Graffiti Modified Design

Here are some shots from the GM design Graduation for budding steet artists on Thursday 5 April 2012. There were some seriously impressed amateur (and some not so amateur) art critics with the work that the youths have turned out. Thanks to our Mayor Nick Leggett for turning up and seeing the work these guys have created over the last couple of months. There were some happy lads who made sales of their work on the night and some impressed cops and shop owners.

The "shark and tatties" picture behind the meal we had for the night (courtesy of the opportunity centre team) will be going up on one of the the Cannons Creek shop front (no prizes for guessing which one) replacing some of the tagging that a few of these lads have been responsible for. - a pretty cool result. well done to the GM design team.
