Graffiti artwork on show at NRM
8:52am Wednesday 8th August 2012 in News
A SWATHE of graffiti has appeared at one of York’s biggest tourist attractions, thanks to a team of artists.
The Graffiti Kings have spent two weeks creating a selection of street art to be hung around the National Railway Museum, using paints donated by Humbrol.
Darren Cullen, from the Graffiti Kings, said: “Working at the NRM over the last week running our Street Art workshops has been really great. The people taking part are really getting creative, who knows, we may even find a new member to our Graffiti Kings team.”
Zoe Roberts, developer of public programmes, said: “We’ve really enjoyed working with the Graffiti Kings on such an exciting project.
“This striking artwork has not only enabled us to engage with our visitors in a completely new way, but it has allowed items from our collection to be viewed from a very different and unique perspective.”
