And here is the finished version - on display in Broadgate next to Lady G for today only (5 July). Not sure what they are going to do with it - will possibly be donated to a local hospital to display permanently. Thumbs up

A mix of tags - some better than others - and a couple of impressive bits of art in amongst them. Looks like some Polish artists have contributed at the Black Pad end. Thumbs up

Save it to Saved it! ... the earliest bit of "street art" I remember seeing in the city was at Starley Road in the late 1970s. Thumbs up

DANK (Dan Kitchener) is creating a slice of Japan at Well Street / Bishop Street. A Coventry built taxi is at the heart of the mural. He's a big hitter on the street art scene so great to have him working here. Had a good chat with him; especially about his murals in the Shankill area of Belfast where I lived for a while. I'd actually posted a pic of one of them in the main Coventry cultural / arts fb group and posed the question about Cov getting a taxi themed mural ... lo and behold just over a month later and here he is painting a mural with a taxi in it Lol This one should be finished tomorrow (Sat 7 August) but deffo by Sunday. Elsewhere there is a HUGE mural going up on the wall of the New Union Street car park - the part closest to the dome / ring road. That is being done by NOMAD CLAN and features a burning pocket watch at the heart of it. Again, should be finished this weekend. Will film them both again when finished. At least 6 more murals in City Centre locations are coming soon including one on the side of the West Indian Club in Spon Street which will celebrate Afro-Caribbean culture Thumbs up Edited by member, 6th Aug 2021 7:56 pm

Super artwork there, by obviously extremely talented artists. And you, too, BrotherJoybert, are obviously having a very positive effect for our City of Culture year. Cheers
