Empty Walls 2014: Owl be watching you

Empty Walls 2014: Best, Peaceful ProgressA dark, uninviting corner of Cardiff overlooking the sorry state of a bus station within a much unloved part of the city.
This part of Cardiff is the latest in line for development and the latest in line for some fantastic street art!

As Cardiff’s street art festival draws to an end – local artists took to this wall and added their latest creation as part of The Empty Walls Festival.

The month long festival aims to bring colour, culture and vibrancy to the city with artists travelling in from Germany, Italy, Montevideo, Spain and France and closer to home from London, Bristol and Cardiff too.”

A striking owl has been painted here complete with piercing orange eyes!
Inspiration has been taken from The Mabinogi and features the character ‘Blodeuwedd’.

The Four Branches of the Mabinogi is the name of a quartet of short stories written in the Welsh language – generally recognised to be one of the oldest and most complete repositories of British Celtic Myth, as well as a masterpiece of medieval story-telling in it’s own right.

The event has certainly injected some colour to some of the drabbest corners of the city with this black canvas just off Wood Street being the latest canvas for artists Peaceful Progress, Best, Sinstars and ILC.
