New artworks brighten our stations
Passengers travelling at Grays and Rainham stations have had their daily commutes brightened with the installation of new art murals at each of the stations by National Express train operator c2c.
At Rainham station new murals have been painted on each platform, depicting a sunny Rainham landscape on one side, and a c2c train on the other. The design was chosen following a public competition to design the mural, which was won by Niti Kaewbenjakarn, 23.
At Grays station a new mural has been painted onto the safety glass next to the booking office on the London-bound platform, greeting passengers boarding at the station with a display of the different local landmarks from across the c2c route.
Cassie Sutton, c2c Group Station Manager for both Rainham and Grays stations, said: “These murals help brighten up both stations, and really make them stand out. The reaction from our customers so far has been excellent – they really put smiles on people’s faces when they see them.”
Niti Kaewbenjakarn, who won the competition to design the Rainham mural, said: “I'm extremely honoured to have my work displayed for everyone to see at Rainham station. My inspiration came from wanting the people travelling past the town to know that there are beautiful churches and buildings in Rainham they could visit.”
