An uproar has grown over the inclusion of British artist Marcus Harvey’s massive portrait of child killer Myra Hindley in London’s promotional video showcasing well-known London landmarks.
The painting which was created using the handprints of children to recreate the portrait of the nationally reviled killer who died in prison in 2002, was exhibited at London’s Royal Academy of Art in 1997.
Visit London used the image as part of a montoge to promote London and it’s landmarks of industry, nature & culture.and was played on a loop at a private party in Beijing attended by British politicians, 2012 Olympic officials and British athletes.
Also it was the backdrop of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and London Mayor Boris Johnson’s speech they gave during the party that was transmitted back to the UK.
Visit London defended the video as “a general, three-minute video of London in which an artwork by Marcus Harvey very fleetingly appears.”
