涂鸦画廊-英国报废轮船

涂鸦画廊-英国报废轮船

城市涂鸦除了墙壁、枯树、地面、废弃的厂房,还能更有多意想不到的地方。

停靠在英国北威尔士海岸被废弃多年的“凯兰斯特公爵号”轮船因为船体上各式涂鸦艺术而重获新生。其锈迹斑斑的巨大船体在自称“DuDug”的涂鸦艺术家眼中成为巨大的画板,赋予其无限创作灵感。

“兰斯特公爵号”曾是一艘海运渡轮,自1979年报废后,一直停靠在英国北威尔士弗林特郡迪伊河河口一座干涸的船坞中。目前船体上已经有八幅巨型涂鸦作品,日后可能还会有更多作品诞生。

将废船变为水上艺术的想法源于前街头艺术家莫里斯·布朗特(Maurice Blunt)。布朗特乘火车经过此地时发现了“兰斯特公爵号”,经过和船主交涉,便将自己独特的想法变为现实。

“DuDug”艺术家的目标是将“公爵号”改造为英国最大的露天画廊,布朗特在采访中说,目前已经有22名艺术家参与了此项目,同时正在招募更多的参与者,“兰斯特公爵号”鉴赏协会也已经成立。

An abandoned ship off the North Wales coast has been brought back to life after being covered in intricate street art. The hull of the rusting Duke Of Lancaster has been used as a blank canvas by a host of international graffiti artists, who call themselves the DuDug collective.

The former SeaLink passenger ferry has sat in a dry dock at the Dee estuary in Flintshire, North Wales, since 1979. Its hull is now covered in eight enormous images measuring up to 18m (60ft) high and 14m (45ft) wide, and there are plans for more.

Turning the ship into a floating art installation was the brainchild of former street artist Maurice Blunt, who spotted the Duke Of Lancaster from a train. Seeing its potential Maurice tracked down the owners and proposed her unique idea for transforming the forgotten vessel.
