Winchester Square, Hampshire

"The painted bollards really do bring a smile to people's faces and the collection has turned The Square into a real attraction, it is a joy to paint them."
Jenny Muncaster, The Colour Factory.

Winchester City Council

Project details:
The Square in Winchesters historic city centre is home to many unique local shops and restaurants that have been part of the community for years. Furnitubes supplied The Square with 21 distinctive Cannon Bollards to protect shop fronts and pedestrians from passing vehicles. The Colour Factory Studios were sponsored by Winchester City Council and local businesses to begin to transform these basic bollards into works of art inspired by famous artists and iconic paintings.

Winchester based artists Jenny Muncaster and Rachael Alexander were given the opportunity to design and paint our Cannon bollards to highlight the individuality of The Square and to give Winchester City Centre a unique identity.

The Square is now home to twenty one uniquely painted bollards all inspired by local communities, iconic works of art and famous artists. Famous paintings replicated on the bollards include the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and the distinctive work of Picasso, Matisse and Klimt. In addition, local residents and members of the community groups have also helped to create designs for some of the bollards. Where the painted bollards were sponsored by businesses, the artists created designs to reflect or relate to the nature of the business, whilst still adding to the sense of diversity. An example of this is the bollard painted in the style of Sir Peter Blake; his iconic and nostalgic imagery of British and American popular culture reflected Jamie Oliver's and Chris Bianco's Union Jack Restaurant perfectly.
