About a year before the pandemic a council estate next to where I live was being flattened to make way for ‘Affordable Housing’. All those empty homes attracted vandals who decided they would help with the demolishing. Lighting fires, causing havoc and general mayhem….

Then some bright spark had a good idea… Let professional graffiti artists go to work on the houses…

The results were fantastic…

Guess what? The vandalism stopped…

It was very strange, walking around those quiet empty streets….

A great outdoor art exhibition, certainly one of the biggest…

It’s all gone now, ready for the new build…

But for a while there, it was a thing of beauty…

  1. I absolutely LOVE the graffiti! So sorry it’s gone now, but at least you have the pictures. Are you familiar with Banksy? I’ve done a couple of posts about him and his graffiti art … amazing artist!

    1. It was brilliant…and weird at the same time! Yes Hull has a Banksy. It’s called ‘Draw the raised bridge’ and it was actually on the side of disused bridge. He work is amazing.
