The jam that keeps on giving

Back in October 2014 the Empty Walls Street Jam took place with artists and writers arriving from all across Cardiff with some further afield from Bristol and Birmingham – all primed ready to paint on the hoardings surrounding the vacant Western Mail and Echo site near the Millennium Stadium.

Unfortunately due to high winds in January 2015 a portion of the display was wrecked and later removed.

New hoardings were then erected, painted grey and once again proved a great canvas for more artists to paint on.

First up is this bright and colourful work from CMK and Refa featuring a dope character wearing um… is that really a gimp mask?! o_O
