Wild art life

Standing proudly near Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium is one of the city’s legal graffiti walls which attracts a whole host of talented work throughout the year. (football permitting!)

The wall is usually a showcase for the city’s writers and artists but on this occasion local artist, Unity Millimagic, was joined by 170 school children to assist in painting a large portion of the famous landmark.

Such a colourful wall with nature featuring heavily throughout including ladybirds, bees, wasps and dandelions.

Close up you can see individual paint strokes on their designs within each letter.

With kids being involved it seems not all of the paint ended up just in the intended areas! #loveit

It’s always good to see a few references to Cardiff thrown in for good measure too with those bluebirds flying high and a seagull taking centre stage eyeing up more chips on Caroline Street.
