IMG_3171Had a walk around the town today with the camera and found that there have been lots of new stickers posted in various locations.

I also found a few modifications to Cameron Benefit Thief paint and post in our new open air gallery, the original of which you can see here on Cameron Allee**.

A favourite sticker spot also seems to be down the side of Jack Fulton frozen foods on Ravendale street and again, at the rear of El-Toro Cafe.
Also of note, is that a small sticker has been placed on the emergency exit of Cash Converters where the moonrat “Kill the poor” anti-capitalist stencil was displayed for just a few hours. Rather gutted I personally did not get a picture of this, but there is one in the Scunny Graff facebook group. (more…)

I received an interesting email on Thursday, here it is in full.

Gurnell Street Decorations

 On the 7th of January 2013 Gurnell street will be closed to the public as the bulldozers move in.

It is expected that shortly after, the houses on Gurnell street are set to become heaps of brick, dust, roof tiles and broken fixtures and fittings.

In a modern, throw away society it is considered normal for people to break things down into their different parts and lose sight of the value of the whole.

These houses were not always just houses, they were homes.

For nearly 100 years people have been born in them, died in them, loved in them, laughed in them and cried in them.

On Sunday 6th January members of the community who have lived and grown up with these homes intend to dress them ready to face the bulldozers.

In doing so they hope to hear again the sounds of children laughing and playing echo around the street, we will honour the women and men who through their labour and love turned bricks and mortar into homes.

We will give thanks to those who turned homes into communities and we will remember those who are no longer with us.

We will work together to give these homes a proper send off and hope, in our small part, to be part of rebuilding the kind of community that we would all like for our children.

 

Here’s some photos I took…

Seems one small area in Scunthorpe is being transformed by street artists in to North Lincolnshire’s very own Kunsthaus Tachles art house.

Here’s some photos of Cameron Alley (Allee surely??) located between dunstall street and laneham street.

Some coverage on the local “Hyperlocal” blog site “Visit Scunthorpe” Independent citizen coverage of the north lincolnshire area

David Cameron dressed as a thief  has been painted on the rear wall of Abacus Bar on Scunthorpe high street.

The work is best accessed from down the side of Pearl City Chinese restaurant on Laneham Street.

It’s been created using pre-painted and cut paper and has then been pasted into position by the artist.

I was sent this photo last night, and will visit the site my self over the next few days to get some of my own shots which I will upload on to this page.
