Due to other commitments on Saturday and Sunday, today (Friday) was the only opportunity I had to get to Blackpool to see Sun, Sea and Spray 2012. This is a major urban art weekend. If you can get up to Blackpool over the weekend then do so. You can always pretend you’re going to see Elton John if necessary!
Unfortunately most of the artists were still at the sketching out stage, though some were well on with their work. These lads were from Croatia. The gentleman with the sketch on the A4 acetate was directing the two on the cherry picker.
This gentleman was from France. He was the only artist I saw with stencils.
Three gentlemen from Birmingham were painting a huge gable end near the South Shore. (Unfortunately, there was rain on the camera lens.)
The gentleman who was right at the top found it very difficult to spray at first because his hand was shaking so much because of the height.
Some work was going on at the North Pier.
There was also a lot of activity at the back of the Winter Gardens.
All of this urban art was organised by Robin Ross, a legend!
