For you to find, a new Secret Preston Art postcard out in the city.

Looking at the subject matter, for obvious reasons the artist remains confidential.

The limited edition art cards can be found as usual at The Museum of Lancashire, The Continental Pub, The Avenham Park Pavilion, Scene and Wonderland both on Friargate and Preston’s Tourist Information Centre.

The image on the card shows part of the full artwork to be found somewhere within Preston city centre.

From the Secret Preston Art website: “The work is part of an ongoing, unspoken dialogue between the artist and the authorities concerning their policy on the ‘removal’ of graffiti.


In subtle reference to 3D lettering, the simple addition to these blocks of painted ‘censorship’ calls into question the aim of the policy. Who is the offender/defender of the space?

The artwork has already been painted over and no longer exists – with the blocks of black paint expanding to cover it. Such is the ephemeral nature of graffiti.”

Previous art cards were quickly snapped up so try and collect yours before they all go.
