Grenfell Tower

London's Burning

Grenfell Tower | 2017As the nation rallies around to help all those affected by the devastating fire at the Grenfell Tower in London – many people want to express their feelings in a number of ways.

Some are helping out in the community, some providing food and shelter whereas others are taking to the streets to paint to express their feeling on the tragedy and what has happened since.

In Cardiff local based artist Oner has taken to a wall in Callaghan Square to paint a tribute and express his views on the disaster.

The work contains the large letters of ‘Grenfell’ along with hard hitting phrase ‘The Grenfell Murders’ – feelings are running high and someone is responsible for these unecessary deaths where the truth and justice needs to prevail and find those responsible.

Initial reactions have now changed to political swipes at the Prime Minister Theresea May whom has visited the site on a couple of occasions which have not necessarily gone down well in the local communities.
