You can be part of Portsmouth’s most famous public artwork


The Strand is a living mural and is constantly evolving. Vital maintenance and updates take place over the spring and summer period each year – and this is when additions to the mural are made. And for just a small fee – people and businesses from Portsmouth can become part of this living landmark.

Personal additions – from £50

£50 qualifies you to be immortalised by being painted into the mural, anywhere within the main map boundary. I will need a photo showing your face to capture your likeness, along with a full-body photo that shows your stance and favourite outfit. We will then agree on approximate location within the map – and you will be added during the next maintenance period.

Business and larger additions – from £150

Businesses can add their premises, or perhaps a vehicle branded with logo and business name. We can also add images of people sailing in the Solent, driving their fantasy car – or creative memorials for loved ones for an unbeatable birthday surprise. We limited only by our imaginations!

So what’s next?

If you’d like to go ahead and become part of the mural, email me on with the photos discussed above,  and the details of what you are looking for.

Each commission is highly individual, and will require some discussion in order to arrive at an agreed solution. Once agreed, payment can be made by BACS/ Bank transfer or by using the PayPal button below.

Our bank details are available on request, otherwise commission fees  – or donations – can be made using this PayPal link.

Include your email so we can discuss how you’ll be depicted in Portsmouth’s largest artwork!
