Mural Fest 5th June 2011

The Mural Fest in Cuthill Park show­cased the tal­ents of 6 artists in Pre­ston­pans on the final weekend of the 3 Harbours Festival. It was one of the main events wrap­ping up the week of art exhi­bi­tions. The painters cre­ated their murals based on their dif­fer­ent inter­pre­ta­tions of a given poem.

David Grigor is one of the artists who took part in the event. It was his third time par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Mural Fest and the artist obvi­ously val­ued the experience.

“It’s the most expres­sive way of get­ting involved in it” he said. “It’s fan­tas­tic hav­ing peo­ple com­ing around just to look and ask questions”.

David talked about the ghostly atmos­phere in his paint­ing. As well as the ships being rep­re­sented in the har­bour the artist also por­trayed the indus­trial ele­ment with the trains in the back­ground of the mural. With only two days to com­plete the mural David did not have an easy task ahead of him but this seems to have added to the process.

“To actu­ally try and work through a piece of art­work within two days is very chal­leng­ing and I enjoy it all the time”.
