Chinese New Year

Each year in Cardiff the start of the Chinese New Year is usually marked with a small ceremony either in Riverside, near the Happy Gathering restaurant or even outside the Cardiff City Stadium!

To mark the beginning of the Year of the Sheep an artist has been busy producing some artwork on the streets of Riverside.

The Year of the Sheep started on February 19, 2015 and ends on February 7, 2016, in the Gregorian calendar.
It comes after the Year of the Horse (2014) and before the Year of the Monkey (2016) in the Chinese calendar.

Happy New Year is written in English, Welsh and Chinese on the facility box.

Always great to unearth some genuine street art to commemorate some event or occasion.
Does anyone know who the artist was on these pieces?
