Public art unveiled in Carnaby
New public artwork has been unveiled at the construction site for Rolfe Judd Planning’s 72 Broadwick Street project.
Carnaby has collaborated with their ocean conservation charity partner Project Zero to produce a series of artworks aimed at raising awareness of ocean conservation by visual artists, poets, and contemporary conceptual artists which have been printed on the building’s vinyl wrap. The huge artwork, measuring 84.5m long and 11.55m high will add a vibrant splash of colour to the west end for the next few months while construction continues behind it.
Once this phase of construction is complete, the wrap will be removed and repurposed for a permanent art feature elsewhere in the Carnaby District.
The original artworks have been displayed in a gallery, and will then be auctioned off to raise money for the Zoological Society of London and the Thames Conservation Project.
The artists who have contributed works are:
- Boy George “Punks Against Pollution 2019”
- Billy Collins “Breakfast”
- Zaria Forman “Whale Bay, Antarctica no.4”
- Bradley Theodore “Death at Sea”
- Henry Hudson “23:01:25-23:01:26”
- Mr Brainwash “Keep our Oceans Beautiful”
- Harland Miller “save the penguin”

Rolfe Judd Planning Director Jan Donovan said: “We are delighted to be involved in this project, redeveloping a landmark building in the heart of Carnaby and using the construction hoarding to promote such important messages on climate change is inspiring”
