One of the highlights of Farlington 6th Form Art Trip to Brick Lane was ROA’s giant crane, set alongside Martin Ron’s royal guard doing a head stand.
“Another magnificent image was Jim Vision’s ‘Paradise Lost’,” reported the school. “It depicted a massive panoramic mural with a tribal warrior taking centre stage, his richly adorned form merging with the natural world he has lost. It offered a stark reminder of the plight mankind has reeked on the natural environment.”
The school added: “It was great for the students to appreciate the political and environmental narrative in some of these works, as well viewing paintings produced for the sheer pleasure of creating, in a setting for all to see. They walked for what seemed like miles and ended their day with hot rice and noodles, care of Wagamama in Old Spitalfields Market; the perfect end to a wonderful and stimulating day.”
