Stik just completed a 125ft piece called “Big Mother” on the side of the Charles Hocking House council estate in Acton. Built for low-income families in 1967, the estate is set to be demolished in 2016.
The artwork aims to highlight the lack of social housing in London and shows a mother and child looking down from a council estate.
According to The Independent, the artwork is also visible from planes flying nearby.
Stik, the formerly homeless street artist who painted the mural said: “Affordable housing in Britain is under threat, this piece is to remind the world that all people need homes.”
