The Empty Walls Street Jam invited a host of local street artists to paint on some hoardings near the Millennium Stadium as part of the larger Empty Walls festival held in 2014. Nearly every inch of the rotting hoardings were painted on apart from one section that never got much attention at the official event …….. until now!
Painting on the flaking white canvas Spk had created a colourful character in yellow and red striped attire carrying a smaller creature on his back whilst grasping that pole! The spinning disk at the top didn’t survive that long mind!
Set in the shadow of Millennium Stadium the blue winklepicker wearing character supports the pole whilst also supporting the younger member in their back sack. (A back sack? Really?)
Glancing towards The Abacus and Kera’s work from The Empty Walls Festival it wasn’t just the spinning disk that vanished as the whole piece didn’t last much longer either.
It seems Spk’s work was whitewashed over then later on some taggers used the spot for their own work too. Also a message was left to ‘the fool’ who whitewashed the wall! Anyone know what the full story is here?
