Wondered what urban art is doing inside the old Past Times shop on the corner of Fishergate and Glover’s Court?
It’s a ‘pop-up’ street art shop window from Uthink.
Uthink asks ‘Why Graffiti and Art?’
Well, it’s fun and kids enjoy it. It can also help young people to positively engage with their communities and start contributing to the creative economy.
Urban art, or graffiti, has been used through the ages by artists to document the social claims of societies since the dawn of time.
Young people have now developed styles that some describe as masterpieces of modern art.
Uthink runs bespoke courses for young people of all ages and abilities looking at the legality of graffiti encouraging them to follow a legal path.
Uthink Artists have many years of experience and work with the young to help them understand the impact their work has on the community and creates legal spaces for those artists to express themselves sage and secure from prosecution.
They run courses teaching how to create wall masterpieces. No qualifications or previous arts skills are required.
