Cross Lane Projects is delighted to unveil a new piece of art, created by Alex Giles.

The striking new outdoor painting is the latest edition to Cross Lane Projects’ free contemporary art offering in Kendal town centre.

Located on the side of a building adjacent to the gallery, the painting is composed of large circular forms on a geometric backdrop.

The artist behind the work is Manchester based artist Alex Giles, who is best known for his bold, multi-coloured vibrant paintings.

The project is the brainchild of the gallery director Rebecca Scott, who commissioned the artist to create a piece of artwork creating colour outside the former Kendal Mint Cake factory and bring art for all into the local community.

The aim of the mural is to guide passers-by to the gallery, and provide escapism from the strange times we are living in.

After a challenging year, the gallery is looking forward to welcoming back visitors and relaunching an ambitious programme of contemporary art in Kendal.  An immersive solo exhibition by Mark Woods opens 23 July at the gallery and will continue through to 18 September.
