New Card - Confidential!

There's a new SPA card out today and for obvious reasons the artist will remain confidential... how intriguing!

You can collect a free limited edition postcard from The Museum of Lancashire, The Conti Pub, The Pavilion in Avenham Park, the Tourist Info Centre, Scene on Friargate and Wonderland on Friargate too.

The postcard image shows only a section of the full artwork located somewhere within Preston city centre.

This work is part of an ongoing, unspoken dialogue between the artist and the authorities concerning their policy on the 'removal' of graffiti.

In subtle reference to 3D lettering, the simple addition to these blocks of painted 'censorship' calls into question the aim of the policy. Who is the offender/defender of the space?

The artwork has already been painted over and no longer exists -  with the blocks of black paint expanding to cover it. Such is the ephemeral nature of graffiti.

All the free cards have gone into the venues listed above - so go and collect one before they all get snapped up.
