A decommissioned cruise liner marooned in the Dee Estuary in Flintshire has become the home to a range of urban artwork murals.
A closed down cruise ship has been turned into a work of art after it was decorated by street artists. The ship is called The Duke of Lancaster and it has been docked in North Wales since 1979.
Street artists from across Europe have painted their bright and unusual designs on the ship's hull. Some of the work was completed at night. This design is called the Council of Monkeys.
The street artists have names like Zombie, Bungle and The Cream Soda Crew. Some of the works express an opinion about modern life.
Eduk the Diver is the largest work on the ship so far. It was created by The Cream Soda Crew and is about 18 metres high!
This design is called Mauricamia and is on an area of the ship which can't be seen from the coastal road. The artists hope it will be seen by more people if the ship is opened to the public. Images by Annar 50.
