Crown Paints have played a pivotal part in helping Hull fulfil its role as the UK City of Culture 2017.

They have provided products for a range of eye-catching projects throughout the city to add colour and leave a lasting impact on the region.

Ellis Mudd, Site Manager at Crown Paints Hull manufacturing centre, said: “As a company, we are all so proud of Hull and its achievements in this landmark year.

“It’s been a superb project for us to be involved in and we are delighted to be playing a part.”

One project which showcases Crown’s impact is the World’s Favourite Colour initiative, whereby an international audience was asked what the world’s favourite colour was.

30,000 submissions were received from more than 100 countries via an online poll and it was a rich teal shade that was selected as the global favourite.

To celebrate the colour choice, which has been named Marrs Green, a pop-up shop exhibition was set-up in the heart of Hull to showcase the stunning colour.

Exhibitions are a key feature in the Hull 2017 programme and a hub for contemporary art has been the Humber Street Gallery, which champions the area’s thriving visual arts scene and reinforces the message that contemporary arts and culture are for everyone.

One of the most striking projects involving Crown Paints takes art outdoors, with huge murals in the historic old fishing area of Hessle Road putting colour, heritage and a passion for the city firmly on the map.

Sandtex Trade masonry paint – part of the Crown Paints’ family – has been used to create two end of terrace house murals, which celebrate the community’s rich fishing history.

Representing a wonderful addition to the city streetscape, the murals will leave a lasting legacy for the city.
