Alex Oliver recently moved to Portsmouth and in his own words was more than a little surprised by the creative activity in our small island city:
“I am overwhelmed by the sheer volume of local art, artists and creative types in what I always assumed was a rather ‘low-key’ city. Inspired by the street art I’ve seen in and around the city I thought I might see if I could add to it…”
Alex’s contribution was to paint the front of his house and change it from it’s usual, Portsmouth uniform terrace self in to something colourful and full of character. We’re loving this mural and with Porter’s Row it all helps brighten up the streets of the city & reflects the colour and personality of the people that live here.
Great piece of art will have to keep an eye our for it.
Shame there’s no text on it, pretty cool though!
Saw it the other day, down near lower brookfield street, looks cool
brilliant. I was in Brighton at the weekend, and they have some fantastic street art in dirty boring back streets, we need more of this in Pompey.
Wow! Hope you signed it “Talent woz ear” :o)
Wow! That has really spiced things up a bit! Looks great! Definitely a refreshing change to the usual boredom of bricks and mortar! 🙂
