A Blast of Colour in Exmouth Road (Revealed)

A Blast of Colour in Exmouth Road (Revealed)

I live just around the corner from Exmouth Road in Southsea and over the past couple of weeks have noticed most of the houses being transformed. A real ‘wow’ of neon and vivid colours hit you as you leave Albert Road.

Please let us know more about this story. Is this an Albert Road initiative? a council initiative? Would love to see this spread across the city. The classic car’s were a bonus find also.

Edit from Pauls original post:

This is another brain child of James Porter (and friends and a little visual help from myself). One of Southseas most proactive community artists. Other works include the Wallspace sign, which I worked on also, varies paintings above shops and flats along Albert Road, including opposite Head Hairdressing. He always has something new up his sleeve, so watch this space. Tristan.

    Why assume its an initiative. Is the ‘community’ that dead?

    That is what I thought initially that all residents had got together but was informed that some money was put into it. Residents paid half!

    Lets hope it catches on throughout Pompey- great shot and a rather good site. Cheers Grant

    This balances the gross philistinism of the Exmouth Rd residents who campaigned against the Kings car-park. Nice work.

    Looks great now, but after the winter it’s going to look mucky and faded…
