It started as a gathering of like-minded artists in lockdown determined to bring some colour to some of Plymouth’s forgotten corners.
It’s turned into a movement – an ongoing transformation of our city’s spaces that goes far beyond a splash of colour.
Plymouth’s walls are now adorned with emotionally powerful pieces – a living breathing gallery that is quickly earning the city a reputation as a new centre for street art.
During lockdown in 2020, artist Mike Vosper was joined by talented creatives across the city to form “Plymouth Artists Together”. A group of painters, poets and graffiti artists of all ages and backgrounds came together to brighten up the dull and forlorn areas of the city purely for “the love of art”.
Thirty of the city’s artists were challenged to transform and brighten up old BT boxes around Stonehouse by Cliick Community and Plymouth Artists Together, turning the area into an art gallery of sorts.
Sarah Trotter’s colourful box on the corner of Patna Place raises awareness for those who are deaf and hard of hearing with its clever combination of “American, British and Universal sign languages to express love, hope, connection and kindness”.
Along with the BT boxes in Stonehouse, you’ll find a number of large murals, including this incredible piece of spray painted street art by @JoeGreenawayArt on North Road West.
