The Brixton murals are a series of murals by local artists in the Brixton area, in London, UK. Most of the murals were funded by Lambeth Council and the Greater London Council after the Brixton riots in 1981.
The murals portray politics, community and ideas. Many are now in a state of disrepair and some are no longer there.
Mural 1 by London Wall Public Art — 1987. Funded by Lambeth Council and the GLC. It features lots of reference to the area such as a bell for Bellefields road and a pile of bricks for Brixton. There is also the symbol of the recreation centre and an old theatre featured in the mural.
