Bingley-based home shopping giant, Damart has commissioned a group of local artists to create a mural on the wall of its canal-side workshop after years of being defaced by graffiti.
Using Bradford Community Repaint, whose mission is to reduce paint waste by collecting leftover household paint for reuse, the mural features a map of local landmarks including the iconic Damart Mill in Bingley and Salt Mills in Saltaire.
“We are thrilled to be working with such a great community group to bring a new lease of life to our workshop. Having faced issues with graffiti on the workshop wall for many years, we hope the new artwork will deter further vandalism,” commented Ben Northrop, H&S and Facilities Manager at Damart.
Local artists contributing to the artwork include Sven Shaw (Baildon), Hannah Toehill (Shipley), Lucy Phillips (Guiseley), Andrew Szymansky (Saltaire), Shiraaz Ali (Bradford) and Tom Bailey (Leeds).
