their disappointment at having to remove a colourful display in
the town centre this week.
scene by artist SPZERO appeared on the wall of TA8s bar in Pier
Street during last month's inaugural Spray Jam festival. The unique
artwork was removed by the organisers on Wednesday.
Hewlitt, organiser of the festival, said: "We are very sad
that we are having to paint over the artwork as it has been enjoyed
by so many. We painted the site in good faith with the full permission
of the tenant."
thanks to the artist SPZERO who gave up his time and donated his
enormous talents to support the RNLI and the town by encompassing
both in our original design which brought a smile to the faces of
locals and visitors alike."
hope that people still take the time to enjoy the rest of the art
trail, a guide to which is available in the tourist information
