  1. Hull gets new colourful mural addition

    This is the latest mural to appear in Hull as part of an installation of public artworks across the city:

    The mural

    The latest mural has appeared on the side of the new Kings bar and music venue on Market Place in Hull's Old Town as part of a programme showing off art by renowned artists.

    It was painted by Dan Kitchener, who's known as Dank - an internationally-known street artist who has painted all over the world.

    He was asked to come to East Yorkshire by Bankside Gallery - a graffiti collective in Hull.

    Since Bankside Gallery was formed in January 2018, more than 1,000 pieces of graffiti art have been painted legally across the city.

    Gallery staff are now asking people to consider other sites where murals could pop up with landowner permission, with other well-known street artists planning to come to the city to paint in more prominent locations.

    Bankside Gallery says its mission is to help regenerate Hull using street art as the tool – while also making the city more colourful.

    It also wants to provide opportunities for artists to get their work seen and provide a free and accessible attraction for the public.
