The Empty Walls Festival is a month long street art event aiming to bring colour, culture and vibrancy to the city of Cardiff – with artists travelling in from Germany, Italy, Spain and France and also closer to home from London, Bristol and Cardiff. It’s not entirely clear whether this was an intended part of the festival or not but a great addition to the city!

Taking inspiration from the Japanese tv series Monkey this piece features all the main characters including Monkey and Pigsy!
The tv series only ran over a couple of years in Japan but was shown many times throughout the 1980’s in the United Kingdom.
