the Duke is a beached ship. Street artists are painting it and want it to be an outdoor art gallery.

We have street in Bristol that is used in the same way. It's by the old magistrates court and the police station?

It's Nelson street if you want to google it.

It goes to show that graffiti artists are real artists and not vandals doesn't it. All they need is the right 'canvas'

Conceptually I like the idea, although don't like the graffiti art form from a visual perspective - (probably because my youngest son engaged in 'night-art' for a while ) - but it does have a social voice and better there than random public spaces. Hands up to the Council of Monkeys though.
