JUDO ROOM MURAL REVEAL,

Once again another amazing piece of artwork produced by Felix of UltraKolor Art studio in our judo room. The mural depicts great martial arts legends and the faces of inspirational people.
Mr David Lammy MP for Tottenham Unveils Newly Decorated Sports Centre Judo Room.
The Judo Room on the first floor of Tottenham Community Sports Centre was in much need of maintenance and decoration. The judo room is used by a range of community clubs/groups who train in various Martial Arts disciplines which includes boxing.
Local arts organisation UltraKolor were commissioned to paint a mural on the theme of martial arts that uplifts and engages the public and motivates the users of the space. The art work will be a celebration of sport with an aim to merge key figures in history with present day fighters as well as incorporating empowering quotes and contemporary artistic styles.
To engage Young People from the community by involving them in a creative project that offers a way to contribute to their local area.
To educate visitors about different martial arts disciplines and past athletes who have made an
impact within their chosen sport. Also to support local artists by collaborating on a public artwork that will be shared and enjoyed by the community.
The lead artist, Felix Stochaj worked with Tottenham Community Sports Centre Trustees to create a mural design and invited young people from the local area to help complete the artwork and gain paid work experience by contributing to the project.
The artwork was funded by Haringey Council courtesy of Philippine Nguyen.
