Aylesbury


Laura Boswell’s creation for the newly refurbished walls of Aylesbury Bus Station is Europe’s largest piece of original enamelled panel artwork. The vibrant mural of rolling hills and patchwork fields has transformed a once plain, dimly lit underpass. The piece draws inspiration from the landscapes of Aylesbury Vale and lines the sides of Great Western Street, leading into the bus station.

Laura Boswell’s work was commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council following a successful bid by AVDC to Arts Council England for The Art Plus 2007 Award Scheme for art in public places.

In an unusual twist to the project Laura hand applied her proposed design directly onto the cladding. Not only did this prove more cost effective and economical than a traditional screenprinting method but Buckinghamshire County Council were essentially buying a completely unique artwork for the district.
