Square deal

As two years of painting on the Millennium Walkway comes to an end local enthusiast Barry Diamond has recorded the whole length of the 200m wall.

He’s painstakingly stitched all the work together into one very long panorama image – here it is in video form to save you scrolling yourself!

Due to Cardiff Council deciding to use The Millennium Walkway for advertising a new street art space has now been allocating in Callaghan Square for local artists to paint on instead.

Nestling among the burgeoning offices and shrubbery is a relatively small concrete wall ready to showcase the talents of Cardiff’s artists.

On one side was this burner from Oner Signs’ Ronny Oner and Resh whereas on the other side was work from Unity/Millmagic.

Both Ronny and Unity campaigned to save the original 200m wall and helped secure this new wall too.

Hopefully setting the green light for more great work to appear here soon.

Some tags are apparent on the other concrete structures nearby but will hopefully be painted on soon.

What a fantastic location for the city’s latest graffiti wall. Well done to everyone involved in getting it sorted.

A new wall is going to be built near the roundabout to provide even more space to paint on soon.

Major thanks to Barry for creating that panorama and to all the artists who continually provide some high quality street art to the city – long may it continue.
