GRAF­FITI-STYLE WEL­COME

Canal Boat - - News -

A new piece of street art has been un­veiled along the Birm­ing­ham & Faze­ley Canal at Snow Hill Bridge, Birm­ing­ham. Com­mis­sioned by the Canal & River Trust, it was de­signed by street artist David Brown of Nick Cleaver, from the CRT, said: “This sec­tion of canal was look­ing re­ally unloved as it had been con­stantly at­tacked by graf­fiti van­dals. With this new piece of canal art we will hope­fully dis­cour­age peo­ple from spray­ing and in­stead in­spire them to join le­git­i­mate street art or­gan­i­sa­tions where they can cre­ate art­work on des­ig­nated walls along the wa­ter­ways and sur­round­ing ar­eas.”
