Barbers Alley gets a Pyklops street artist mural this weekend!

We are delighted that The Mix youth club (1A Cumberland Road, Plaistow) are working with famed street artist Pyklops street artist this weekend as a collaboration for the second mural in Barbers Alley.  It’s a piece of work for the Newham Word Festival and Pyklops and the youth group have been working with wordsmith Charlie Dark

The Barbers Alley design is a secret, but all will be revealed on Saturday 🙂

Feel free to drop by on Saturday 16th December to see the artists at work!  Barbers alley runs between Greengate street and Baalam Street, Plaistow E13 9DS.  Starting at 11, they will carry on till it’s finished, hopefully by the time it gets dark.  Looks like a sunny but cold day.

Currently we are setting up a date to meet with local residents to take forward the ideas for the alley shared so far, and in particular we want to pick up the ideas for greening the space. We are also looking into regular markets there.

To see the first mural being painted and the alley’s first open day and mini market- see the short youtube video below.
