New mural brightens up Pontprennau subway

pontprennau mural

A huge mural designed to cover up graffiti and bring together members of the community has been completed in a city subway.

The project, on Church Road, Pontprennau, was led by community arts charity People Around Here.

The group collected designs from local school children, residents, youth groups and the police.

The ideas were brought together into a final design by artists Bill Taylor-Beales and Mark Alexander.

The design, which features eight trucks bearing an image of one of the community groups, brings together the biodiversity of the countryside and wildlife of Pontprennau with the diversity of community life.

Mr Taylor-Beales said: “When areas are left covered with graffiti it creates an invitation for more crime, such as fly-tipping.

“This mural sends a very clear message that this area belongs to the whole community to enjoy.”

The mural was painted over five days with the help of the primary schools, local police and 25 volunteers from the local community.
