Tom Pearman

Public Artist Tom Pearman, has taken the concept of the rail and tram networks and the idea of ‘moving along a line’, to create a series of way-finding signs, together with a wall art plaque which references the rail network colours and symbols. This artwork and signage creates a unique and inspiring identity for the development. The large plaque is located on a prominent wall space within the development. Tom will use particular colours and font with an Art-Deco style, to reflect the important period when there was significant infrastructure growth in Croydon. These signs and artworks are created using vitreous enamel on steel – this is the same material and technique that is still used today for signage utilised by the rail transport network in London, both overground and underground.
