A WORCESTER-based arts festival needs walls for artists to paint on next month.

The Worcester Paint Festival launched last year, and is a new annual event bringing renowned names in the street and graffiti art scene to the city to create an outdoor free public art trail.

Most of the walls have already been arranged, but the organisers are still looking for one more special wall for an artist to use.

Kate Cox, festival director, said: "We have most of the walls sorted but we need one more gable end to join our art trail.

"They are hard to come by, but we are just looking for a homeowner in the city centre to come forward who would like some art displayed on their home.

"The murals will stay in place for around 12 months or longer."

Artists have free rein when it comes to designs within reason, but the building owners will be liaised with before the work commences.

The wall needs to be visible for all to see, preferably not listed and to be in good quality,

The wall may also require equipment such as a scissor lift at the base so the artist can reach it, which will need to be considered.

As well as the remaining wall for this year's festival, the organisers are already looking ahead to 2023, and are asking other homeowners to come forward and offer their walls.
