A new artwork has been unveiled in Southwark. ‘The Eye On The Road’ takes pride of place at the back of Bermondsey Square overlooking Tower Bridge Road as is the work of esteemed digital artist, Helen Marshall of The People’s Picture. The giant photo mural is made up of 1,955 images reflecting the local history and present day activities in and around Tower Bridge Road. The eye itself is the artist’s daughter and acts as a signature for her work.
Helen Marshall, whose work includes ‘Face of World War One’ which was commissioned by BBC World Ward One and an images of the Queen in commemoration of the monarch’s Jubilee celebration at Gatwick Airport, worked collaboratively with the Southwark local history service, Team London Bridge, the Bermondsey Street Festival and local photographers to collate images reflecting the local history and present day activities in and around Tower Bridge Road.
