Those are awesome, Runmonty. It takes a step beyond Banksy.

Thanks JAS. I should add that most (if not all - I am not sure) were part of a festival, were officially endorsed and ar the work of Ernest Zacharevic.

Beautiful work. 1 like the oil drum and descent shots, but for me these are superb.

This is great stuff! I'm not a cat hater or anything but I do get a chuckle out of that last one! Looks to me like the second set has a whole different theme than the first.

Glad this was of interest. Thank for your comments. We were around these areas on a public holiday and people were lining up for photos with the various artwork. It was very popular.
