Arise Harlow welcomes new occupant, MurWalls
Street-art style art installation business MurWalls moves into the Arise Innovation Hub in Harlow in November.
Started in August 2019, the business designs and creates major street-art installations across the UK. They work with international brands and clients including major football clubs, charities, schools, hospitals and community organisations. These big names range from West Ham United football club and England Rugby, to Sky and Sony pictures.
Their work includes an inspirational mural at The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow to commemorate the COVID-19 pandemic. They have installations at local schools and communities to inspire, engage and commemorate, such as the mural of the late Queen Elizabeth and an Eastenders favourite, June Brown. They have attracted extensive media attention in both national and international press, and have been featured in BBC news reports.
Founder and CEO Marc Silver says:
“MurWalls is elated to announce its relocation to the Arise Harlow premises. As we embark on our fourth year in the realm of street art, we believe that this move is exceptionally well-timed to sustain the exponential growth of our enterprise.”
“Beyond the prospect of engaging with a diverse community of creative thinkers and innovators, we are enthusiastic about our affiliation with the University and are eager to contribute by delivering lectures to students, sharing insights into our entrepreneurial journey and our experiences as street artists. Moreover, we are excited about the opportunity to identify and nurture the next generation of artistic talent, fostering their development under our guidance while preserving their unique creative essence.”
MurWalls’ approach offers high profile authentic and licenced artworks with global brands. The business hold licences with a number of global brands, ensuring that the artwork is official and authentic.
Marc goes on to say:
“MurWalls is actively exploring innovative avenues to further advance our artistic endeavours, with artificial intelligence emerging as an extraordinary and futuristic medium to bring our creations to life.”
“This moment marks an exhilarating chapter in the history of MurWalls, and we are delighted to be associated with Arise and its array of products and opportunities.”
They have already committed to supporting another Arise Member to do an art installation at their forthcoming new premises, and their passion and support for community is clear in their work. Arise Innovation Hubs hope to link MurWalls with the university via ARU employability and knowledge transfer opportunities, particularly as there is room for exploring the application of AI and AR in street art.
