The facade of the Carriageworks is living on borrowed time. The building has been in limbo for many years and is in a state of semi-dereliction. The owners appear to be waiting for the right offer to come in from potential developers before selling up. As a result, the bricked up archways have played host to some exceptional pieces of street art over the years, and has been a ‘go to’ location for locals and international artists alike.
The turnover of artwork has reduced dramatically as talk of redevelopment hots up but there has been a recent spate of work from local artists. One of those is the fabulous Mr Klue, whose abstract pieces I love and have featured countless times here before. He described this freestyle piece as a ‘quick ting’ on his Instagram account. I haven’t seen any street pieces by Mr Klue since Upfest, so this was a real pleasure to find and photograph. More please Mr K.
