billboard art

Art has come to my part of Belfast. As part of the Art in the Eastside project, art has been splashed over billboards making it accessible to everyone. The project celebrates the people, history, culture and social aspects of East Belfast. There are eight different participating artists in twenty six locations. Makes a nice change from the usual ads.

I took a photo of the  billboard on the Beersbridge Road - "Invasion of the Sock Monkeys" by Katie Blue.

Katie Blue is a Belfast artist who specialises in making art from recycled junk. She makes sculptures, assemblages, prints paintings and of course sock monkeys.
Bye Ali.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. hi anon, no need for knowledge of html. In blogger you just click on "new post" and type away, hope this helps


Id love to hear what you think about my blog, knits etc.
