Students created the designs with the help of artist Diana Taylor and Royal Academy sculptor Richard Wilson. They will adorn a pedestrian tunnel in front of the gallery while the Royal Academy building undergoes refurbishment.
Hannah Balogun, Art and Design student at City and Islington, said: “I think it’s an honour having my work displayed on the RA hoarding. I feel like it’s the first step into becoming a real artist and I’m happy to be a part of it.’’
The Royal Academy of Arts Learning Department commissioned freelance artist educator Diana Taylor to design, structure and lead the workshops for the students.
Academy spokesperson Richard Wilson said: “It is always an achievement for young students to put on a collaborative show to a passing public because this is art that will turn people’s heads and get them talking. I am glad to have been a part of this process.”
