The Megaro project
In early 2012 AoC completed the largest mural in London, a monumental 450m2 painting opposite St. Pancras International Train Station. The mural was painted by four members of the collective and encompasses two sides of the five storey Georgian building.
The mural took three weeks to complete with the artists collaborating to create a single work that utilised their individual styles and perspectives.
The artists were inspired by the ongoing regeneration in the area; and were keen to emphasise Kings Cross’ status as a major gateway for both international and national visitors to the city.The influence of the mural continues inside the building with a permanent collection of artworks in the restaurant and a one of a kind reception designed for the attached hotel.
The challenge was to create a mural that would at once enhance the complex multifaceted character of the grand Georgian building and reflect the strong modern geometry in the artists work.
