Long Walk to Freedom

14 Jul
It’s been a while since I had walked down the lower end of High Street which I have shown before to have an empty plot awaiting the construction of an umpteen storey hotel. The site had a dismal security fence with the usual warnings for those who would misbehave. So it was something of a pleasant surprise to come across this colourful mural to Nelson Mandela which apparently went up last September. Don’t know how I’ve missed this ’til now. 

Finally credit where credit is due. This was commissioned by Full Flava Arts along with Roots and Wings and Freedom Festival Ltd and it’s the work of twelve graffiti artists. You can view the creation of the mural and get a much fuller view than I present here by going to this page.
