Monday 14 November 2016

Brixton cyclists - junction of A23 and Ferndale Road by Peter Murray

10×10, brings together 100 participants to create 100 pieces of artwork, giving 100 different perspectives within a snapshot of London. These works are then auctioned off at a special fundraising reception evening, which this year will be held at the RIBA’s headquarters in Portland Place, London.

This year, the theme is Brixton, and NLA Chairman Peter Murray painted a piece around a subject he is very passionate about - Cycling.

'Cycling in London is often seen as a white, middle class activity. The painting portrays a selection of cyclists who cycled through my square around midday in October. They represent the keen road cyclist / commuter, the working cyclist as well as those requiring cheap, efficient way of getting around town. While Mayoral cycling policies are focused on increasing the modal share of BAME cyclists, cycling seems to be alive and well in Brixton.' Peter Murray
