NEW Street Art Wall

Leigh-on-Sea Town Council are extremely pleased to announce a new “Leigh Street Art Wall” has been launched at Leigh Skate Park in collaboration with Scott Irving of Brave Arts.

Scott has been a street artist for over 25 years and has taught the techniques, history and culture of the artform for the last two decades. He believes that street art gives young people the chance to express themselves and be creative. Designs often carry a lot of emotion and the whole culture can be entangled in the artwork.

He often painted the original wall at the Skate Park some 25 years ago, and used this as a springboard to launch his career in the arts. When the Skate Park was refurbished last year, he approached Leigh Town Council to re-instate a street art wall, to give young people a creative outlet in a safe and legal way.

The Town Council hope that this will be a fantastic ever-changing community art project for young people in Leigh and will also help to boost tourism.

On Sunday 11th July four of the “godfathers of Southend Street Art” came together to paint the 70-foot space over 10 hours.
