Aberfeldy Street used to be a normal London East End street in Poplar until the pandemic hit and someone felt the need to add some colour. Now it has become a very special street. 

In the street there is a row of shops with houses above. There is a pharmacy, a newsagent, a take away food shop, a barber and a fabric shop among others.

To attract new and old customers to the streets and lift the morale of the locals, The London Mural Company completely transformed this block.

The designs painted on the buildings were inspired by a Bangladeshi Kantha tradition. The idea is to recycle old materials and create something new with local communities. One of the objectives behind the project was to celebrate the cultural identity of the people who live around this street in the East of London.
