Photo: Tesco Mural: A proud and colourful reflection of Camborne’s past and present.

It’s taken three years of work but Tesco Camborne is now decorated with a series of bright and eye-catching murals on its Wesley Street wall.

The subject of the five window-shaped murals was inspired by the town’s key buildings, spaces, views and historic characters. Created as part of the community-based Images of Camborne art project, the art work uses a range of techniques including drawing, screen printing and collage.

The installation has been funded by Tesco and FEAST, as the final output of the project started by BID Camborne and Safer Camborne, part of the county’s community safety partnership.

The designs were created by Camborne Science and International Academy, Coastline Housing, Costa Coffee, Youth Cafe and The Donald Thomas Centre. These groups were helped by local artists Alessandra Ausenda, Lizzie Black, Tony Minnion and Hazel MacGregor through community art creators, Tough Dough.

“The artwork is attractive, colourful, vibrant and a reflection of Camborne and its people past and present,” said Mel Martin, BID Camborne Manager. “Everyone who participated should be proud of this new positive tribute to Camborne on this main entrance into town.”
