GRAFFITI APPEARS ON THE FRONT OF PENARTH TOWN COUNCIL’S HQ

Passers by could be forgiven for thinking Penarth Town Council has suffered an “art-attack” from the local spray-paint vandals who decorate so many other areas of the town

A large Banksy-style graffiti image –  meant to depict the Kymin – has been installed on the outside of West House, Penarth’s Grade II listed headquarters building in Stanwell Road.

The graffiti is the work of the council’s own youth group –  Penarth Youth Action – (PYA) which is said to represent all the young people’s organisations in the town

The “artwork” has been installed on the outer wall of the West House extension

The “mural project ” was created by members of PYA with artists from a local “collective” called “The Hold Up”.

The graffiti panel will be on display outside West House until October 19th and will later be moved to the Vale Youth Services new youth club at Elfed Avenue.
