A monument to the legacy of Britain’s tallest mural, 'Big Mother' was painted by British street artist Stik in 2014. It was then removed and framed in 2018 following the demolition of Charles Hocking House, which was its supporting wall. This undeniable piece raises awareness largely to the importance of social housing and more specifically to the community in the West London council tower block. In the same vein, all profits yielded by the surviving section of the mural will be gifted to 'Artification,' a free art program for residents of Charles Hocking House and the surrounding area.
