The leading maritime charity Seafarers UK successfully launched
its Seafarers Awareness Week campaign in early June with the
unveiling of a specially commissioned piece of artwork by 3D
pavement artists Max Lowry and Joe Hill, at Paternoster Square
in London, UK.
As can be seen from the image shown, the artwork uses
clever distortion techniques to give the impression of a ship
sailing below the city streets.
Visitors can have their photograph taken on the artwork and
there are props available to make the photos unique.
The 3D artwork is part of the charity’s Seafarers Awareness

plight of seafarers in the UK and the Commonwealth.
The artwork was also displayed at two other London
locations during the week, at Exchange Square, near Liverpool
Street station and Carnaby Street, near Oxford Street station.
Seafarers UK is the new name for King George’s Fund for

umbrella organization that awards grants to other maritime
