As a total contrast to inviting big name street artists to the city to take part in the Empty Walls festival there was a need to involve some of the local artists and taggers to showcase some of their work too.
This is where the Empty Walls Street Jam came in inviting a whole host of artists along near the Millennium Stadium.
Set on some rotting wooden hoardings which line the vacant site of the old South Wales Echo offices in the heart of the city centre – this was a great event for everyone to paint together.
Starting early on Saturday morning artists began arriving from across Cardiff with some also from Birmingham and Bristol too.
This particular section was painted by Amok, Smak, Amoe and others with a big thank you to Leighton Jones for capturing some of the artists in action.
Some bad weather hit Cardiff overnight on 9th January, 2015 – resulting in some damage to this part of the street jam display.
A long section of wooden hoardings had been ripped from their mounts and thrown onto the nearby pavement.
Workmen attended during the day to make safe the area and remove debris from the pavement.
All debris had been moved into the vacant space left by the demolition of the old South Wales Echo building but not particularly secured down at all. As most boards still seem fully intact we hope they erected again to complete the street jam display.
