THE KING'S LAND MURALS
"the largest single-artist street art project in the UK" GlobalStreetArt
" (think Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ meets Picasso’s ‘Guernica’)."
"an unlimited number of ideas and freedoms.., an extraordinary visual experience."
TAKING OVER A HOUSING ESTATE
The King’s Land was an urban art installation consisting of a series of drawing-based murals by Nazir Tanbouli on the exterior walls of an East London housing estate undergoing the process of large scale regeneration. The Kingsland Estate off the Kingsland Road in Haggerston, is due for imminent demolition and is depopulated and bricked up. The King’s Land aimed to bring a dramatic eruption of art into this dreary urban landscape.
Nazir Tanbouli is an Egyptian-born artist working in drawing, painting and mural art. He was born in Alexandria, Egypt and studied at the Faculty of Fine Art there, and also at Camberwell College of Art in London.
