The Thornton Heath Chronicle’s designer Vân Dang has been chosen to develop the mural on the side of the Hindu Temple.

The council interviewed six artists for the design for the Shree Sakthy Ghanapathy Temple on Brigstock Road.

Vân will work with the local community to fully develop the design from concept to final artwork and have a budget of £5,000. She said: “I am really delighted to have been given this opportunity.”

This is the beautiful elephant design, celebrating the Hindu God Ganesha, Vân is proposing  to create.
