Giant England Rugby Player Murals Created at Twickenham Stadium
Fans attending England's first home game of the Guinness Six Nations against Wales (Saturday 26 February KO 16.45) will be greeted by two newly-created meters-high murals of players in both the England Rugby men's and women's teams.
The murals, created by England Rugby licensee, MurWalls, tower
almost 10 meters high on the side of Twickenham's West Stand. A
group of Murwalls artists spent
a week painting the murals which feature three England men's and
three England Women's players.
A film showing the creation of the artwork has been produced by Red Five Films.
RFU commercial partnership director, Rob Grenville-Jones said: "MurWalls has created two incredibly eye-catching pieces of art, celebrating six of our players, that will be seen by thousands entering the stadium on match day.
"MurWalls works with many global brands, including a number of high-profile sports clubs, and we knew they would create imposing and impressive work, that would strike a visual punch. Limited edition print-sized versions of this art will be available in due course with further details to follow."
