M+R produce large scale site-specific artwork. Their projects have been reviewed as 'groundbreaking' by the Arts Council and received high profile critical acclaim including an International Civic Trust Award for 'Light Lines'.
The studio is a collaboration between artists Neil Musson and Jono Retallick who trained at the Royal College of Art and Winchester School of Art respectively. The duo share a desire to see artistic stories woven into architecture and public spaces to enhance a sense of community and belonging.
Journeys through time, emotion and landscape are central themes behind the artworks while concepts begin with historical and social research to fully understand a site. M+R has a wealth of experience producing thought provoking artwork including commissions for airports, hospitals, schools, galleries, hotels, churches, museums, public spaces and major events including the Olympics.
In addition to their portfolio of built projects, M+R work with the Sorrell Foundation charity to ensure that young people have the opportunity to experience art above and beyond schools curriculum. M+R are also public speakers, consultants, judges for international arts competitions and deliver CPD training to architectural practices.
