Rotunda KIFF Mural, in support of Kingston International Film Festival

We are excited to have partnered with local artist Sky High and KIFF to bring an exciting piece of artwork to Rotunda.

In support of the Kingston International Film Festival (KIFF), Sky High’s mural sits proudly on outside the ODEON.

Who is the artist?

Sky High is a local street artist in Kingston upon Thames with a background in Graffiti, Street Art and Mural painting. Sky High’s community artwork can be found in Tolworth, Norbiton, Croydon, Hoxton and Kingston and draws upon local culture, nature and art themes.

The mural brings together a cumulation of everything that makes Kingston upon Thames a destination for culture, art, film, and creative talent.

In an aim to support the next generation of filmmakers, creators and innovators Rotunda partnered with KIFF to bring the world of arts and entertainment together and to provide space for local talent to emerge and grow.

Taking you on a pictorial journey through the film reel, the mural is a visual representation of the contemporary and cultural heritage in Kingston upon Thames and highlights some of the key makeup of the borough.
