Brewers were delighted to provide 70L of Albany Masonry Paint to the Worcester Paint Festival who once again have added a new collection of amazing murals across Worcester for the 2023 festival. This year the festival doubled up with a new, co-curated exhibition, ‘Paint the Streets’, showing the history of UK graffiti and street art history as well as rare and well-known pieces of original artwork, including Banksy and Goldie, alongside Worcester archives.
There are twenty-two new pieces of art to be found, plus another twenty on the legal wall out at Sixways, new for 2023. You can grab yourself a map and explore the diverse styles Worcester Paint Festival have curated for this latest edition.
Kate Cox, Worcester Paint Festival Director said, “We are pleased with the range of new work installed across the city and hope that you all enjoy them. They will be on display for a long time yet, and the exhibition runs until Jan 2024 so you have plenty of time to get out and about! Big thanks to everyone who made it happen this year.”
