Previous Commissions from Aspire Via Studios

South Bank

February 2022

The brief was to create a feature wall for our South bank Artists Studio. The aim of the work was to reflect the location of the building, sitting alongside the River Thames and reflect the importance of “community spirit & support”.

The winner of this commission was young British artist, Macy-Leigh Birleson. You can read more about the commission here and see a gallery of all the submissions here.

Islington

November 2021

The brief was to create large-scale distinctive artwork to bring a splash of colour to the reception area of our newly opened Islington Studios.

The judges loved the work of Abbey Lowden; Abbey's work has lots of energy and movement and felt like the ideal way to welcome artists to the studios.
