Outdoor art in Hull

A usual Monday today. Crafty Club till 12 noon, then coffee with a friend, two coffees actually, and a very long natter. When I got home in the middle of the afternoon I had a very late lunch, so that made my evening dinner late as well. I did a quick one, a pot of frozen chopped onions, half a tin of chick peas, and a packet of rice noodles. In a pan with a spot of oil and seasoning.

I took a few outdoor photo's in Hull last week, of some very colourful and arty graffiti. I walked over the Drypool Bridge, even that looked cheerful in the sunlight.



I think there's some talented artists here. I'd love to watch them do this. I think it must be difficult with spray paint.

View from the bridge.



I'd like to see a lot more of this kind of art, it looks so cheerful.   ilona

  1. My comment is in response to just viewing your recent video about making things out of plastic. Sorry--it asks me to agree to something and create a channel in order to comment. I don't think so... Anyway. You are an incredible folk artist. In the right market/niche you may have to change the name "Life After Money" to "Life after being discovered as a folk artist". BRAVO. What an inspiration.

  2. I dont mind graffiti if it is done in an artistic way like this.I got back from my break in Brighton last night and you see loads of it down there.Its the mindless scribbles,with a few swear words thrown in that I dont like.When a new fencing was erected down a long walk way near my sisters house,some idiot couldnt resist spoiling it by doing the odd word with his spray can.But the stuff in Brighton looked great!..Talking of Brighton,we had a brilliant time!The weather was bright n breezy and we walked about 20 miles while we were there.I couldnt resist buying a 70s purple velvet maxi dress from a charity shop and some green DocMartins from the car boot at the Marina.Bang goes my not buying anything for a year!!xx

  5. Loved the graffiti - I've not seen those particular ones but then I didn't go looking. I was on 'Bankside' the other day and there was a lot down there. Also there's more next to the 'Banksie' Bridge. They have plans to take the bridge down now as it's in a dangerous condition but will preserve the Banksie artwork.

    1. Hi. I didn't venture any further afield to see more graffiti because it was so windy and cold.
