving community relationships and opportunities for growth across both the business and creative sectors.
