Tybalds Estate





Sara Abdalla's hand painted Mural is a representation of the diverse mix of people living in the Tybalds housing Estate in Holborn Central London. The Mural's vibrant colours and shapes bring positivity and cheer reflecting the community, diversity and multiculturalism that make London and Britain Great.

Sara Abdalla is Founder of Creative Visionaries studio and the Director of design brand Cape to Cairo Collective. She is a multidisciplinary Scottish Egyptian Mural Artist, Maker, Activist and Teacher with hand painting, relief printing, photography, type and collage to communicate the narrative. She started Creative Visionaries Studio, a local community interest group that provides access to Arts & Crafts workshops for marginalised and underrepresented youth. Their aim is for young people from disadvantaged social and economic backgrounds to have a safe space to explore, engage, learn and create. Cape to Cairo Collective make handcrafted bespoke eco conscious contemporary design, reflecting her British and African cultural heritage. She creates geometric abstract textures and bold shapes. Expressive, vibrant colours and a nod to my chaotic cultural bricolage are my signature style Since 2010 Creative Visionaries Studio has exhibited work in the U.K, U.S and Nigeria. The Graffiti walls, titled Revolution! Why Bother? occupied public spaces around London such as the TATE Modern. People came throughout the day to leave a message for a better world. Many of the works become public displays for everyone to access.
