Introducing face-ade – the major new public artwork for Tŷ Pawb developed by Kevin Hunt as part of our annual Wal Pawb (“Everybody’s Wall”) commission.
Alongside artwork for Wal Pawb’s two revolving billboards, Kevin has devised a multifaceted project for Tŷ Pawb as part of the commission.
Each billboard plays host to complex interconnected patterns.
Kevin’s playful approach to linguistics informs the visual design of the project.
Green fingers and fizzy drinks
Kevin’s project also includes Tŷ Pawb’s new rooftop garden, which will soon be home to a range of edible plants.
The garden is being developed and maintained by Clwb Garddio, a community group of volunteer gardeners who meet every other Friday.
Ingredients grown in the garden will be used to make a fizzy drink which will be served in a limited edition compostable paper cup that visually compliments the billboards design.
A DIY, community-led production line encourages greener ways of thinking about what we drink and where such products come from, while generating income to be pumped back into maintaining the rooftop garden.
Green-fingered gardeners, hobby horticulturists and anybody interested in joining Clwb Garddio are encouraged to contact Heather Wilson (Heather.Wilson@wrexham.gov.uk), Tŷ Pawb’s Volunteer Coordinator for further details of how to get involved.
A link between the gallery and markets
Cllr Hugh Jones, lead member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety said: “Wal Pawb is an important artistic feature within Tŷ Pawb, emphasising the intersection between the gallery and the market hall.
“It is fantastic news that Kevin Hunt, a Wrexham graduate, has been selected for the next iteration of this commission. Kevin is working with Tŷ Pawb’s team and local residents in innovative way, ensuring the Wal Pawb artwork infiltrates the market hall.”GET UPDATES FROM TŶ PAWB
