William Morris Mural in Walthamstow, London

Over the last year, the East London neighborhood of Walthamstow has become a regular street art and graffiti destination for us as a result of the work of local street art organization Wood Street Walls (Previously on Hookedblog) and the talented street artists who they have enlisted to painted murals across the borough of Waltham Forest.


Walthamstow Street Art

We have lost track of the number of times we have visited over the year to photograph some of the artists at work on their murals, on occasion arriving either too early or late in efforts to capture some of the working process or the best light for the final shots.

One such visit saw us photographing the mural work of artist ATMA, a Blackhorse Road resident, and one of the founding artists of the Wood Street Walls Project.

This was one of those murals where we, unfortunately, missed the artist at work only managing to capture images of the finished mural. 

Painted on the gable end wall on Bedford Road, ATMA’s mural features a large scale stencil style portrait of English textile designer and leading member of the Arts and Crafts Movement William Morris.

A one time Walthamstow resident, Morris’s family home located next to this mural from artist ATMA, now houses the William Morris Gallery. We have previously featured ATMA’s Morris mural on the blog, first posting about it here back in September 2016.

Following the release of a short film online documenting the entire story of the mural from the initial discussions, the voting, the installation to the actual painting of the mural we figured it was worth sharing some of our images of the mural again along with this film.
