Well listeners – here I am again with yet more mural marvellousness. Hot on the heels – or pedals -of the Pinehurst Peleton we have a set of murals all round the Mechanics’ Institution.
The Pinehurst Peleton* is a new mural in …. wait for it … Pinehurst. It’s a great name for a mural gracing the side wall of the E-Motion electric cycle shop in Pinehurst – and who knew??
The Redcliffe Art Collective – Well! This week it’s been all about art for Born Again Swindonian. On Wednesday evening myself and Linda Kasmaty went to a happening at St Barnabas’ church in Gorse Hill – apropos the amazing paintings in there. I’ve not yet got round to blogging about that. It’s on my list.

Back in the day, Swindon was something of a mural capital thanks to the work of Swindon-born artist Ken White. One by one his murals disappeared and now only one remains, the first one, the Golden Lion Bridge mural.
Swindon used to be a town full of murals. Many, though not all, were the work of Ken White. Only one of his now remains and that’s the Golden Lion mural.
This blog is an opportunity to share a few photographs of the work of Ken White Swindon artist.
In my recently published book, Secret Swindon, I made a big effort to convey that Swindon’s cultural and creative present is as rich as its cultural and creative past. Many people/entities/artists contribute to Swindon’s varied cultural landscape as the recent Swindon Open Studios even will testify. And one of whom is Swindon born Ken.
20 January 2017 Swindon's Mural Men: Ken White and David Bent I am the mural man, I come from far away and I can paint - yes I can paint. What can you paint - I can paint murals! 'It's a small world'. A cliché? Yup. But true. And listeners it doesn't get much truer...
Cambria Bridge mural. In a neat bit of symmetry Ken White, well known for his murals both here in Swindon, London and the world, has now become the subject of a mural down on Cambria Bridge.
Ken White – Swindon’s Mural Man. Known and loved by many Swindonians for the murals that once were scattered across the town. Only one now remains, and that’s his first one, the Golden Lion Bridge mural.
