A TALENTED artist who has displayed his work on the world stage has been brought on board to help decorate large bird sculptures at a historic estate near Worcester.

The celebrated artist MrASingh has been appointed to work on the sculptures at Croome near High Green.

A spokesperson for the National Trust said: "We're pleased to announce that after an artist open call, we've appointed the very talented MrASingh to work with us, and seven local community groups to decorate large bird sculptures for our Seven Birds of Croome parkland installation and Christmas family trail.

"If you've seen brightly coloured sculptures dotted around cities (Elephants in Worcester, Bears in Birmingham), it's extremely likely you've seen MrASingh's work.

"The project responds to our Looking Closely theme and the Thomas Bewick and Marcus Coates exhibitions in the House in vibrant and colourful interpretations of Croome dotted throughout the parkland and bringing plenty of Christmas cheer along the way."

MrASingh is described on his website as a 'multi-award winning artist and content creator and inspirational public speaker from Birmingham'.

MrASingh's globally acclaimed work has been showcased in 40-plus exhibitions at venues like The Wallace Collection and Trafalgar Square.

Croome was landscape designer and architect Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s first large-scale commission and is often described as his 'first and favourite child'.

He swept away the local village, which was in view of the house, and rebuilt it further away shrouded by tree planting. He removed Croome’s Medieval church and created a new Gothic church overlooking the park.
