Study of Edward Muybridge, Kingston Town Centre

A discovery project of Kingston’s most famous resident: Eadweard Muybridge – Photographer, Cinematic Pioneer, Kingston resident (9th April 1830 – 8th May 1904)

For the centenary of Eadwearde Muybridge, Save The World Club has created a 21st century perspective on the photographer by using one of his original ideas in a modern context to make a huge mosaic to cover a graffiti wall. The competition winner and design inspiration is by Ellie Felicien aged 11 from St Luke’s Primary School. More than 300 young people from local schools including St Luke’s Primary and Greycourt Secondary, Coombe Girls School and through Save The World Club’s successful after schools art club joined together to make the image into a mosaic reality. The work is a stunning addition to the town centre and will become part of the heritage museum history walk. The project was led by Miriam Zadik Gold.

The completed mosaic mural is on permanent display in Castle Street, central Kingston. Come and see for yourself how sensational it is!
