PLAY: Can you unscramble one of Europe's largest murals?

Sunday 19 June 2022


One of Europe's largest murals was unveiled in Jersey this week... but it seems to have got a bit scrambled! Can you help?

Entitled ‘Home’, the mural at Normans celebrates the modern and multicultural place the island has become.

The story behind the mural…

Using the Normans building as a giant canvas, the work is inspired by ArtHouse Jersey's ‘Home’ residency which explored the Polish, Portuguese and Romanian communities' experience of moving to and living here in Jersey.

The artist behind the mural design is Gabriel Pitcher, who was selected following a callout to international street artists. 

The final mural depicts an image of a celebration. This is supposed to signify a celebration of the attitude of a resilient demographic who are hard-working and investing in a brighter future whilst remaining optimistic. 

The joyful celebration of seven people of Madeiran, Polish and Romanian heritage around a table depicts a less than ideal and slightly claustrophobic atmosphere and surroundings. The image aims to give insight into the sacrifices so many people choose to make in order to make Jersey their home.
