An Angel for Edmonton: New public artwork coming soon to Angel Edmonton

As part of our Curate Enfield grassroots public art programme, local residents and ‘public art champions’ have been supported to commission an artwork that will provide a warm welcome to residents and visitors; and be inspired by the cultural diversity and local character of Angel Edmonton. Following an open call out, the public art champions selected artist Rafael Klein to deliver this commission.

Rafael has led creative workshops with pupils at St James and St John’s School in Grove Street and with local residents as part of the Fore Street For All’s London Lates event.  Workshop participants created 3D designs which explored the word ‘Angel.’ These designs are being incorporated into ‘An Angel for Edmonton’ a striking sculptural artwork, which is currently being fabricated and due to be installed on the green outside Joyce & Snells estate in late May this year. The sculpture will be positioned near the border of Angel and Haringey – a fitting location to welcome residents and visitors alike.

This new artwork will be a welcome addition to the fantastic collection of public art that has emerged in the area over the last couple of years. This includes the Fore Street Murals – commissioned by Enfield Council and funded by the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund; and Our River Lea poetry trail and Fore Street Open All Hours Gallery artworks on shop shutters and council owned bins. Both of these projects were curated by Fisher Cheng Architects & REACT and funded by Enfield Council.
