Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the Ministry of the Environment, Energy, Climate Change & Education and the Ministry of Culture, the Media, Youth & Sport has announced the successful applicants for the creation of two further street art murals.
These are: Prince Edward’s Gates – Eleanor Taylor Dobbs
The inspiration for the artist’s “Old Soldiers’ View’ mural comes from the “multi- layered history of Gibraltar as if perceived at the Gate, 1790”. The artist aims to create a romantic landscape of ruins, defences, and distant views within the closed and dimly lit tunnel. It will be painted in sepia tones have a strong narrative and emotionally evoke the past whilst making references to today.
