Since 2013, University of the Arts London (UAL) has been home to the Big Walls and Windows Project. This initiative gives students the opportunity to submit their work for a chance to be featured in a temporary exhibit within the college. In collaboration with Cass Arts, Liquitex was proud to continue supporting the project this year by providing materials and covering equipment costs.

After an extensive submission and selection process, second year BA Fine Art student Sarah Savage and BA Fine Art graduate Alice Bajaj were chosen as the winners of this year’s competition. Sarah was chosen as the winner for UAL Camberwell College of Arts, and her mural was displayed at the entrance to the school.  Sarah’s design concept was inspired by landscapes, travel, and the juxtaposition between freedom and restriction. Her mural featured a variety of Liquitex colors and mediums, including Ceramic Stucco, Modeling Paste and Black Lava.

Alice Bajaj was chosen as the winner for UAL Central Saint Martins. In her piece, Alice married silhouette motifs of the people seen around the college building and surrounding areas, symbolizing different identities and styles of the students, staff and members of the public that circulate. Alice utilized Louise Bourgeois’ Maman and Kathy Acker’s pseudonym of The Black Tarantula as inspiration, exploring the symbolism of the spider in the history of feminist art.
