Plymouth Street Art – September 2021

During the summer, more and more incredible artwork has appeared on buildings and hoardings across Plymouth, from Millbay to Honicknowle, and everywhere in between.

We made the most of the early autumn sunshine to get out and about in search of the latest additions to the city’s Street Art scene.

The Lockdown Gallery began as a coming-together of artists across the city as means of escape from the restraints of lockdown in 2020, providing a creative outlet for those involved.

Artists young and old, painters, spray artists and poets completed pieces for Plymouth Artists Together – a group established by Mike Vosper, in what became a living, breathing art movement.

The latest area to receive the Plymouth Artists Together treatment is Honicknowle Green in the north of the city. Attracting artists from as far afield as London in the form of @Atila_8T4 whose vibrant work alongside others including @Spray.Saint and @JCampbellPlover stands out against the backdrop of houses.

Following the tragic shooting of Plymouth residents in Keyham on August 12th 2021, five green hearts were added to @JoeGreenawayArt’s hyper realistic piece in memorial to the victims.

We finished our day with a visit to Palace Square on Union Street to experience IGNITE’s ‘*Your Work Here’ gallery and Will Luz’s stunning, larger-than-life mural on Union Corner (you can read all about it here).
