Telephone Boxes, Vinyl, 2022
Winter can be a time to reflect, to experience feelings of nostalgia and warm memories towards our loved ones. It's also a time of renewal, in anticipation of the new year, and many people are reconnected during the festive period. I was inspired to create this artwork by the memory of being a child again, excited for the celebrations ahead.
Molly McGrath is a multimedia illustrator and student at The University of Arts, London who explores a range of topics and mediums within her practice. From working with Macmillan Cancer Support on an animation advertisement to illustrating children's story books. With a passion for telling stories, Molly enjoys using unusual materials to enhance a narrative. In January 2022, Molly started a charity project called 'The Loved One's Project' - a non-profit project with the aim to support people going through the bereavement process using art - drawing memories that sadly can't be possible. Her goals are to create designs with impact or that can put a smile on someone's face.
Launching in late 2022, 'Winter's Wander' is the theme of our seven newly commissioned wintry additions to our free Wembley Park Art Trail. Gracing unlikely canvases such as Olympic Way, the Spanish Steps and Arena Square, 'Winter's Wander' inspires joy, togetherness and a sense of adventure. Using both local and leading artists, 'Winter's Wander' features digital pieces, lighting installations and displays, cartoon-like illustrations, and new permanent artworks including tiled murals and painted pieces.
