Sir Peter Bazalgette's creative pick of 2014: Dulux's Colour Britain

Sir Peter Bazalgette, media consultant and chair of Arts Council England, says: "We’re reclaiming the centres of our cities from the depredations of the 1960s planners and the motor car. This is where young people want to live, set up businesses and enjoy culture. Dulux’s ‘Colour Britain’ viral films, with striking public art, capture this sentiment with verve and emotion."

Summary Dulux commissioned illustrators to paint city murals in a bid to demonstrate how colour can transform surroundings. The campaign, called ‘Colour Britain’, comprises a series of eight murals and artworks hand-painted onto canvases in town squares. They are designed to celebrate stories of history, heritage, colour and culture from cities across Britain.
