The incredible street-art that's brightening up Newport
NEWPORT has seen an explosion of brilliant street art in recent months.
Murals have been popping up in various locations across the city almost weekly and it’s clear that the art scene here is gaining real momentum.
So, is Newport becoming a match for the type of street art we’re used to seeing in its larger neighbours of Cardiff and Bristol? Judging on what we’ve seen so far, yes – absolutely.
People’s response to the recent wave of street art has been overwhelmingly positive – with many feeling it makes a real difference to the area and injects pride into the city.
