Bankside has become a major area for Graffiti Art, a process accelerated after Banksy left a gift to the city. I had the remarkable fortune to photograph the bridge the day before Banksy left his gift and have a before and after of the spot he made his art. The episode inspired me to make a series of images exploring the art of bankside.
I made this image during one of the sessions for the graffiti series. I felt it typified the juxtaposition of Hull’s new art and culture and old indsutrial Hull.
