The latest public artwork in Stevenage by professional graffiti and mural artist Mark Tanti has been met with delight.
Mark - known by his tag Demograffix - has been steadily brightening up the town's underpasses with scenes from Disney movies such as Peter Pan and The Sword in the Stone as part of a community project, supported by Herts County Council, to encourage people to walk and cycle more. His latest undertaking is the underpass at the junction of Six Hills Way and Rockingham Way, which has been transformed with scenes from The Little Mermaid.
Mark, who lives in Stevenage, says he aims to brighten up the underpasses to help "improve people’s mental health and enrich their lives".
People have been expressing their joy at his latest offering, calling it a "fantastic job" that makes the underpass look "bright and happy", with one mum delighted her "daughter is going to love this every day, going to school".
