Tyne Wave is a vibrant mosaic ceramic panel depicting scenes from the North East. The artist worked closely with over 700 local people giving them the opportunity to design a ceramic tile based on what they enjoy about the North East.
These tiles provided the inspiration for the artwork, many of which included the bridges across the Tyne, the Angel of the North and The New MetroLand indoor theme park at MetroCentre. The River Tyne provides the continual theme throughout the panel, illustrating the rolling and sweeping waves decorated with colourful fish.
The panel is 11.2 metres long and 2.4 metres high and enhances the entrance to The Red Mall from the multi-storey car park.
