The Graffiti Project at Kelburn Castle

Last April I wrote a post about The Graffiti Project, taking Brazilian artists and allowing them to go to town on a Kelburn Castle, a 600 year old castle in Scotland that needed some restoration. Well a reader of the site Louise Wilson definitely remembered the post because she happened to live 5 minutes away from the castle. So she was awesome enough to take some photos of the castle and send them to me, and man oh man do they look rad!

I’m a huge Os Gemeos fan, so it’s great to see they’re work front and center on the tower and the chimney. I still think it’s amazing that they even let these artists do this, but since the front of the castle had to get resurfaced anyhow, it was definitely a agreat opportunity that wasn’t wasted. Click here for more info about The Graffiti Project and check out more photos under the cut!

    I was at this too, some excellent parties around it last summer (unfortunately the cops called off this year’s festival). There was also great work done by local writers on some of the outbuildings around the castle grounds. Thanks Louise & Bobby for the pics- I might dig out some others I have and send them your way.

    Thanks Bobby, the post is ace!

    It says on the castle website that artist Nunca who took part in the project is back there doing carvings at the waterfall, it sounds excellent but sadly I couldn’t find him when I was there :/.

    Gutted about the festival! Says they’ll hold future events though, it’s such a great place to hang out in that I hope they do!

    I wonder, on a 600 year old castle, how long is the art expected to last?

    Quite a project and beautiful artwork. I suspect the pictures don’t show the grandeur of the project.
