Da Bomb: Empty Shop Windows Used as Canvas for Graff Artists!

It’s the brainchild of graffiti artist Chris Guest and photographer Darren Washington. Using everything from spray cans to life-size cut outs, they are decorating empty shop windows in the town with images of the town’s everyday heroes. The project, which takes its name from a Sex Pistols song, has been funded solely by the British Arts Council. Chris told BBC Radio Stoke: “We noticed there were loads of empty shop windows in Newcastle and wanted to do something about it that showed off our work but also celebrates local people.” [BBC]
