Currently in progress, this mosaic mural is currently being created by experienced mosaic artist Oliver Budd. Oliver is an incredible craftsman and brings a huge amount of knowledge and skill to this commission.
Due to be installed later in 2016 in the village of Yapton in West Sussex. It will become part of a new housing development of 69 affordable properties.
It tells the story of the site’s history based around the theme of ‘navigation’ since the site is 400 meters from Yapton Airfield which played a key role in both World Wars and the disused Chichester & Arundel canals run adjacent to the site.
Oliver had previously worked on public art in Southampton when he restored a huge Henry and Joyce Collins mural for Southampton City Council that was installed on Hamtun Street. To see more of Oliver’s work visit his website www.buddmosaics.co.uk
