Topolski Century information
Within the arches below Hungerford Bridge is the lifework of one Feliks Topolski (1907–89), a Polish-born British artist who painted mural after mural on board and canvas (with Dulux paint, no less) more than 180m long, which trace the history of the 20th century from the artist’s early life in bohemian Warsaw to his death in 1989. The murals may not be everyone’s cup of tea and the artistic merits of much of the work is questionable, but it’s interesting to see how one man viewed the world during a lifetime of more than eight decades.
